Definition Of Love

Poem By Elizabeth Haasch

Here I sit my dear
trying to explain to you this situation I am in.
this is now a phrase with so much meaning.
A story I wish to tell to all

I told myself I have loved before
but what do they say love is.
A longing for,
a yearning for deep passion,
deep appreciation, contentment.

Webster’s dictionary describes it as
a profoundly tender,
passionate affection for another.
A feeling of warm personal attachment
or deep affection.

Everyone has their own meaning
of this little word and I have found
my meaning of love and
it's description is nothing longer
than a three letter word.

I’m sick of the madness.
The hoping for more than you’ll ever have.
The antique hearts rusting away
like a carousel that’s never be ridden.

Wanting You

So as I am sitting here screaming out in pain.
Walking on egg shells.
Walking on broken glass
wondering how to tell you


Why I sit here in the dark.
Why I do the things I do.
Why is a question that keeps running through my head.
The tears flowing free like a stream of welled up thoughts of us.

Meaningless Tragedy

This sweet sorrow
this meaning of tragedy.

Again I question.

A Promise

Another night alone dear
as I wait for the sound of a ring through the silent air.
Sitting, waiting, watching it just there.
You’ll call one day and then I won’t be ready
