What is love?

An emotion?

A dream?

A prayer?

A game?

Is it truly as fickle as society tells us,

To start in an instant

And fade away in time?

Or is it as true as legend claims:

The undying faith and loyalty

Which bind us all together.

Sometimes I wonder

What would happen

If I just reached out,

Reached through the walls of pain and fear,

Reached beyond the safety of my sanctuary,

And pulled you close.


I would find love.


I would get hurt.


I would be happy.

And maybe…

Maybe I would know the truth at last.
