Love by Adam Levon Brown

Love is that little feeling you get when you feel complete.

When you feel like everything is going to be alright.

It is the reason you cry, and the reason you die

It is the reason you thrive, and the reason you strive

Love is sharper than a blade and softer than a feather

It can cut you and simultaneously bring you to ecstasy


Love can make a person and break them.

Love is a passion that burns so brightly

that it even makes the sun jealous.


Love is all powerful;

That even the Gods themselves bow to it

Love is the envy of angels and the tool of demons



Slave of none,

Master of all who feel its touch

The bane of apathy,

and the healer of wounds



One word holding so much meaning

That no poet could ever truly define

Its paradoxical enigma.
