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.
