    Could be written by most with a pen in hand - didn't tax his brain with this one. (Report) Reply

    I love the work of the Liverpool poets, many years ago at school I read all of their work, there are good anthologies,
    try the one from Penguin.. (Report) Reply

    I love the climax... I mean this poem doesn't have a proper climax. It is left on a very uncertain note. But that's the beauty of it: D Amazing work (Report) Reply

    Love is Adrian Henri, left undone, for the rest of us, to be made into fun.

    so many of us tried to define love
    and if i read them all i would be
    100 years before i even have half. (Report) Reply

    Love is what happens when the music stops....what happens! Perhaps from where the silence begins....Is that love! What an offbeat idea! ..... (Report) Reply

    'Love's what's there when you are away from me' True lines, never read anything describing love in so a practical way.10/10 (Report) Reply

    These lines are so simple yet so true that everybody in love experiences..Love is all we need :) (Report) Reply

    The part i like most, and that i find most true:
    'love is a prison, love is free'
    This one line alone describes exactly what i define to be love.
    Well done on a poem composed from the heart! (Report) Reply

    Love is what happens when the music stops
    that is a good line. good job. love is everything you said I think, but really I dont know I have not found him.

    I Love this poem - sure its not going to be to everyones tatse but sometimes you can make things too complicated and this for me says it all. (Report) Reply

    interesting, most definitely, interesting....

    the way love is shown is close to many but not to all so im not sure if this poem can reach to all levels, however it is very well structured and aimed at that physical aspect of love.... (Report) Reply

    'Love is feeling cold in the back of vans' I agree there! lol... I love your explanation of love.. but it's more than physical (Report) Reply
