What Is Love?

what is love?
a waking dream
the kind that ends
in sweat and screams

what is love?
a freshly cut flower
doomed once bloomed
to wilt by the hour

what is love?
a wonderful drug
withdrawals from which
will turn your heart numb

what is love?
a memory—in time
precious and fleeing
difficult to define
