What is love

Looking I see that maybe you weren’t such a good idea, in theory yes, but in reality no.
Can u commit to me?
Am I good enough for you?
Or am I meant to be alone…
I feel it deep in my bones this aching need to be better but failing everyone even you.
So maybe I’m not your girl
So maybe you can just use me like gum then throw me out when you’re done.
Truthfully ill take whatever you give but secretly want more.
Secrets, do you have some because I know I sure do.
Would you look at me the same if you knew mine?
Would you at least still fake your love like I fake my smile? 

I like the way you hold me, the way you kiss me, the way you touch me.
But are we real?
Will we ever be? 
Or do I only have these few minutes to try and hold forever ?
What is love if you cannot name it?
What is lust if you cannot name it?
