Love and Lust by Hersh

Love cannot happen at first sight,
Lust can.
Although, not many know the difference
Love is beautiful
Lust is insidious
It manipulates and burns
It will be disguised as love
Until a sacrifice is asked for.

To find real love,
You have to look through the deception
As true love is your only salvation
