What is Love, What it’s not— A Poem to explore the true meaning of Love

What is love, and what it’s not,

Love is a feeling, a difficult one, to explain,


Love can be felt, through eyes, through touch,

Love can be felt, through heart, through soul,


Love can be selfless, it can also be selfish,

Love is possessive, it is also sacrificial,


Love is pure, unconditional, it can also be conditional,

Love can limit you, it can be infinite too,


Love means mutual admiration, and respect,

Love can liberate you, but it also binds,


Love means desires, but it also means sacrifice,

Love can make you strong, it can also weaken you,


Love doesn’t need you to be near,

Love can be felt from a distance too,


Love doesn’t mind imperfections,

Love is itself complete, and wholesome.

Chitrangada Sharan


Love can’t be defined, It can be felt.

Love can’t be defined, It can be felt.
