Love Affair in the Color L graphic

always Love Less,
            to avoid a heartbreak,
                        Love is one day Loss.


                        Liftoff Liberally,
            evading heartbreak is
no way to Live a Life.

Love Lashes us with
a Laborious Lease.
It Leans Like Lava,
Locked in Limbo, Leaving
Lonely Lands.

Like Light,
Leaving Leaves to fall Like
Lopsided Lullabies; it
Lives Livid or Lame,
Loyal or Liable,
Lush or Lurid,
Lethal when Lost;
it is the Luxury of
gamblers Living Large.
