What is Love? A Poem Written by Samantha James

This is a poem I wrote and really hope everyone enjoys reading. It is suppose to be light and pondering. I also wanted to express that love is anything and everything. That is comes in all forms, sizes, shapes, and ways. You just have to look …


What is love you say?

Do not ask me

Does it brighten your day?

Well it could be

What is love you inquire?

Do not ask me

Does it have the chance to inspire?

Well it could be

Can it turn the world on fire ?

Can it cut you down deeply ?

  Can it make you desire ?

Can it be sneaky ?

Well it could be

Love is nothing

Love is something

What is love?

Do not ask me

I am just a fool

Love is not reality

Love has no rule

(please do not forget to comment with your thoughts! )

    love is two feet
    going three directions
    a brain
    on mute

  2. One of the children’s authors I know writes about love as “the Fuzzy Fella” who leaves tickles in your belly and makes your feet feel like jelly – quite an elusive fellow who could leave you feeling yellow or sometimes, preferably mellow . . .

    I thought this poem, pondering the essence of love, written by Samantha James might be something to ponder about when you’re sipping your favourite Saturday afternoon drink.

  6. Hi, Samantha. I think your poem is really the outline for an extended poem. You introduce several thoughts which need to be elaborated upon. Such as you assert “love is nothing” How is it nothing?
    “Love is something” How is it something? “I am just a fool” How are you a fool? Give us concrete examples. And of course “love is not reality” If love is not reality, we are all in big, big trouble, all headed for an Exhistential meltdown, and Nihilism will seize the day. Ouch, that hurts just thinking about it.

    What is love? – the eternal question. Do you know Blake’s poem, The clod and the pebble? Your poem made me think of it.
