What’s Love Got To Do With It

It was a love
That was magical
It went beyond fantasies
And lustful desires

It was a love 
That was unexplainable 
It went beyond feeling
And unselfishly giving

It was a love
That wasn’t ordinary
It went beyond hurting
And unequivocally abasing

It was a love
That caused pain and despair
It went beyond heartbreak 
And too many tears

It was a love 
That was unfathomable
It went beyond distrust
And continuous berating 

It was a love 
That was controlling
It went beyond danger
And persistent fear

It was a love
That was depressing 
It went beyond being unpredictable 
And considering surrender 

It wasn’t love
It was hostility
It went beyond everything
And led to death
