If Love


If love

was relentless


Nothing we do

Would dissuade it

Would withhold it

If love

was relentless


Nothing we do

Could separate us

Could disqualify us

If love

was relentless.

    To love and be loved relentlessly is a blessing, I believe.

  3. Gabriella says:

    We need to learn to love some people relentlessly.

  4. In some cases love is relentless — but only if it’s mutual the outcome is good… great use of repetitions Alan..

  5. claudia says:

    i think we often reduce love to some romantic feel…it is yet indeed so much more radical…

  6. Kerry O'Connor says:

    Here’s my vote for relentless love!

  7. Gillena Cox says:

    relentless love, count me in; have a nice Sunday

    much love…

  8. Truedessa says:

    Love is indeed relentless…unending and persistent..nicely penned

  9. I believe in love’s relentlessness. And it’s power to reshape the meaning of “commitments” and “sacrifices” in order to triumph every time. Even if the win doesn’t look like so…

  10. Alan,

    I truly believe that real love will always be relentless, im many ways. Perhaps a closer bond in age, becomes part of the relentless adherance. Love knows it ways very well!!


  11. C.C. says:

    Love the intensity in this….if “nothing we do would dissuade it” then that’s a relentless, unconditional love indeed!

  12. Poet Laundry says:

    Awesome. Love this Alan.

  13. Yes, true love perseveres ~ it bonds, unites ~ a beautiful message 🙂

  14. Yes, if only…..though sometimes, it is. Beautifully penned, Alan.

  15. oldegg says:

    Relentless can be obsessive, possessive even unforgiving so let’s hope both are so enamored.

  16. Myrna says:

    I didn’t see this as referring to romantic love, a valid love for sure. But I see it more as referring to a universal love, a global love. How different the world would be if we really loved relentlessly. Good write Alan. I enjoyed reading this.
