Sunday Scribbling: #308 Modern

Searching for
that someone,
looking for true love.
Will you be my valentine?
Those words I've never heard.
I realized
I was looking
at the problem wrong.
Love doesn't come
in a bouquet of roses
or a Hallmark card.

Love is tingling skin,
covered in chilly bumps;
warmth across the chest
or tummy flips and flops.
Love is a
that starts from within.
So when in need of
some affection,
turn that feeling
into action.
Walk, run, swim, dance.
Let the body thrive.
Indulge in a fancy
meal or perfume.
The senses come alive.
Call a friend
to catch up.
Snuggle with a book or pet.
If love is
what you desire,
then you must give to get.

No old school need
for something
outside myself.
I am already complete.
My new found
modern love
always resides in me.
And I share this abundance
with my family, friends,
and the whole world,
including you and me.

This post was inspired by The Sunday Scribblings post #308 Modern.

show someone you love them today (and that someone can be you!),

  1. You are right love is always there inside you waiting to burst out. Is it modern? Of courses it is, it's in fashion all the time!
