What is love

What is love but a state of mind,
 a wish the heart makes?
Why is that  in a moment of time,
 a person's heart can break,
A passion like no other,
 a pain deeper then the ocean,
A feeling that takes another,
 to embrace such an emotion,

What is love but a false promise
 a painful demise?
In a blink of the eye,
 we fall into its disguise
Heartbroken and alone
 we all seek what the heart desires,
we seek a true love
and spark to light the soul’s fire,
