What is love?

Is it in the heart or in the soul?
What is the point the final goal
Is it of the spirit or of the mind?
And why must it be so hard to find
If there is beginning is there an end
If there is does ones heart mend
A simple yet painful grief
Stealing ones soul like a thief
Giving the illusion of perfection
Bleeding the soul without detection

Capturing the definition for love is something not easily done.  I agree with you that it is both a negative and positive emotion.  I like the way that you wrote this piece.

   Hey, I really liked this. Your style is really cool, it shows independence and a certain shabazz. Keep posting.

A well thought out poem and very interesting too, keep up the good work.  But I guess we'll all know love when we find it.

Sometimes it's hard to describe love, but I think you did a wonderful job.  My favorite line was "stealing ones soul like a thief."  Nice job!

"A simple yet painful grief
Stealing ones soul like a thief
Giving the illusion of perfection
Bleeding the soul without detection"

I belive that was the strongest part.. and it concluded the poem nicely
Well done on "what is love?"
hope to read more
best wishes

First off I really like that symbol in your signature......does that stand for something?

And second this was a beautiful poem, capturing lifes biggest question is hard to do, but you did, well might i add! Great job.

great, thanx for the feedback everyone, as for my 'style' i try not to confine myself to any certain form or pattern, I find the emotions and ideas are better served when i just let them flow directly to the paper. and about my signature, I not sure which symbol your talking about I just wanted somethin other than conventional letters...anyways thanx again everyone.

This was nice. Love.....love is all that matters.



I was born myself, raised myself, and will continue to be myself. The world will just have to adjust.

I'm in love with my shadow
I admire it daily
