James and Janet cuddled, Ended breakfast with a kiss, Sang a song of malice for a week, Is this love? Definitely Not,
Men lost in the pool of lust, Groping for light in the cloud of vanity, Deafened by the mantras of infatuation, All in search of LOVE,
With fingers entwined, John and Jennifer had a delicious dinner, Parted ways with red eyes fixed in swollen faces, Is this love? Definitely Not,
Ladies tossed by the wind of fame, Veils of virginity blown away, Left naked on the bed of immorality, All in search of LOVE,
With a peck to the cheek, Taylor bids his daughter goodbye, Forcefully slept with her at dusk, Is this love? Definitely Not,
Prostitutes litter the streets, Living on a string of trysts, Trampling on the sacred consummation, All in search of Love,
Couples with bright smiles on the aisle, Bounded by a glittering ring of GOLD, Screams for a divorce in a fortnight, Is this LOVE? Definitely Not,
Echoes of love ebbs away, Chants of deceit fill the air, Tongues of affection dried by thirst, All in search of LOVE,
Followers throng after their leader, Painfully submit their taxes at the Public square, Masters go on a spending spree, Is this Love? Definitely not,
Divinity opened the scrolls of LOVE, Light of Love flooded the earth, Sons of darkness fled to the hills, LOVE was revealed to humanity,
Beaten and battered on the streets of Galilee, A savior with a rugged cross on a walk to Golgotha, Pleaded mercy for his killers as he died for the world, This is LOVE!
P.S: Jesus Christ is the best expression of LOVE the world has ever seen. The poem talked about other ways of expressing love and its perpetual failure; philos, eros but agape survived. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends – JESUS CHRIST
