Once again it’s the month of that four lettered word that makes heart go thumping, breath to be taken, toes to curl up in mushy feel, and cheeks to get brilliantly flushed from excess blushing (For the white folks only, because a black man do not blush lol). Yep you guessed right, it’s the month of Love! Or as a close friend would say, Lav!.
I’d like to imagine that cupid’s bow struck lonely hearts this season and in swift response, two hearts were blended in harmony. *sighs dreamily* (a girl can dream haha).
Ok back to reality, as we all know February 14th is the annual worldwide date to celebrate St. Valentine’s day though it’s not a public holiday but it is recognised as a significant cultural and commercial day in many parts of the world. It is also known as “Lovers day” contrary to what it was construed for in ancient days. It was focused on “sacrifice” and not “Romantic love” only.
To that effect, I’ve bullied my pen to bleed my deepest thoughts on what love is not in my piece entitled “Love is not valentine”. Click to read below and don’t forget to drop your opinion in the comment box as I would love to hear from you. Happy Month of Love darlings!
LOVE IS NOT VALENTINE…………
Love is not about the candle light dinner, beach walk and red roses strewn along the side walk.
Love is not gazing at the stars lovingly as your head rests on his chest while he caresses your breast tenderly.
Love is not about the pillow fights or mere words twirling like butterflies that makes your heart flutter like cheese and butter, when he’s only there to flatter and never there for things that matter.
Love is not the feeling of infatuation and blind obsession confusing this generation or the misinterpretation of love we see on television.
Love is not a one day affair or a bus fare to become a sexual offender. Above all, love is not valentine.
