What Is Love?
What is love?
It is every love song you have ever heard wrapped in silver
It is the taste of amber fire on your tongue
It is a silken sheet both smooth and strong linking your hands
It is dancing down the beach with waves and sweat melting and mixing
It is being close without being cloying
It is placing your head on their chest and hearing your own heartbeat
It is a field of amaranth and simbelmynë
It is a woven song of starlight and dewdrops
It is made of butterflies caught in a prism of light
It is elusive incense smoke and twice as potent
It is a forest of sakura formed from snow
It is a golden rose with petals of wind-cast sand
It is innocence reflected with a shine of hope
It is seeing a world in a river stone’s smile
It is when dreams mirror reality until both intermingle
It is a multitude of paradoxes both tantalizing and frustrating
It is blood and tears and trust
It is not wanting to live when they have died
Is that love?
Then perhaps I speak only nonsense…
