Yet another new poem

This poem is in the form of a conversation between two people on the subject of love.  I hope you enjoy it.

The Paradox of Love
What is love?

Love is a gift that cannot be bought with money
All the more precious when freely given
All the sweeter when unconditionally shared.

But what is love?

Love possesses the strength of an unbreakable bond
Yet is possessed of the fragility of glass
If ill-handled by its bearer.

What is love?

Love is a feeling that can bring you great joy
Yet love can also be used as a weapon
That when wielded can bring you great pain.

So, what is love?

Love is a paradox, the eternal mystery
Felt and possessed, precious yet free
A bringer of joy and a weapon of pain
Strong yet fragile.

What is love?
Love is what makes the world a better place
Love is what makes life bearable
Yet all love is unrequited.
