The Meaning of Love? This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


More by this author
The beating of my broken heart, now chained and locked away,
I hear much louder, through the night, than words we never say.
As hollow kisses turn to dust and fall against my skin,
I pray that I might find the strength to fall in love again.
Abandoned innocence, stripped away, discarded on the floor.
In the dirt, I bury hope that love leaves unlocked doors.
I am held, though never cherished, yet to be made whole.
My tears can wipe themselves away, but I must save my soul.
Bare feet, run, lead me home, where I am Mother’s child,
And toward the pale rose sunset for a pretty little while.
If broken wings may carry dreams, and carry me to sleep,
Take me far away from love and tell me what it means.

Love is not blind. Some people become blinded with it.

No offence.

your right... i guess i was just trying to say that what some  people think is love is just a physical atraction or an emotional refuge... true love is not blind. then again, true love is seldom found

yes true love is seldome found. but what happens when people find true love is that they don't see it therefor  true love often becomes unnoticed.

you only see it when it's too late
