Questions You Will Never Answer - Poem by Not Long Left

What is love without patience
What is lust without want
What is desire without temptation
What is compassion without empathy.

It is the moon without the sun
The tree without the branch
The Breast without the child
The poet without the pen

It is the great gap without the bridge
Where you on one side stand and I the other
