What is Love ~ Poem

A life 
In which she is scared to love
To be loved
For she does not know
What love really is.

Is love sex
Is it lust

Passion and pain
for her
One and the same

The mundane
The day to day
The minutiae...
Is that love?

Afraid of allowing herself to be loved
Her imperfect self
Her completely human self

Afraid to give up autonomy
To be one part
Of another

"No Man is an Island"
Yet she keeps 
Surrounding herself with walls
Alone, Protected
Yet the desire for connection calls
