Love

Love is,
but a whisper,
but a whimper,
but a word,

But a sequence,
but a cycle,
but a series,
but a chord,

But a moment,
but an instant,
but a second,
but a spell,

But a teacher,
but a student,
but a mentor,
but a hell.

Love is,
found tomorrow,
found today,
forever more,

Is a heartache,
is a serpent,
is a headache,
is a whore.

Love is,
but a perfume,
but a fragrance,
but a smell,

But a turmoil,
but a battle,
but a conflict,
but a cell.

Love is,
contraceptives,
so subjective,
thoughts abound,

So elusive,
so conducive,
so conclusive,
does confound.

Yet the silence,
met by violence,
does deceive,
the mortal soul,

In the morning,
comes the warning,
what was halved,
can now be whole.

Love is,
Perfect,
Love is,
Simple,

Love is,
Tempting,
Love is,
Fine.

Love is,
Awesome,
Love is,
Terror,

Love is,
Special,
Love is,
Mine.

  1. This is beautiful. I loved it because it expresses so much emotion and it is well balanced with just the right things to say. I loved how it flowed from one line to the next. An excellent piece of poetry, well done đŸ˜€

  2. First off, thanks for checking out what we’re doing at the everyday poetry project. Second, I enjoyed this poem very much; Anaphora at its best! Often I bemoan a general excess of “Love” poems, but this is an example I’m happy to except. All the best!
