Theme III: Classwork; “What is Love”

By Jennifer Levine

What is love?

A teenager’s angsty ode to young love 

Is love the ability to ignore the wishes of your family

Take the risk only to be banished,

Plunging the dagger in your chest cavity.

 

Is love the snake with blond hair

Who offers you bliss from reality

All wrapped in a cozy needle.

 

Will love hoist you in the rain, embrace you with a loving kiss

And stay around until the amnesia kicks in,

Until you take your final breath.

 

Once you have given everything to love

Will love’s talons gorge your eyes

Leaving you blind to the truth that love doesn’t exist.
