Love is basically an emotional bond, finer and stronger than sex and gifts.
LOVE: a sonnet

Love is an emotion that is unique,
It just cannot be kindled or be killed.
Coming from heart, it does not bear critique,
It has been as man’s strongest power billed.

In love one can truly give one’s own life,
In love one can take another life too.
For husband, sacrifices does make wife,
Husbands also love their wives, it is true.

But when love is another name for sex,
It loses its power that is divine.
When its value is paid in bills or cheques,
It turns from spirit to the cheapest wine.

Bonds of love are deep in lovers’ heart laid.
It’s not love if it’s sought to be repaid.
