Love Is Not

What love is not

Love is not cynical

Love is not unkind

Love is not controlling

Love is not blind


Love does not harm

Love does not boast


Love isn't a father weighing down his children

Love is not domestic violence, then saying 'I love you'

Love is not toxic friends who use you

Love is not saying you'll be there for someone, then leaving them feeling lonely


Love is not words

Love is action


Now is the time to prove your love

Through a simple thing called actions
