Is It Love?

Is it love or simply sickness?

Piece of mind or pain of heart?

Hitting walls to test their thickness

While she tears my world apart

Is it love or just a feeling

Hard to breathe but hard to go

Every hope Ive tried concealing

Found my eyes are quick to show

Is it love or am I lonely?

Do I want her more than need?

Could she be my one and only?

Or are these the signs of greed?

Is it love or can I change it?

Make my heart to match my mind

Close my eyes and rearrange it

Wake to hate the love I find

Is it love or does it matter?

Is it wrong or semi-right?

Fill my mind with pointless chatter

Dream about her every night

Is it love or have I lost it?

Let my blindness be my guide

Any sense I had, I tossed it

Nothing gained if nothing tried(?)

Is it love or merely madness?

Scared to think I might be wrong

Somewhere safe to cease my sadness

Where my hearts been all along

Is it love or something seamless?

Need to hold what I hold dear

Is she real or did I dream this?

Should I fight to keep her here?

Is it love or just pretending?

Fun for now but not for sure

How Id love a happy ending

How Id love to try with her
Author's Notes:
Love, I've found, is pretty much a "crapshot" (as is this poem, without the "shot" part ;) lol). I almost edited and/or rearranged it but I discovered that matters such as love aren't done justice on the editting desk ;) .....but don't let that stop you from editorializing ;) lol

Don't waste all that emotional energy thinking Jake...just feel it and go with it!

"How Id love a happy ending
How Id love to try with her" do I love happy endings and my advice to you is...if you have deliberated this much, then it is more than sickness, madness, loneliness, something seamless or IS something worth trying for. Of course is this is just you writing another stirring poem...then I'll slink away and feel totally stupid...but this would be my advice if this was an actual situation!! =))

I always enjoy the heartfelt expression in each of your posts.

High five cowboy!! *SMACK*

Yep Jake, a crap shoot pretty much describes the human condition. Aren't you glad I stopped by to cheer you up? LOL It's either love or indigestion. I say take a couple of Rolaids and if it doesn't go away then it must be love! Savanah..soooo very glad me and my pirate are way past this point in our lives. You have my sympathy, sugar - Savanah

Nothing you write needs to be rewritten ever! You have magical fingers, the most tender of hearts, and the deepest of souls.
