The Love I Believe In


 love I believe in ebbs and flows, flows and ebbs.
reciprocal, enduring, circular--selfless times 2.
gives or takes but mainly gives and takes

I love you but...
I love you and...
I love you or...
not joined by conjunctions; limited by qualifiers.

The love I believe in is enough without enough.
does not hurt, deny, starve.
 not prescribed, given in doses, taken in abundance, substitution for addiction.
everything or nothing but mostly everything and nothing.
tangible, attainable, reciprocal.
The love I believe in, is enough.

Until, it is not.
