Is Love Enough?

Love is enough, right?
I asked the Oracle, all knowing
To fill the void
And give purpose to our meaningless days
And our lonely nights?

No, said the Oracle, infinitely wise
Love is not your cure
A life of
Suffering is not salvaged
By one mere act

But they told me that Love
Is the only thing to make me
Whole, Said I
So, O Oracle, towering high
Tell me why there's sleepless nights

Love will never fill the spaces
That were once filled with laughs
Or make you
Complete, so you should Love for
Love's sake only
