We all seek & want to know

We speak longingly of it

The world around us touts a version

That centers on our gratification

Foolishly we bought their sale

Now we question for what we bought

leaves us unfulfilled and dissatified

so we seek more or different or exotic

Could it be that the world around was mistaken

This thing we seek is not hinged on our gratification

but on the warmth and joy in the considered joy

and building up of another who is dear to our hearts

and the gratifications are just an added fillip to both

our pleasures?

    Exactly so. To me love is caring more about her happiness than my own.

    Well, many still can’t handle the real truth.

    Gratification is ceertainly a part of it. Maybe to some it is enough. My idea is that if someone whose opinion we respect can love us… maybe, just maybe, we can learn to lover ourselves

      the gratification is the gravy not the meat. And yes if someone for whom we have high regard loves us it affects our own perception of ourself

        and btw that persons high opinion of us causes us to love them even more than ourselves. Huuu. hard to define. Warmth on a cold winter night is part of it. A full and satified stomach is part of it. and there was an old sappy song that had a line in it. “The way it makes me seem when i am with you.” or something like that.

          then we have the definition that is found in the “owner’s manual”

          I was thinking this might have come from sonnets from the Pourtuguese, but not so. The words were similar in parts, it was the music that was sappy.
