my attempt to describe love

It is a feeling like nothing else you've felt before

A strange emotion which defies all logic

It can leave you sky-high, or it can rip out your heart

Makes grown men cry, and youngsters say, 'It's not for me!'

If you've never felt it, you will not understand

There's no way you can explain the unexplainable

It's been the best thing, and it's been the worst

Caused emotional pain, and made me smile

Some of the dumbest things ever done, I did in its name

When I look back on it, I just shake my head in disgust

It's almost like something outside myself had control

Made me do and say things that came from someone else

What is it, I hear you ask? 'Love' is the word

Such an innocent-sounding word, but it causes such turmoil

Four simple letters, but they may as well spell 'crazy'

For that's the way this simple word makes most of us act

L-O-V-E= bittersweet. It's both the happiest,

and the most depressed you're ever going to feel!
