Love Is... Poem by Adrian Henri

Love Is...

Rating: 3.5


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...

The part i like most, and that i find most true: 'love is a prison, love is free' This one line alone describes exactly what i define to be love. Well done on a poem composed from the heart!

I love the climax... I mean this poem doesn't have a proper climax. It is left on a very uncertain note. But that's the beauty of it: D Amazing work

'Love's what's there when you are away from me' True lines, never read anything describing love in so a practical way.10/10

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
