“Love… Hate”

Love… hate
I hate love
That’s what I feel!
Love is a sickness
A burning deep inside
From which you cannot escape
But you let it die
Love is hate
Hate is love
What is love?
A white turtle dove?
That is what stories tell us

We want to believe it
Reality is a fuss
Tender loving care

How sweet
What a snare
For when you’re caught
In a romance
The dragon’s lurking there
Takes it’s chance
Love breaks your heart
Love tears your soul apart
Into pitiful pieces
Served in a bowl
For every one to see
The hurt in your eyes
For every one to hear
Your sobs and goodbyes
Love… hate
Love… hate
The hate for love
Is all I feel!!

A drop in passion lost to the feel of expectations left on a platter older than the memory. Soul gives back and takes our hearts to view. Love stops only long enough to see hate then returns to hold us in the palm. Keep the words flowing and images growing.. Walt

Love can certainly make us sick in so many ways but I truly belive that if you ever loved someone and they depart from you for what-ever reason, the love does not leave it just re-adjusts to a place that we can survive. JMHO.

Love ya Girlie-Girl, Janny xoxoxo

Tinka, The many flavors of love must be tasted, even though some are sour. You'll never know the gourmet taste unless you keep on trying.

love and hate are the extremes of our emotion and arise from the same source ...

very moving poem, Tinka
Reviewed by Felix Perry
Love endures and enriches even with the pain it is always worth it tink, Hate just breeds bitternes, lonliness and sadness. Keep on loving even with the faults it is worth it.

Love truly is many things to many people, but sometimes it can be truly wonderful and sometimes its pain is unbearable - but we all keep on keepin on; what else can we do?

i'm not sure i know definately what love is, but i know what it is not and should not be and that is pain...that comes later, when its over :}
Reviewed by Brian Pellerino

My sweet friend... Love is all these things. It is the alpha and omega of our lives. It exists only because of us - through us. It has existed since the first human looked at another and knew they were alike. So much of what we do, we do in its name. It is hated because it feels so fulfilling and asks for nothing but vulnerability, for defying logic at every pass, and ultimately for creeping up on you without warning. It is the very ink that you use to write these passionate words...

Peace and LOVE,

"Love is a sickness." Sure does feel like it sometimes, but the good, true kind is a cure. Wonderfully emotive write, Tinks. ~~Nordette

Blessed are those that have not travelled this road and only know the ups and downs of love that do not lead to hate.

I posted a poem a while back, almost on the same page "Is It Love, Lust or Infatuation?" Yes, I'll also agree with Vesna, that's infatuation at its best! Love is patience, love is not pain.

God bless, Tinka ;-)

Great love lost write Tinka. You must have a couple of books on the topic. You probably could hang a shingle out;-)
