    What is love? Can I hold it in my hand like a tin can?
    What is love? Is it able to be posessed by any man?
    What is love? Can it grow like a tree but never die?
    What is love? When you spit in your lovers eye?
    What is love? As you have sex with another guy.
    What is love? When you`ve burned all my french fries.
    What is love? While your smoking crack away from prying eyes.
    What is love? When it all of a sudden dies!
    What is love? My Oh My!!!!
    What is love? But, something in someones mind.

    What is Love, but a word or expectation....Or just an excuse to make another mortal creation. Or is it but the deepest expression used in the most shallow ways. That when said often leaves your eyesight hazed. But what is love one of the deepest emotions....filled with compassion, tenderness and true devotion. And is it love that leaves a pure heart slain..or is it the side effects of unseen pain................
    Hey, Im sorry I changed the format of the poem but I was just writing from the heart. Anyway your poem is so short yet straight to the point....and so outspoken yet perfect imagery of the mind. Just like $RICH$ said... " Its a tyte flow on what is!"
