What Is Love?

What is love?
If you can’t see the one you love?
What is love?
If you can’t hold the one you love?

What is love?
If others condemn it?
Setting their bloody eyes on you,
Pointing their crooked fingers,
Whispering amongst themselves,
Like wicked elves, plotting, conspiring…

What is love?
If you do not know if you love someone?
Pondering aimlessly,
Trying to crack the code,
Just to reach another dead end,
Wandering, searching,
In this hopeless maze…

What is love?
If you can’t love?
What is love?
If you can’t be loved?
What is love?
If you can’t tell someone
how much you love them?
What is love?
If I can’t tell you that I love you…

What is love?
Do you know the answer, dear reader?
Or are you too the seeker,
Seeking for what is love?
