There are so many definitions for love. What does it mean to you?

What is love

A four letter word


Meaningless to some people

The world to others

To those who hate

It is hidden in darkness

For those who care

It is surrounded by light

Love is a lot of things

Family, friends

Cars and dogs

For me love is eternal

It means a lot to me

To love is to never let them go

To care for someone so much

Your heart aches with the emotion

When you love a person

You are willing to give your life

So that they may live

When the person you love leaves

Your heart is torn from your chest

It is a deep, agonizing hole

One of which you think you will not recover

What is love?

True love is infinite, always there.

My parents tell me

I don’t know the meaning of love

They are wrong

When you love someone like I love him

It stays with you

I want to spend my life with him

But now there is a hole

Where my heart is supposed to be

I am willing to give him everything

But he has left me in the dark

I have lost my best friend

My love and my soul mate

Now I can no longer feel love

My heart is numb, like it is not there

It has left with him, a piece of me

So what is love, you ask?

Think of what it means to you

And then times it by ten thousand times three

I hope you like this. I am going through a rough times right now, and I really want to cry. The man I love most has moved away, and he never even told me. I didn't even get to say goodbye. *tear*

I did like this poem a great deal. I am sorry you are going through a rough time, but if he left without saying goodbye - good riddance. On the poem front, I think the depth of your emotions really comes through. As I said, an excellent poem.

Thanks. I just wanted to vent my feelings. I found out today that he left, so it was a big hit in the heart.
