Love needn’t be difficult or complex
Like these two lovebirds
Who enjoy each other’s company.
Love needn’t be pretentious or a burden.
Love needn’t be about wealth and class.
Love should be based on true feelings,
Borne out of a pure heart
Not on lust.
Do you notice the dirt in the picture? To me, it implies imperfection, loving someone doesn’t mean they are perfect, neither are you! But we should love them anyway!!
We live in a very complex world, someone once told me he doesn’t believe in love, and I failed to convince him otherwise. Recently I read a newspaper article where the author claimed that a high percentage of people in London, live alone, loveless. It’s a modern malaise and its frighteningly apocalyptic in nature. As naïve as I may sound, I still believe in love!
Have a fantastic weekend friends and live well, and… erm… love well!
Much love, always!
Many things love shouldn’t be! Great weekend post!
Thank you Christy!
Brilliant post Seyi. I love it 🙂
Thank you Alastair, I’m really fed up with this spam filters! 😦
I am. I still haven’t had a response from Akismet. I’m going to see if I can contact them directly
Oh I really like this! Have a fantastic weekend yourself!
Thank you Pamela, I’m glad you like it! Do enjoy your weekend!

What is love to you?
Thanks for the Reblog dear friend!
I believe in love, too 🙂 Love prevails, no matter what. What a beautiful piece about love, sis.
Thank you dear Uzoma, love is a real living force, not the Hollywood fast and furious lust being plastered on our screens! Do have a great weekend!
ROFLMAO! I love Fast and Furious movie for sure 😆
But seriously, you’re right. Love is a real living force. It unifies. Wish you a great weekend too.
Thanks dear brother, I love that film too! Enjoy the rest of your day!

o.m.g those birds look so cute
Thanks for the Reblog Yasmine, I appreciate it! Have a splendid weekend!
Danke dir für deinen Besuch und wünsche dir einen schönen Abend und ein tolles Wochenende Klaus
You’re welcome dear friend! And thanks for stopping by!!
Sandra,you are not naive. Let others be cynical about love. We know best. Even here my friends mock at me I know behind my back about some sacrifices I make daily for the sake of my husband and children. I always tell them I will rather be poor than to be rich in a loveless marriage.
I know what you mean, people hardly believe in the ‘tangible real and selfless love,’ some women have for their hubby, besides all things are temporal, why can’t one enjoying true love! Have a great weekend dear sis!
I believe in love, and if you show love you receive love. Living alone does not mean without love, still it depends on yourself too. To be loved, be lovable, Ovid says!
You’ve got a large heart Ute, I know you’re a ‘love person’ and you’re right about being lovable! It’s sweltering hot today, I’m sure you’re having a blast! Enjoy the rest of your weekend girlfriend!
It is great today , love it ! Thanks Seyi
Knew you would! 😉
I believe in love. God is love! I’ve come to find out that sometimes people don’t know what love is and if they don’t give it they don’t receive it well. To me love is unconditional and selfless 🙂
It is JC, hope we’ll spread the love regardless of the recipient’s archaic view! I appreciate your visit and comment! Have a great weekend dear friend!!
Great post, Seyi! Not believing in love is kind of like not having hope. Why bother? The picture’s perfect. 🙂
Exactly! Try telling my friend that, he’ll still scoff!! Thanks for your visit!
A sweet tweet! 🙂
I believe in love. But – I think it needs to start with loving oneself. Love can easily be lost otherwise. Well – that’s what I think.
That’s well said Rosy! You can’t give what you don’t have! Have a fantabulous weekend!! And pls, check your spam folder, I don’t know if my comment is hiding there!
I fear… If that statistic(a high percentage of people in London, live alone, loveless.) is true cos (this may sound cliche but…) love is the only way…
Love is the only way, you’re right about that! Thanks for your visit!
An excellent photo!
Thank you John, enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Biblically…love is not an emotion… it is an act…an act of self- sacrifice.
For the most part… when a man tells a woman that he loves her…..what he is really saying is that he loves himself and he wants her. How sad.
You’re right Ike, people rarely know the true meaning of love, thanks for your visit! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Truly lovely piece! It resonates with me! I really love this. Much love to you too!
Thank you dear friend, I’m glad you like it! Have a great day!
Very well written – a cute photo… 🙂
Thanks dear friend! Enjoy the rest of your day!
Love really is not perfect but, like you, I still believe it is possible. Enjoy the weekend, dear friend!
You’re right Christy! Love is possible!! Hope you’re have a relaxing weekend Christy!
Much love. 🙂
It is wonderful that so many comments show how much we all feel this post as real to each of us, I think you posting this is a sign that you are still sensitive and those who comment respond to that as well.
Posts that get this response are important, they show us we still feel.
good posting thanks
Lovely post. I believe in love, I am a sucker for love, it is such a beautiful thing! And true love makes us kinder and more humane, it changes us. Love changes everything for the better.
You’re right Anne! Glad to see you around, hope you’re great!
Much love. 🙂
Not naïve at all. Love is all there is, people just don’t recognize it. JMO.
Thanks for your comment Lori!
Love borne of heart not lust – yes, that’s something I learned in my mid 20s. Big lesson. Love is so beautiful, Seyisandra. Lovely poem. And LOVE those GORGEOUS yellow birds 🙂
Thanks dear friend, love is the biggest miracle of life! I’m glad you like it!
Much love. 🙂
I loved the part about love accepting imperfections– great insight and wisdom there.
Of course, I’ll always believe you are perfect, Seyi… : )
