Whatever that means

How do you define it, in feelings, thoughts or deeds?
Will you recognise it when the early seeds
Are planted, and your world begins to change
This powerful disorder that can leave you feeling strange
Incongruent emotions, your mind a tangled mess
And patterns of behaviour range from reserved to excess
A rush of pure adrenaline, a stab of searing pain
It will take you to the heavens, crash you back to earth again
And yet you seem conditioned to seek the force unseen
To hear the words “I love you,” whatever it is that means.

Author’s notes

Love – unfathomable, indefinable, incongruent?
This poem is a tongue in cheek commentary about love, after hearing the words “I love you…whatever that means.”

Let’s

Let’s not look at our past with anger and regret

Because you and I shared something incredibly special

Let’s acknowledge our mistakes and accept our challenges

We can learn from them and become stronger together as a consequence

Let’s appreciate we are different people from when we met

Stronger for our time together and wiser for our time apart

Let’s use this deep understanding of each other

To sort out our differences and connect more fully than ever

Let’s stop playing games with each other’s feelings

Our relationship was originally based on truth

Let’s just take this relationship and make it work

Through communication, honesty, trust and love
