What is Love

What is Love
Form: Free Verse
Theme: Love
Subject: 90s Music

What is the love we speak of
when we say love you each night
surely it is not the highly sexed cravings
of a Mill and Boon novel
but perhaps the high society
romance found in Jane Austen’s words
yet it is a feeling we can barely express in mere words
but it feels fucking good nonetheless
yet we know this love means giving all to another
surrendering trust to their heart
and locking it all into our own heart
knowing one day they may
shatter it like glass on a stone floor
with our tears sweeping the pain
deep into the soul
and still we want to love
want to be loved
even though love is hard
for love is the peace that strains the heart

  1. A lovely finale Jez …
    :”and still we want to love
    want to be loved
    even though love is hard
    for love is the peace that strains the heart”

    “Where Is Love?”

    Behind every word
    There is a thought
    Between every thought
    There is an emotion
    Underneath the emotion
    There is a heartbeat
    Below the heartbeat
    There is a soul
    Within the soul
    There lives love
