Today’s poem is about Love, it  dark and  bright sides. What’s  more it is  a new one !!

What  is  Love ?
Love hurts it makes you bleed

It is cruel and on your soul it will feed.

Love whispers poison in your ears

Hurting your feelings, feeding your fears.

Love smothers and strangles

Sucking out all the good

Like ivy wrapping you up in  tangles.

You can’t sleep, you can’t eat food.

Love is a sunny day full of flowers

Spent gazing into those eyes for hours.

A kiss on the neck a brush of the hand

Under blue skies ain’t love grand.


Love a promise a thousand times I do

A rainbow of ribbons edged in lace

A reason to greet each morning anew

It is the look on the your lovers face.


Love is everything and nothing  too

Love is different for me than it is for you

At it’s best it is hotter  than the sun

At it’s worst you wish you’d never begun

Love is the best love is worst

Love in your heart, love on your sleeve

Love is an illness love is curse

Love is fleeting,nor yet will not leave.
