What is This Thing Called Love


What is this thing called love


That rips and tears at my heart?


Knowing how much love hurts me,


Why did I allow love to start?




Yet what is loneliness but a need for love


A void that cries to be filled?


An absence of love that teases in dreams


A restlessness that longs to be stilled?




Why do I have tears late at night


Endlessly flowing down my cheeks?


Is it because I’m desperate for love


And for the companionship my heart seeks?




When will romance come my way


Giving me a brand new start?


I don’t want to see a barren world


With no connections to my heart.




How do I find the one for me


Who waits for a heart like mine?


Where will I discover what is true


And find that new love divine?




I’ll wait and hope for ages yet,


I know she is somewhere near.


Soon she’ll be within my arms


Where I keep things I hold dear.




What is this thing called love?


No answer will suffice.


For it seems to be a combination


Of flames, sacrifice, and ice.
