You want to know what love is,
You don’t care about if anybody thinks your too sappy
You don’t think twice about holding her hand, it’s already held
You look at her, she already knows what your thinking
You spend every waking minute... no this is wrong.
Love is pain, it’s hard, you are constantly working to continue to love her. 
It sucks, it hurts, every inch of you needs for it to work. 
Everyday is up then down,
Every problem is an issue,
Every solution is a problem.
You bring life into this world and hope they can be the fix. 
Hope they can find it for you, 
Live love through them.
Love is the last true farce, charade, deceit.
The final let down, the catch 22.
You want to know what love is, 
Well guess what, so does everybody else.
You want to know what I think it should be,
Easy.
What I want it to be, 
Endless.
You could die that moment, 
Happy.
Because of her, you had it.
Life wouldn’t matter as much.
Because you knew her, you loved her, she loved you.
So you want to know what love is,
A dream.
Wake up!

I love this because It makes women see that men can feel the same way about love as women do. Great Poem!

Thank you very much, haven't put anything new for awhile. Might have to start again, it's not as easy to write as it used to be.

Hi Danny, this is a real and striking poem mate.
Absolutely nails how it can feel being a man in a long and bitter-sweet relationship.I felt like this 24/7 for 20 years until I managed to somehow find a wormhole out of the cycle of thought I was in, looking in the wrong place for my answers.
Not saying I know 'the' answer mate, just one that saved my mind from meltdown!PS I've picked on you by looking for one or two other current contributors whose work I think I can relate to on first glance.
I haven't read loads of your stuff yet but I picked this at random and I felt like it was about me - always the sign of a great poem I reckon.'stiltskin

Love...it does bring us pain. Though, I'd say rejection is what really hurts. Love is an amazing feeling until the other person decides to say goodbye. :/ I, too, wish it was endless
Excellent poem! ^_^

A friend of mine provoked me to write a poem searching out my desire, and or what I thought love should be. This is the outcome.
