Love, I do not know what you are

I let you come near again and again

but you always yank yourself away

I expose my heart to you

You take all the goodness

then you abandon me

Over and over this happens

no matter how I try to understand

the meaning of your name

I just wish you would not leave

this emptiness, so I could give

my heart to something other than

a thing called, Love
