What is this love
That I leave behind
How can I turn
From the tears in your eyes
What is this world
Where we always pretend
That it is worth it
Worth it in the end
What is this life we share
That I just throw away
Is this love
That causes so much pain
What is the promise
That I leave behind
Why can't I
Just lie beside you again
What's goin' on
How'd it get so wrong
What is this dream
That I'll never find
What is this prayer
That's stealing my mind
What is this deal
That I've just made with fate
And I wonder
If I have left it too late

    This song created a hurricane of emotion in my soul. I recently left a relationship that was long and difficult. Yet even still more difficult to leave. The pain in the decision making time was almost unbearable while confusion plagued every moment awake and asleep. Visions of the persons face haunt my mind eternally. Harder still is after making the decision, knowing you are making the correct choice, doubt sneaks in from time to time. What is this, what if., what did I do. How do I move forward from here. What is this love. What is love? Will love ever exist in my life? Was that all there is.
