What Is Love? - Poem by Krystal Galvis

Love is something that breaks people up
Love is an arguement
Love is cheap
What is Love?

Does love makes you cheat?
Does love save you?

What is love?
A feeling I cannot grasp
One I can't attain
And so I must complain
And sit upon this shelf
And feel sorry for myself
'So what is love? ' I ask
I think that love is not being alone
And me, I am so alone

A lack of love got me feeling alone
I have had enough of being on my own
Why don't I have love?
'Why am I alone? '

What is love?
Does it make you smile or frown?
Does it make you buy flowers or buy siccsors?
Does it make your heart beat fast or does it burn into flames?
What is love?

    Colombia, this is something the greatest minds on earth have pondered and argued over since time began. Even at my advanced age I am not sure I know the answer. Well observed and written. Take care and have fun. David (Report) Reply

    HA! That is the question. So many mixed beautiful emotions which quickly become hate when done wrong! Go figure! (Report) Reply
