what love is


Hole in my heart
Ache in my mind
Longing
Needing
Missing
That is what love is

A gap in the wall
A blank on a page
Hurting
Aching
Bleeding
That is what love is

And yet you make that long walk
East to west
To face the face that holds your heart

Because you know that every star
In the sky
Cannot compare to the jewel of her eyes

And you must take each breath anew
In her sight
Because she steals the words from you

Words too soon to be spoken
In fear of two lives broken
Or the dice tossed on chance

Hand on my heart
Prayer on my tongue
Living
Loving
Dying
To find out what love is
