Love is
What is love?
It is bittersweet
Painfully beautiful
Do you hear
Do you see
Do you understand
What it means to love
And to be loved in return?
What it's like to
Have the power
To destroy the one who loves you
Who in turn has that power over you?
Write me a story
Sing me a song
Breathe to me a sigh
Love finds me both joyous and downcast
Euphoric, but later withdrawn
How wonderful, how terrible
Love seems to be
Life is nothing without love
Without love,
Life has less meaning
It is greyer
Love brightens my days
Love is the sun in my sky
Love is my life
Love is life
Love is
This of my less structured pieces of poetry.
It has no particular rhyme or rhythm to speak of, but it works for me.
My feelings and perspective on what love means to me...I'm not trying to make other people conform to how I think!
(although, if you cannot find any truth in this piece, that makes me sad. Love is important!)
Please tell me what you think, as this is a serious piece of work and took some thought. I am developing quickly as a poet, and I am considering writing more to submit here.
Hope to hear from y'all,

looks like I'm your first cynic. This is beautiful and I think it flows really well even if it doesn't have an extremely formal structure. And it sounds like a person in love, I had the same mental eye-rolling response that friends in love give me.

it is, isn't it?
no matter how bad it can get because of love, love is still, at the heart of everything, something incredible and amazing.
All sorts of things happen because of love - so love has a lot of power over people, see?
Love is good :)

this is beautiful...
i really really like it.
i don't think it matters if it ryhmes and it seems fairly structured to me.

thankyou! :D I'm glad you think so...
I'm big on love, personally....but that's mostly (not entirely, though) because I've got my guy who's perfect for me. That's not to say he is actually perfect (in general) but that he's perfect for ME. :D Ta for the fave.
Feel free to look at my other work (I'm seriously lacking in feedback at the moment, and anything you might be able to say would be welcome!)
