Love or Lust?

by Praveen Kumar

love or lust - Love or Lust?

it was love at first sight,
the moment i met you,
sparks flew and brought us,
closer and together;

barely a minute goes by,
without me thinking,
is this too good,
to be true;

i pinch myself from time to time,
just to make sure i am not dreaming,
and not hallucinating all this,
between you and me;

a touch here, a touch there,
a kiss here, a kiss there,
a gentle caress, a playful nibble,
hands all over everytime we are together;

few seconds of leaving you out of my sight,
a frantic search begins, scanning everything and everywhere,
and it stops only when i find you,
standing, smiling and playing with my heart;

your lips against mine,
as we indulge in our sins,
your body next to mine,
entwined in our flame of ecstasy;

in the moonlight glow,
as we drift into deep peace,
tell me baby,
is it Love or is it Lust?

this can either be taken as a standalone poem or as a continuation of the previous two poems – Love at First Sight and Together.

Beautifully spoken. As I read this writing, I went back to my 2011 summer lover. Two lustful weekends together, following several months of romantic e-mails and followed up by several more.

It’s all over now as she could not cope with a long distant relationship where time together was limited to telephone conversations, e-mails, texts and annual visits to be together.

Though I still cherish her so, remaining in my heart and soul both day and night. I now accept our relationship as a close friendship and pray only that someday it may be more.

Thank you Sandy. It can be both love and lust, buts that only a small percentage, i think.

“Love or Lust” sounds like lust turned into love. Sometimes that’s the way it goes… but friendship, companionship and trust in my opinion is the best way to start a relationship. Edie T.
