True Love


True Love Spoken Word Art

by Andrea Lynn Cianflone

Is it possible to fall in love without an exchange of touch?

I never thought this idea was asking for so much.

What then, are the markers of love to measure?

Certainly, there’s more than sizzling pleasure.

Attraction…what is it anyway? A distraction from what is true and real.

Responsibility for my heart was part of the deal.

But, instead…

He joined forces with the man with the fork,

And began to dig his inner grave,

Making room for that ‘something’ we all crave.

Like filling an empty stomach,

Devouring every last morsel of my being, and with each bite,

his increase became my decrease.

His increase became my decrease


I became less of me…

and less of you,

…and less of me,

…and less of you,

…less of

…less of …less


A recipe of disaster, lead by the chef master.

Half teaspoon of charm simmer to a harm.

One cup of nice poured into a scheming device.

Whip until smooth until “man” creates “ipulation,”

I was told the outcome of suffering can be bittersweet,

But I wasn’t ready for the back and forth repeat of…

I love you.

I love you not.

I love you.

I love you not.

Like a broken record, the needle digs into the heart, for me too, you too, him too, her too...

So, you think you were brought into this world through your own designing?

Step aside, consider your rebellion and wining.

Use your reason.

It’s like personal treason to think you made you!

Treat yourself and your lover like you belong to someone else.

She’s to be the Queen of his affection, Not the King’s object of possession.

There’s a temptation to leave what is true and just

You say the grass is greener, watering your own garden is a must!

The weeds of lust must be plucked.

Or your Love for another will be f*….

Fast forward!

Is it possible to fall in love without an exchange of a touch?

Yes, indeed it is, but first to your creator you must clutch.
