Although our devotion is premeditated,

It ebbs and flows freely, unregulated,

No clauses on how it should be demonstrated,

The result, our affection is accentuated.

We highlight the beauty, natural and pure,

Elevating each other, we can’t see the floor,

Always a thrill, never a bore,

We surrender, OMNIA VINCIT AMOR.


Love is a complex thing to define, but giving and receiving it doesn’t have to be. In fact the more you meddle with it, and try to be controlling, the more it will evade you.

Just like holding jelly in your hand, then squeezing it tight to keep it there, you’ll only make it more elusive and make a mess in the process!

Instead, surrender to the natural beauty of love, don’t be excessively demanding, try to be more supportive and nurturing in your approach towards it.

This will give love the best chance to thrive for you, thus enabling it to bless you with its benefits and other positive influences.

Love and Respect always,

Following Whispers.

Author: Following Whispers

Hello, I'm Following Whispers, an English poet and author who has been writing for around two decades. I'm a self-professed geek who can get deep sometimes, but I personally don't take myself too seriously, I just love to have fun, plus inspire myself and others. In my early twenties, I realised that beauty can be born out of not only love, but also pain and other motivations. The more I used writing poetry to make sense of my busy mind, the more it helped me to find a silver lining in even the darkest emotions, experiences, observations and topics; find positivity even in the face of extreme negativity; find strength when I was being forced to feel weak; and find hope that my tomorrows would be brighter. I began publishing my writing in 2018 and currently have two books available Worldwide, including my most recent release "Confront The Shadows". I have bared my soul in each and every one of my poems, and I'm confident that you'll get just as much from reading them and relating them, as I did from writing them. Please feel free to look around my site and read the free poems I've shared here, after which, why not grab a book of mine, drop by Instagram, connect with me and say hello!
