What Love is

by Greg Beam   Apr 24, 2007


Love is kind, love is gentle, love is sweet,
Love isn't something that just lasts for a week.
Love is a feeling that should last forever,
Through thick and thin, and through whatever.
Love is faithful, love is true,
Loves not something to misuse.
Love is trusting, love is honest,
Loves not boasting, love is modest.
Love is patient, love will wait,
Love is awesome, love is great.
Loves not doubtful, loves not jealous,
Love can sometimes be rebellious.
I know now that love exists,
And this to me is what love is.

    Love is kind, love is gentle, love is sweet,
    Love isn't something that just lasts for a week.
    ^^ahh so so true i mean so many people are infactuated with someone or in lust NOT love i mean how can you honesty say you are in love after meeting someone for like an hour? it is ridiculous! This starting reminds me of the verses in the bible of 1 Corinthians 13 very very sweet words : )

    Love is a feeling that should last forever,
    Through thick and thin, and through whatever.
    ^^this makes me think of a innocent view on love like maybe what a child would say? ((i do not mean that in a bad way at all!!!!)) the words are simple though and it just sounds cute but sometimes simple is the best way to describe something because love should be able to withstand what ever is thrown at it! that's why love is a force greater than hate and stronger than jealousy

    Love is faithful, love is true,
    Loves not something to misuse.
    ^^ok i think that EVERY player needs to read this. ((i'm referring to mostly guy players)) The girls they are toying with may not be exactly i love with them but i bet the girls genuinely care and that is not something to just mess with and see how you can manipulate them i think that is just cruel...

    Love is trusting, love is honest,
    Loves not boasting, love is modest.
    ^^modest....i like that description i could also see the word humble there and it is true because sometimes in love if youre in a fight with the person you love and even if you are right but the other person doesn't agree...you just gotta shut your mouth and suck it up because it will help the relationship

    Love is patient, love will wait,
    Love is awesome, love is great.
    ^^tehehe yes it is!! i mean it's that floating on clouds, butterflies fluttering in your tummy, you can do anything in the world type of feeling when you are with the right person, they motivate you to be the best person you can be and do what makes you happy it is so amazing what a feeling can do to you it literally changes you

    Loves not doubtful, loves not jealous,
    Love can sometimes be rebellious.
    ^^here i think you need to change the "loves" to "love's" it just sort of caught my eye no biggy though!! jealousy...well a lot of relationships have jealousy problems and to me that is a sign of insecurity there is a point in the relationship where you are so comfortable and you TRULY trust the person where jealousy isn't even an issue with you and THAT is when you know you have a good relationship

    I know now that love exists,
    And this to me is what love is.
    ^^ i hope that whoever you wrote this to gets to read it because this would make any person blush : )

    You did a tremendous job here!!! you did a great job of exploring all aspects of love and i think you covered it all : ) I wouldn't change any words or anything because i think it is just phenomenal !! 5/5

    Hmm... This has potential, however it seems too similar to the scripture. Plus "Love is" doesnt flow well... if you look on the left margin, theres no pattern or reason for the placement. Love is Love is Love is Loves etc... no reason for each... I would suggest more lines which dont begin with "Love"... pehaps lines that arent directly from the verse? And maybe to diversify it from the scripture you will limit yourself how many words are placed i order in ur poem from orginal.. you know what i mean? maybe quote a line, explain, quote, justify, quote, elaborate. Get it? I ramble a bit, sorry.

    (: Love CAN be rebellious! That was my favorite line, made me giggle. This is a very sweet, very true kind of poem. It was fluid, heartfelt, and full of sincere meaning -- it really represented love in it's finest suit. Though this was written simply, it was not cliche, just adorable. One thing though:

    All of the `loves` should be `love's` with the apostrophe for it to mean, love is, instead of just plural loves. (: Otherwise, a great little piece. A pleasure to read, keep it up!
