What Is Love?


Love is amazing
Love is baffling
Love can be an awesome thing

Love is false
Love is honest
Love can be a chauvinist

Love is pain
Love is delight
Love can be found at day or night

Love is intense
Love is gaudy
Love can be nice or naughty

Love is polite
Love is rude
Love can be misinterpreted from our childhood

Love is faithful
Love is capricious
Love can be what makes us anxious

Love is marriage
Love is divorce
Love can be a confusing force

Love is blind
Love is sighted
Love can be great when perfectly united

Love is complex
Love is simple
Love can be a great or bad example

Love is happiness
Love is infelicitous
Love can be an ever changing status

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
