Love Isn't

I know I'm awake
I know how to open my eyes
But i don't know why i can't see

I feel time moves on
I hear the clock ticking
But I never felt time stops

I've seen the burning sun
stung by the burning cold
But never faced a tornado

Touched many colors
never seen a rainbow

seen the Nile
crossed the seas
But never been under a waterfall

Read the book many times
never turned over the page

Walked in many directions
never tried falling down

Never had to think of what I didn't
Never tried to change what I wasn't

Now you know all the symptoms
Now you know what love ISN'T.

    Whoa Mostafa! This is superbly done! Many have written about what love is - your take on what it isn't is very refreshing. You've captured the images very well and your tone and rhythm make the poem a pleasure to read. Definitely keep on writing.

    So many things are hidden which can only be discovered through love. You present cleverly what could happen when one lacks the courage to love. Welcome, Mostafa! David
