love is

by Jamie C., 14

love is waiting for them to love you back.
love is moving on.
love is getting over it.
love is their eyes.
love is their passion.
love is their laugh.
love is them not loving you back?
but that’s not love.
they are supposed to be the ones always chasing after you.
not ignoring you.
you try to move on but you can’t.
you can’t get past the fact that you still love them
and you are just sitting here waiting for them to love you back.
you wait for months. they never come.
they never say I love you.
but you’ve said it a hundred times.
what is love to you?
