what is love

I ask myself what love is, never 
seem to find an answer
Was plato right to say that love is a 
disease like cancer
Is love a myth, an emotion we make 
ourselves feel to fill a void
Or is it stored in us and we choose 
on who we deploy
Perhaps I am just  a cynic and 
pessimistic
Thou could it be that I am simply 
realistic
Consequently my opinions dont 
mirror that of my peers
Even thou we're not differed by 
years
I dont amplify everything that i hear
Nor can I imagine ever sheding a 
tear
At least not for now, but my future 
still unfolds
And I admit my way of thinking has 
froze me cold
Regardless of that, I refuse to play a 
role
In letting the words I love you 
become a cliché
Not everyone means what they say
For that is what i believe
So in conversation I retrieve what I 
conceive because I am not naive
Not enough to believe that most 
people listen to reason
At the end of the day, who in your 
life is truly worth pleasing?
