What is Love?

I’ve lost my mind, it must be so,

my reason has disappeared.

Everything seems to glow

whenever you’re near

Your smile, your eyes,

they’re brighter than stars--

The sun must be ashamed.

My heart, my mind,

they’ve been stolen by you--

The feeling is hard to explain.

With your absence present,

seconds become hours--

Slow motion takes its toll.

I force myself to focus on task,

but my heart harbors a hole.

I question why you’ve consumed my life,

but I think I already know.

I don’t want to say it,

my doubts are rife--

I’ve lost my mind, it must be so.
