Where True Love Is
True love ’s first kiss
Goes something like this:
Acknowledged and embraced,
Your insecurities are laid to waste.
By letting go of fear
and who you hold most dear;
Unconditional love surrounds you
Connecting your soul with all around who
Resonate at your deepest core
Knowing that all your needs be met means more
More love to give, more love to receive
Embracing each other’s true identity
No rules, “if’s”, “and’s” or “but’s”
We’re no longer a world of cheaters, players and sluts
I’ll be me, and you’ll be you
A limitless inner self allowed to shine true.
Radical transparency—I see you, you see me
No assumptions, games, or mind-reading.
No foundations built with missing pieces.
“One being true to one’s self” is the thesis.
All the lovers we have and have had
Leaving stars in our skies for us to be glad
That all our desires and curiosities can be explored
Rapidly evolving our inner cores
Each experience leaving one with something new
Then finding these gems to cherish in us too
I’ll love me for me
and you for you.
This is where we’ll always find bliss
No fear or ego, but true love’s first kiss
