Love is not a dam

Holding things back

Keeping them in their place

For as long as you want

Or need.

It is not a street

With various turns

So you can change your mind

Make a u turn

Or take a side street

Instead of the main road.

It is a river

Flowing steadily,


Moving forward one direction


It does have its twists and turns;

Ups and downs,

But it never changes course

It is always headed the same direction.
