if not love then what?

if it’s not love then what value is it to me?

don’t suck me back in to a world of fear and hate
i left the gates
of that prison
many years ago
and have no wish to return

if you want to leave that world
i am here
but you have to walk outside
the foreboding walls
and dark stench
the terrified stares
and the taunting calls

but don’t try and get me back
in that nightmare world.

my friend,
once you have tasted the sweet nectar
of love’s freedom
you will never want to return
to that prison.
