What Is Love? This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   In the Beginning

too young to get married

wanting to prove everyone wrong

LOVE

that is what you called it;

a Love like no other.



Soon, a little girl arrives,

and another,

another,

and wait, one more.



Fighting begins

screaming, hitting, lying

sneaking, and

cheating.



Papers are drawn

"till death do us part"

vanishes

and a broken home appears.



Parents moving on,

meeting and enjoying

new people, but

no longer themselves.



The girls are the shadows.

No longer loved, now

only lost.

A memory of what is now lost.



Marriage again?

Wasn't love already found?

Confused, betrayed, LOST!

All the girls have now

is

each other.



The Beginning, the End

and still we wonder,

"What is Love?"

This poem is really amazing and I just adore it. I hope the two girls in your story aren't you and your sister. You touched based on a lot of things. Just very awesome. Continue the excellent work
