Even More Truth About Love

Loves unites.

The initial love affair, the falling in love period, unities the power of biological passions. Half the cells of the body sing, the other half dance and a third half float on sunbeams. (Don’t question the math of lovers.)

Biochemistry produces a drug bombarding receptors stimulating pleasurable responses. We’re happy, positive, strong, satisfied and insatiable. And immortal (temporarily). Although the body continues to produce this drug the receptors tire. They wear down and lose the strength to react. Honeymoon’s over.

Don’t panic. The body adapts. It shouts, “OK, stop production of the uppers, start downer production.”
At this point we go from the high of passion to the mellow of love. The falling in love chemistry produces an amphetamine class drug and then (to survive) it shifts to a morphine-based substance. This will protect us from the slings and arrows of outrageous daily life. In other words we go from stimulants to comforters.

That’s the biochemistry of love working to keep us united.

I’ll give you all my passion
tenderness, attention, patience
generousity, consideration, humor
and respect
as long as the infatuation lasts.

After that
you’ll have to make do with my love.
