Poetry On Odyssey: Three types of love

When we fall for someone it usually turns into one of these three types of love

Poetry On Odyssey: Three types of love

The first love is often the shortest

It happens suddenly and without warning

Like a firework exploding in the night sky

It is beautiful and wondrous

I cannot imagine life without it

But it ends

Usually for some silly reason

Or because neither I nor you were mature yet

Looking back upon it I try to pretend it was not love

But it was all the love I knew at the time


The second type of love is most hurtful

This is the love you imagine would last forever

You learn from this love and it makes you stronger

Like all things that become strong

To become stronger you must be broken first

This love will betray you, lie to you, damage you

But in the end, you grow

You find what you truly want from another person

You find your limits

However, this love closes you

You became cautious with your heart


The third type of love is the most unexpected

We were comfortable in our loneliness

In the bleak emptiness, we found ourselves

Love crept back into our lives

Like the silent dawn, its light covered us completely

We could see everything now

Despite every wall, we built

Despite every emotion hidden away in the darkness

Everything came to the light created by love

We no longer hide anything from each other

We can finally see the beauty in our flaws

Because we grow together in every moment

In all of the vastness of the universe

We found each other


True love is something developed

It is not stumbled upon but earned

It is the greatest blessing because of the journey to it

It does not need to change or adapt

It is simply enough
