When Do You Call Love 'Love'?
'When do you call love 'love'?
Is it by the grace of first sight?
Unmistakable impression that took one's heart afloat
That inspires the beginning of many poetic nights
Is it love
When two souls meet, alike
One complementing the other
Sharing each other's desires and dislikes
Is it love, still?
When one is lost in the cruelty of oblivion
Hanging just by a thread of unfailing devotion
To an unrequited passion
When do you call love 'love'?
It is when you want to articulate simply
That inexplicable sum of everything you value
As monosyllabic as possible
