A poem about the meaning of love.


by glennhenley

What is love But the creeping sensation of sudden drowning

Flowers in the spring and the darkness of night The heat of summer and the cold of winter

Harsh and unforgiving, enduring and everlasting Bubbling joy mixed with all-encompassing fear

A newborn baby, yet an old friend Stretching its arms under doors and through windows

Hiding, lurking in the shadows; it is everywhere It grabs you and never lets go- but neither will you

Love is an incurable disease infecting you with eternal ecstasy

It's certainly a different (in a good way) interpretation of love, and I think it's fantastic how you managed to paint a word picture of love as something terrifying and tender at the same time.
