What is Love?

What is Love?

A Poem by XO Nonie

What is love
If you have not lost
Maybe to another
A taller
Smarter
Version of you

What is love
If you have not given it your all
To end your day with a smile
Or even some tears
That he will never know you shed

What is love
If you have not forgiven
That night he forgot to text you
Or the morning it took all day to say "hi"
And you throw the phone wishing you didn't care

But what is love
If you did not care
It would not be anything
Because love without care and trust
Is nothing but a sugar coated LUST

I'm relieved to know that someone finally understands the difference between love & lust. But it's true, what is love if you didn't choose to care? Lust happens when those are lonely & just wanting some 'fun' or 'available attention'. Love is experiencing highs & lows, ecstasy & heartbreak alongside the one you've come to care about. It's such a crazy thing how when you fall in love, it makes you feel everything & at times, make you wish you never felt anything at all...I feel one is in love when every minute you spend with that person never seems to ever be enough...that's how I realized when I was truly in love. We all deserve love, not to be blinded on that glorious road by the selfish act of lust. Very powerful write & I truly enjoyed the message!

A beautifully written piece trying to explain true love or what it takes to be in true love.
Love without care and trust cannot anyway be called love. It can be anything but love.
Thanks for sharing this one. Keep writing...

lmao I know I'm not the only person that started singing when I heard the title. "What is love? baby don't hurt me... don't hurt me... no more" But I liked it. Your poetry is really good and I am glad that you requested it to me.

Nice way to express how it can be so often in life . . . people diving into lustful experiences when their hearts are really craving a meaningful connection. You've shown the little ways we get annoyed instead of trying to be understanding . . . your message is an effort to coax everyone to be more caring & trusting . . . without sounding preachy.

I loved the lines:
"What is love
If you have not given it your all
To end your day with a smile
Or even some tears
That he will never know you shed"
Really amazing piece!
