The Meaning of Love:


What is love?

Is it an actual thing,

Or is it a figment of our imagination?

How does it affect us so greatly?

Why does it affect us so dramatically?

If true love was an ocean,

Would it not be a vast, bottomless, & endless one?

if to love is to live, then what is to die?



Peace,

Conflict,

Life,

Death,

Pain,

Joy,

Serenity,

Longing,

Terror,

Anxiety,

Confusion,

Heart-ache.

THAT, is the meaning of love.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

ok so i had several inspirations and reasons to write this poem.
first i would like to thank my wonderful girlfriend for giving me my initial inspiration to dedicate a poem for the one person who has kept me going in this crazy f***ed up world. i would also like to thank all my friends.And the School of Dreams Academy for being the one school i really enjoy to be at. i think that my dance teacher, Mrs. Mcneil deserves a lot of credit for giving me the courage to do something i once thought was stupid and girlly.
THANK YOU! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

    I really enjoy this poem, not bad for a first! Not at all: 3 I have a question though, that went through my mind as I was reading... Why weren't some of your questions answered? Like the ocean one, I was looking forward to hearing your interpretation.. Good job! ^_^ I'm interested to see how your writing will progress.. (Report) Reply
