Poem: A definition of love that falls short of a definition.

Love is about giving
Love is about taking
Love is about …


Hold a moment

Love is not an action
Love is a feeling
Love is not a determination
Love is not a destenation
Love …

Hold me and forget

Hold a moment

Love is not about you
Love is not about me
Love …

Being closer to you so I smell your hair
Touch the tip of your nose and
Taste your lips uncompromised

Hold it
Hold it

Getting close, too close

Love is about hurting
Love is about needing
Love is about …

Tears and

Hold it
Hold it

Violent love is like a hurricane
Destroys and leaves nothing but

So …

Love is about holding gently
Love is about letting go kindly
Love is about …

Tenderness of the
Moments in your arms
Brightness of the
Sun shining in your eyes

And …

A single kiss …

Love is …

Definitions fail …
