Love is a drug/ Valentine’s Reflection
Collaboration with Zaira Abbas
Love is a drug
That can make you heal
It’s so strong sometimes
You cant describe how you feel
Love can make you expose
All that you’ve been trying to conceal
It makes you lose control on your own self
You’re left unsure of what to keep inside and what to reveal
Love is understanding
that feelings are temporary.
A tendency to tell you sweet
It’s a temptation I fight daily.
Love gets you rolling free
Like a detached wheel
All the layers you’ve been trying to hide in
Slowly or suddenly, all of them will peel
I’ve had a habit of holding hearts hostage.
Thinking that bondage was how we bonded.
But once I lost the captives, my. capacity for love dropped again.
Love can make you laugh like never before
But it is also the very thing that’ll make you squeal
It makes you dream too much
So much so, that you forget what’s real
Love either makes you proud
Or it will force you to kneel
It’ll bring you the softness of a feather
Or it will leave you as hard as steel
Love can make you sell yourself short
But sometimes, it’s a fair deal
Be careful, for the passion eventually withers away
Very few actually know, how to maintain its zeal
Love is looking at your reflection and not facing your rival.
It’s breaking bread with your brothers and supporting you sisters.
It’s having faith in the unseen and
trusting in the face of adversity.
We all deserve compassion.
So let’s pursue it passionately.
