At the lookout for Love

At the lookout for Love

Which we all are, aren't we, always?

Longing for this romantic touch, glimpse, chill.
We try to
Hold it
Embrace it
Grap it

I've taken leading to reflexes which are NOT in my best interest, i.e.
to advance in life.
Which is the underlying current of all life.
Fear working against it.
Love embracing it.
