Everyone currently dating needs to ask the question…Am I in love or am I in lust? Lust literally means over-desire. It is when you take something that is good, twist it, and add cravings to it so you are consumed until you are gratified. Love is the foundation our families and society are based on. Lust is just a physical emotion that we act upon when we get caught up in the moment. However, most of us fall in love with someone we find physically attractive. Because of this, hurt and confusion can easily be caused when you or your partner confuse love and lust with each other. Lust is an intense sexual desire or appetite that is based on self-gratification and has little to do with true feelings for the other person.
Lust before love
I know I'm older than you are, You still get carded in a bar, But when you climb into my car I feel our love can go so far. The time you spend just holding me Helps make me think you'll always be The one who loves me, makes me see That you're the one who sets me free. Our passion can be all we keep As we serve lust before we sleep, And enter dreams so very deep, Where we are one, and love we reap. Your smile can set the world agleam, You always treat me as your dream, When we make love we share our cream, Our touches make each other steam. You touch me dear, and make me sigh And I can send you, oh, so high. Our bodies know it is no lie, Without this love we'd surely die.
