Lost Love

Love,lust,infatuations...these have been at wars in people's head,what would stop this fight?A thin line can do that.

I was in this heated argument with my friend some time ago, and the issue was that the feeling many young people have towards the opposite sex is nothing but Lust and not Love. My basis of the argument was, however, centered on the true meaning of love in 1 Cor. 13:4-6; if the love I profess is not centered on this, then it's not love.

Belinda couldn't wrap her head around the reason for her restlessness. She wasn't someone with so much resistance, and this made her so sensitive. Before Jeff, she had little or no worries; besides, her mum had told her that her business was just her studies and nothing more. Her relationship with Jeff was like a sweet sound in her silent world, and she wouldn't want to deny her ears that, but why was she restless.

Many questions were just lined up right in front of her, requesting answers, but she couldn't help but stare at them. Was it guilt? she hadn't been in any way physical with Jeff, was it fear? She had been doing a good job keeping her newfound love away from her parents. She thought of sharing her thought with Jeff, but she later brushed it all aside; just seeing Jeff was enough to take her worries away. She decided to stop thinking about it at all, but it wouldn't budge...It kept coming. Something was knocking.

I guess her body had seen her relationship with Jeff as a foreign body, and her immune system is actively attacking it hence the restlessness. Something still didn't sit well in her heart about what she had with Jeff. There were voices in her head screaming, 'This is not part of it!'.She loved what she shared with Jeff, and she tried to resist whatever would put an end to that. Maybe she shouldn't have built all those principles, but it was her fault; they were 'default principles'; they chose her, and she could do little or nothing about it. 'Is this what love feels like?' she thought to herself, or is it the punishment for loving Jeff? Is love a crime? The questions couldn't just run short.
