What Is Love?

Some people say love is easy
But do they know what love is?
I do, and it’s dark
It’s a tunnel
Black and scary
But it tempts you.
So you fall and enter it
Once you’re in
It’s warm and pleasant
But as soon as you step out
You find the world bare
And the light and the cold
Are like daggers in you heart
Love is complicated
And hurts more than you’d think
