What is it

Written by: niketa mckenzie

It is as dark as the darkest part of the world 
Both mysterious and dangerous 
It is brighter than any star in heaven
And can blind you to the truth 
When you have it in the palm of your hand 
It gives you the most joyous heart ache 
When you want it, it never heeds your command 
When you lose it you feel as if god himself is punishing you for having had it 
You may wonder what’s this pain that people so desire?
What’s this joy that they run as far as they can from? 
Why its love.
