Love is not what
makes the world go round.
Love is what makes the world stop
just for a moment
and watch
and sigh sweetly.

Love is not what
makes the world go round.
But it can send you across the
world in an instant
if simply just
to keep the feelings close.

Love is not what
makes the world go round.
How could it be?
No, love is not what
makes the world go round
else we'd spin with some crazed fervor
and never stop.

I liked it. It's good. I think the last stanza may need a little tweaking just to make it sound better. But I love the idea of it, so don't change  it (if you even do) very much. Thanks for checking out my stuff!
