Aphrodite is more my speed, Valentine.

Ah love

You encompassing

Alluring

Mistress

Why is cupid a boy shooting at our hearts?

You little marksman stinker.

I think Aphrodite is more my speed

Though she will get you too.

Wanton wonderful temptress.

With her magic girdle.

When I think about love

I think about capacity and the infinite vastness of our capability to love.

And all the multitudes of ways that we love.

Ain’t it grand?

It is the little things.

Those who pay attention to what you like.

Those that cook for you.

Those who know just when to say hi.

Those who see you. Deep. And you see them.

Those that have your six.

Those that show up.

Those that remember.

Those that make the drive.

Those that hold your hand.

Those that love you anyway when you are a mess.

It is the big things too.

The public declarations of love.

The celebrations of who you are.

What you bring.

How you so do what you do.

That love truly does win over hate.

Rising strong.

I personally love fiercely

Some times against my better judgement.

Hearts were meant to be broken and torn and filled up again over and over.

But that’s all part of it

You fall

And you are caught.

If you are lucky you love yourself

And so many others too.

Embracing love in all its shades and forms.

Tis the way it is.

I think so anyway.

So, with love on this day of Valentine’s.

Sling your arrows you gods and goddesses

We’ll abide, and love and love and love.

Hook, line and sinker.

Alas, I don’t think there is any other way.

And I’m good with that.

Happy Valentine’s Day Darlings.

Thank you for giving that little heart below a nudge if you liked this. :)
