four letters

You don’t know what it means

It’s just something you heard

Four letters put together

It’s simply a word

it starts with an L

It end with an E

Its what I thought

Drew you to me

Turns out that this word

These 4 letters in a row

Have many definitions

It Depends on the soul

Each heart holds a meaning

They aren’t always the same

For some it’s forever

For some it just games

Control and excitement

One could never do

No one person can fulfill

The emptiness in you

Rare moments of bliss

A few memories of pure

But real cant touch this

mysterious allure

Of someone new

The reasons unclear

How the new conquest challenges

What we built all those years

So save using that word

For things trivial and jest

Don’t say it while holding

Your hand to your chest

Use it to describe a favorite meal

Or a place

A movie or song

That brings a smile to your face

But please don’t use it When you are thinking of me

Lets not make this thing harder than it has to be

Because we’ve misused this word and our definitions dont match

Yours was in the moment

mine was hoping to last
