the palm of your hand.

A different type of love poem.
What is love
This I do not know
I’ve asked many and still do not know
They say you know when you are in love
I’ve written about it yet I haven’t experienced it
All the text I’ve read and written are blasphemy
They say love conquers all
But logically love makes no sense
You make irrational decisions
Put others before yourself
Just to end up getting hurt
When I was a child I knew love
That knowledge was lost through the ages
As more time passes love is nothing more than a dream
Something I only see in my sleep and gone when I wake
No matter how hard I try the door to the heart is closed
The concept is simple but I cannot recreate it
I search for it but it alludes me
Thought I caught it once but it was a farce
Drew a heart but it cracked
Took a chance and lost
Is love not for all
Or am I the exception
I pose this one question for all to hear
What is LOVE?
