Of Love and Fallacy

How do you define the idea of love?

By compassion and care

Truth lying bare

A singular affair

Or a burden to bear


How do you define the boundaries in love?

The masculine way

Or the feminine suffering

Of what you can do

And what I can’t


How do you define the notion of trust?

By what you want to share

And what you want to know

What can be veiled

And what, revealed


How do you define falling in love?

A wonderful emotion

A state of being

Or a forlorn notion

Miserable and mean


How can you define

Something beyond words

An explicable feeling

A mystifying emotion

A union of beings


How can you betray

The ones you’ve loved

The ones who’ve loved you

Yet talk about love

Like the better of beings
