About the Poem

Love is not just a word. If the expression of love is not there in all its expressed senses, then it is not what Love should be.

What Good Is Love

I waited for your love in hope,
That ours would come again,
And make me feel the things I felt,
When we were one, back then.

But time and distance have erased,
The things I wished anew,
And now I find myself alone,
Though I am here with you.

What good is love, that does not touch,
What good is love, that gives you pain.
What good is love, that makes you run,
And makes you lost out in the rain.

I traveled to another world,
Out far beyond the one we knew,
I thought that I could live again,
And now I find I'm back with you.

But what of hearts that beat as one,
And what of passion and embrace,
Is it too much to ask of you,
To make these tears of mine erase.

What good is love, that does not touch,
What good is love, that gives you pain.
What good is love, that makes you run,
And makes you lost out in the rain.

Too painful this - to journey back,
To times of love and laughter free,
The times we lay together with
A sense of you , a sense of me.

So now, I journey on alone,
Forever wandering, in my thoughts,
And I shall ask you once again,
What good is love.

QUANTAE
I THINK THIS POEM HAS ALOT OF POTENTIAL BECAUSE IT REALLY SUPPORTS THE FACT THAT THIS PERSON HAS BEEN HURT BEFORE AND THE MEANING IS SO TOUCHFUL B/C NO-ONE HAS TO HAVE LOVE IN LIFE TO SURVIVE. AS LONG AS U HAVE LOVE FOR YOURSELF THEN IT REALLY SHOULDNT MATTER
karla

This is a great poem. i salute you for expressing your bstract mind into simple words. i to write poems but with huge words and old english. you know what all of us may think that nobody knows what we feel, what we are going through but thats not always true. i thought that to myself and read your poem and changed in point of view. i have gone through those feelings in your poem, and written poems expressing my own feelings such as these

that poem was very genuin and passionate. I like it very much
Debbie
Kudos to the artist of this poem. You have taken a situation that I know all too well, which is often very hard to put into words, and given those words life. I enjoyed it very much for the voice it gives to the many of us stuck in such a relationship. I usually don't go so much for rhymed and metered poetry, but your's came together very well, comfortable and uncontrived.
cristina

This poem really touched me it is so true and good you have such great talent
Joyce
I felt you really reached deep down inside my being and found my inter soul. I live this everyday of my life. I am glad there is someone else besides me out there that knows and understands what I am feeling. I have 2 children and stay here for them and that leaves me so empty and lonely deep inside. They are my life and always will be. But one day I know I will awake when they are grown and gone I will be so all alone.
amanda
