Then it’s love by Dike Chukwumerije

If it makes you cry like it’s the end of the world
Then laugh like it’s just beginning
Then it’s love.

If your heart beats as furiously in fear
As it does in desire
In worry, as it does in anticipation of tonight
If you despair as desperately as you rejoice
And are as deeply wounded by neglect
As you are tickled by attention
If you are affected, always affected
Always unable to not be affected
Then it’s love.

If it makes you want to die, when it hurts
If it makes you want to live forever
Then it’s love.
