True love is not a greeting card...




True...love is not a greeting card

Holding all feel close to my heart
My love for you can't be painted on a canvas
Glancing all through my thought
My love for you can't be printed on a card
True...love is not a greeting card

My love for you has no wings to fly and reach you
My love for you has no shape to fill and treat you
True...love is not a greeting card

It can't be prepared ...sorted by  fixed sizes
it can't be diluted ...weakened by rigid means
it can't be shared ...by signing deals
it can't be inherited...by owning  trades
True...love is not a greeting card

I love you and you love me is not a statement
I love you and you love me is not an agreement

it's the silent music which touches the chord of the heart
it's the brilliant light which shines the yards of the mind
it's the coolest  shower  which soothes the moments of life
it's the warmest  passion which ignites the ecstasy of soul

True love is not a greeting card...

I like how you first expressed all the things that love is NOT & and ended with four beautiful lines of what love IS. I also like the form you wrote this poem in, PT.

You've turned my prompt title into a mystery to be solved and it becomes more poignant with each repetition: It is true, and it is also true love. Warm and cool, soft and loud, you show it not a word to be bantered but a state of being: Heart, mind, life and soul. Bravo!

I like the repeating line the double mean really draws out the meaning of the poem.
