Love Or Sex?
True love uplifts soul and the person simultaneously,
by Md. Ziaul Haque
Lust is familiar with one way i.e. hell only,
If our love is inclined toward love making,
Then love's true worth ‘shall' remain missing.
'A Valediction: Forbidding Mourning' and 'The Good Morrow',
Do emphasise the philosophy of Plato,
Agreed! Even amid such a sophisticated age,
Plato and his 'Symposium' are at work always.
While scanning Ovid's words, I sound like a doubter,
That 'every love's defeated by a fresh successor',
Stronger desire in 'Sonnet 151' did win over Bard's love,
For the so-called Dark Lady, his dove.
Hence none can get rid of Eros,
And Aphrodite from the hearts,
Himeros also keeps doing his job all together,
Igniting the corporal desire.
Love is a feeling so is sex,
Both being severe have the ability to earn vex,
Physical beauty shouldn't be the decisive factor,
Not a must for the lovers to go after.
