What Is There In A Love Song?

What is there in a love song?
Words on a blank page
Dots in some fine order
Bounded by a boundless cage

What is there in a love song?
Just one like the other
One speaks of warm romance
Passion and lust in another

What is there in a love song?
They sound the same to me
Retold with a narrative
In sugar-sweet allegory

What is there in a love song?
A hundred I can write
Yet not have anything at all
For my little heart’s delight

What is there in a love song?
Not a thing it does reveal
My heart’s sensitivity
How badly it fails to steal

What is there in a love song?
That which I cannot see
If you want to know my heart
Just come around and sit with me
