Daily Prompt: Contrast

Was having a discussion about real vs perceived love the other day and thought I’d try to squeeze it into the prompt today.

A quick contrast between
Love, real and perceived;
Where both are beds of roses
The former holds thorns within

For love’s not all sweet and dreamy
There’re pains and sacrifice
I’d rather brave them by your side
Than let us live a lie

I love you as you are
Not only if you’d be
That when I give no return I ask
Except to love you free.
