Crush vs. Cookie

by Sassykat

A crush

Is as constant as rain

Falling where it will

Coming and going

Drowning and blinding or

Light and leaving you cold.


Is as subtle as a hurricane

Raging over land and sea

Heart and mind

Overwhelming the senses

Leaving devastation in its path.

True Love

Is as ambiguous as a river.

True Love

Is as direct as a flame.

True Love

Is as proud as a pauper,

As negative as a proton,

As jarring as a feather.

As ultimately satisfying as a good cookie.

It was more of a description of differences, not really a pro/con thing--With just a hint of sarcasm thrown in, just for the heck of it. :)

Your title hooked me, so I had to read this. I'll admit I was expecting some more humor, which didn't come. However, I did like this- although I wasn't completely sure whether this is "pro" crush or against it. Are you saying true love is good or bad? Or are you just saying you can't be sure?
