  in the movies people freeze time when they kiss
they illuminate when their skin brushes lightly against one another
its security you can't buy
they lay beneath warm cotton sheets embalmed and cured with sweat & passion.

in the movies it only takes twenty minutes to fall in love.

in life people make a resemblance of a relationship out of strong infatuations
they endure hurt & pain to avoid being alone
they pledge their cages to their partners but the birds inside belong to someone else.

in life it takes decades to retrieve thoroughly the concept of love.
