Love songs leave out the in between

Love is not a constant
That peak, that rush that new
It’s not sustained
Not even Gomez and Morticia love
It’s not a note held inviolate against the firmament

Love is choice
I choose you
Not out of obligation
Not out of social pressure
Not even internal fears
I choose because in you there is the resonance which reinforces an us

Maybe that seems unromantic
Maybe that seems like a obliteration of you as yourself

I’d say that without the you of you there could be no us of us
That to stand together we must first be able to stand apart
And in the co-mingling of our hearts we are more

So how is that not constant when you are in my every deed and thought?

How is it not that delicious heady of beginning love?
To me it feels simple.
The constant is a contentment
And amid those days of content are hours of joy sprinkled with revelatory minutes of bliss

But if I were to judge based upon that false belief in purity of bliss when truly in love, well…no one would ever find that

And that is what people are looking for
What they’ve been led to believe in
By what they’ve fed upon
Perhaps they will feed on this
And know another truth

Or perhaps I’m just a romantic of another flavor
