Four letter word

Love is a drug, an addiction,
To hold another, to feel its friction
Love affects all, rich or poor
A beautiful disease without a cure.

Love has no eyes, only a heart,
To wound us with Cupid’s darts
Showing itself in different disguises
Giving us hope & many surprises.

Love can be hell, love can be heaven
Use it wisely & not as a weapon,
It can be here today & gone tomorrow
It follows you around like a shadow.

Sharing it freely would be tragic
Love is the closest thing to magic
Cast your spell, speak with feeling
Love can heal, & give us meaning.

    You could argue it’s an entirely subjective and ephemeral experience and thus has many eyes and no heart 😉
    I don’t like that thought though! I like your definition much better!

    Being in love is being in a state of higher being. Let love flow through you freely, embrace love for all and in time you will find that magical person who makes you fantasy real and your life complete x

    Love is the most potent drug of em all. Coz love can be positive and negative at the same time. Love hurts, love gives. If he died loving us, why cant we love like him. Then yes it is much more than a drug, hmmm
