When Love Swipes

I was tagged by @eyewrote to come up with a poem for the prompt: loves me for me. I was struggling to come up with something because I was looking at it from a romantic viewpoint.
This poem is more like a criticism to the way many of us currently relate…we are singled out simply by the way we look. That is all that matters. And keep swiping, for the grass is greener on the other side. I choose to relate on a higher and profound level. .

When Love Swipes
.
.
Yes.
Most humans are fitted with buttons that when properly pressed,
An intersection of hormone, bubbles.
We all enjoy this libidinous malarky
No commitments, our lives lived in autarchy.

On this roll of the dice, effort inexists.
Although, a resonating question persists,
Why do they choose to have sex
When they could be making love?
They choose pleasure, instead of
Biding souls through blood and sweat,
In acceptance for where we are at.
I’ll exchange my DNA with someone who loves me for me.
And who sees beyond physical superficiality. .. #divastate #poetry #poetryreaders #poetrylovers #poetsofig #instapoet #instapoetry #instaquotes #micropoetry #modernpoetry
