The Definition of Love

It has been an undertaking since civilization began,

Striving to decipher the sensation of touching your lover’s hand.

Attempting to make sense of the powerful chaos and confusion,

Caused by love’s entire disillusion.


A power that can transform dark into light,

One that can make everything wrong seem so right.

Love’s magic can make this dreary and destructive world,

Seem to sparkle like a newly found pearl.


In order to grasp it’s true potential and power,

Countless have tried to define it in words of ours.

Yet no diction can describe such a beautiful force,

One forging both jubilation and remorse.


It can only be grasped by two lover’s devotion,

The definition of love is defined by emotion.
