"Deep into that darkness peering
Long I stood there
Wondering, fearing, doubting
Dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before"
-Edgar Allen Poe

Tell me what is this thing you call love

That you keep talking about

Is a great big elegant dove

Or is it the pink of a mouth

Tell me where can this love be found

And tell me how does it cost

Is it somewhere in a store that's around

Is it something that can be bought

Tell me is this love you say

As beautiful as you percieve

Or is it a game of child's play

As real as it may seem

Finally, tell me can this love be lost

Or is it something that will stay

Is it something that can be tossed

Or become a needle in hay

Tell me tell me tell me, my dear

What is this word love you keep bringing about

For so weary have grown my ears

To the lies of a counterfeit heart
