what is love (senryu)

by Darren   May 16, 2018

A moment arrived
reflecting on emptiness
love found me in you

**A senryu, written as a compressed version of this

How do you know........the moment is here
Is it the longing, yearning....or the anger when torn apart
a minute alone a lifetime wasted, does hearing her name excite you
sharing a moment, knowing it was golden, or crying in her arms feeling sad
dare you imagine a life without her, soldiering on as a distraught singleton
Is it those moments during daydreams when you forget her face, her smile
Or the times you cannot sleep, because you haven't shared a laugh today
I have felt hunger from the bottom of my stomach that eats from inside
Her voice sounds like a ballad of hope, her touch shudders your soul
Concentration long since departed, left you to lingering thoughts
Only her image her aura, being have found a place in your mind
Your beating heart races wildly when she calls your name,
world around slows down when she kisses your lips
nothing in life matters, she says she loves you
you wonder, could she really be the one
is this what love is, could be
desire, hope, belief
I should know
It found me
In you
