What is love?

Tell me what is it like
Love? I’ve never been there
How does it make you feel?
Is it like spring, like cherry blossoms?
Or the warm summer wind
Soothing, like the shade of the enormous trees
Or slightly sweet and sour like the taste of the tamarind
What makes your heart skip a beat?
What makes your soul feel at ease?
This love you say is enchanting,
Is it a spell someone casted?
Why you care so much? Why you feel so delighted?
I envy you cause you’re drowned in the spectrum of love
As for me, I’m blind
To perceive the world in contrast of black and grey
As this heart is frozen for decades,
Encrypted and more twisted in different ways
What makes you so chirpy?
Is this love that keeps you holding?
How does one finds it?
I heard it changes you, it gives you meaning
Does it happen to the person who is broken?
What about those who’ve gone too far
Or those who’ve last everything
Will they ever return from this shallow dark?
This love you say is empowering
Powerful enough to uplift you and make you stronger
It is like the ethereal colors are magnificently poured
And portrayed on the plain white canvas
What’s the beauty of this feeling?
Why people try to clench
Even when if it is a little ray of hope
Why love is so warm and compassionate
Over the emotions of hate, betrayal and sorrow
So tell me, Is love enough to domineer the storms of despair,
Enough to break the chains of pessimism
Enough to draw my insecurities away
Or is it just a mere fantasy of one day
