A Blue Look At Love

PAD Challenge day 25: The final two-for-Tuesday prompt in April @Poetics Aside poem-a-day challenge is always: 
Write a love poem. Write an anti-love poem

Sometimes I hate you, Love
The way you leave me blue
And render me inept to prove
The magnitude of you

The greatest joy of you
Prepares my deepest woe
And sometimes I am torn in two
Betwixt your high and low

Sometimes I hate your touch
A knife with double-edge
I never did care for pain much
But without it 
You're dead

  1. This does leave one wondering. But between the poetic style and the feelings aroused, Great Job.

    1. Perhaps it is confusing; simply put... as long as love is alive, sometimes it causes us pain. if it does not, it is dead.


Thank you for your visit to this porch. I'd love to hear if or how this post/poem touched you!
