Lizk8 welcome to ww.

Last line of second stanza didn't match.
loves not bought.

Same with last stanza

Loves not cheap.

You could have added more.

Love is a wonderous thing
love is a feeling
love is a one-ness
Love is two hearts pounding.

I could go on.

For your first attempt you did great.

I liked your approach and the way you put the words down.

Well done, I think I will read more of the work your holding back.

well done.

It is very difficult writing a "love is ..." poem without reminding the reader of [probably] the greatest definition of all time, in the Bible [I Corinthians 13].

Glad to see you included "love is hate". Many regard this as an oxymoron [a seeming contradiction, like "bittersweet"] but the true opposite of love is not hate but self-seeking. If we all realised that, the world would be a better place, one where we would be unafraid to hate the evils that plague us. Love takes us out of our selfishness; it makes us care; it makes us fight all that would harm what we love; it ... dare I say ... it makes us fully alive, hence it is now - and ever will be - a spur to poetic outburst.

I am not going to offer any deep criticism, for you are at the outset of a journey and will develop your skills as you go along. Keep hold of that flame within.
