What Love Is

What Love Is

A Poem by Joshua Carl Cruz

love 
is an emotion most unjust, 
most afeared, for a list of reasons
i've wriiten here: 
1. it's almost never ready
2. it's rarely ever done
3. it effects your work
4. it wrecks your home
5. it's suspicious
6. sometimes, it's just business
7. it's in the WRONG DIRECTION!!
8. it's tough to bluff
9. it doesnt play fair 
10. it kicks and it bucks like a wild horse,
      knocking you on your a*s, to be sure but...
love
it doesn't punish, 
it doesn't relinquish,
it gives without hesitation 
and it cares without explination
it lives inside of our hearts-
right alongside our loneliest 
loneliness, our reluctance, 
and our collective rage,
and yet...
it finds it's way through
love 
thunders past the ugliness,
rushes past the hurtful looks 
and senseless solitude
love 
champions a path,
love
is another chance 
for you
to find out 
what you're made of
and if not, well, my friend,
love 
eventually, 
will find it's way to you...
