What is Love, Anyway?

Love is patient.

Love is kind.

I've heard it all.

But I don't know if I believe any of it

They should change that

Love should be patient

Love should be kind

Love destroys

Relationships, trust, friendships...

Love has the power to

Change people

For better or worse

To make your tummy flutter 

And your eyes smile

Love has the power to

Make me move closer

To hold your hand

But the power is abused

It's manipulating

It's a sideways view of what it should be

What is Love, anyway?

A force to be reckoned with

A bondage?

Or something to set your free?

What is your Love like?
