Homo Sapiens Need Love Too

Wed, 01/20/2016 - 16:54 -- Traneah

I love too hard

But doesn’t that me human

But doesn’t that make us human

We find that one

We think is the one

Because we feel in our souls they’re right

Because we feel we can’t go without them

We love too hard

But is it really “too” or just enough

But is it really love or a made up love to mask this hole we think has to be filled

We wrap ourselves in it

We allow it to suck what life we have left

Because what life is there without it

Because what will there be left without it

And we love too hard

But we question what is love

But we question if the definition is even relevant

We just know we need it

We just know we’ll do and go through whatever it takes to have it and to keep it

Because we love the idea of love

Because we love the word love

Because it’s what we’re accustomed to

Because it’s what we yearn for

And because it makes me human

And because it makes us human

So we love too hard… but who really cares
