What’s Love

What does
the word love mean?
I thought I knew once,
but I’ve long since forgot.
I could’ve sworn I felt it too,
just like others say they do,
but now I’m not so sure.
I think that I
may’ve had it wrong from the start.
They tell me it’s
what mommys and daddys do
when they have a kid,
but that can’t be right…
or is love supposed to hurt?
Every time
they look my way
their faces scrunch up in pain.
When they can’t take anymore
the words fly
and then come the fists.
They seem more hurt than me,
because I may scream,
but it’s from their faces
that the tears always fall.
Maybe I’m just broken
so it comes out wrong
or maybe that’s not love at all.
What does
the word love mean?
I thought I knew once,
I’ve long since forgot.
