Love Is...

Love is...

Love is feeling cold in the back of vans

Love is a fanclub with only two fans

Love is walking holding paintstained hands

Love is.

Love is fish and chips on winter nights

Love is blankets full of strange delights

Love is when you don't put out the light

Love is

Love is the presents in Christmas shops

Love is when you're feeling Top of the Pops

Love is what happens when the music stops

Love is

Love is white panties lying all forlorn

Love is pink nightdresses still slightly warm

Love is when you have to leave at dawn

Love is

Love is you and love is me

Love is prison and love is free

Love's what's there when you are away from me

Love is...

    love is love
    a draft of life
    a graph of life
    surfing struggle of luscious kiss
    thorns on the waist of flowers
    sleepless happiness of moonlight
    sleepless night to greet golden sun
    to make drink honey the thirsty soul
    to burn all desires in the scorching summer
    to allow the death on the winter path of biting cold

    love is love
    cannot live long
    without inner death

    Love is above everything
    Love is what makes me human
    Love is the sparkle that glows in the night
    Love is the bliss I enjoy with you
    Love is above everything...
