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.

This poem originally was published in Sad Poems

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.

    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

    every man I have ever been with has left me for another girl. I thought I was over it when I met him, but he did the same thing. WHAT GOOD IS LOVE??? it is no good I have been burned for the last time!
