What Is Love?

What Is Love?

For what is love, but hearts torn asunder
Emotions dancing in the pale moonlight
The illusion of love that pulls us under
Yet longing so strong, our hearts ignite

How can something be so simple, yet so perplex?
That makes us frail, but powerful
Our souls it does vex

It brings delight, but also fright
That it can fail, and burn to ashes
It weaves itself into our very blood
Seeps through our many gashes

Pain replaces jubilation
Replaces it with melancholy
What once was elation
Becomes a dark misery

I am 15 years old, and I love poetry and all forms of literature. I have a passion for music, literature, and many of the arts.
