Paper Hearts &Plastic Pins: Love Is...


Love Is by Muyiwa Oyinloye 

Love is
A reaction of positives and negatives
Caught in a whirlwind of indecisives
I don't know what love is

Love is
A hook dangling bait
Promising much but offering dead weight
I don't know what love is

Love is
Not all it's made out to be
But it makes room for you and me
Does it? I don't know.. Does it?

Does it
Last a lifetime like dulled out pain?
Not quite in your consciousness but never wanes?
I don't know.. Does it?

Does it
Last a short while but shines bright?
More a firecracker than candlelight
I don't know what love is

Does it
Break your heart and wake your soul
Or dull your soul and leave you whole
I don't know what love is.
