Love Hate


Published by Family Friend Poems March 2015 with permission of the Author.

Of all the emotions a person can feel,
Love is scariest and hardest to heal.
Excitement and mystery impossible to resist.
Promises of magic perpetually persist.
We long for a connection that is as strong as it is true,
But love always does as love wants to do,
So to the emotion of love, I just want to say,
I'm much better off without you; I'm glad you went away,
'Cause I'd much rather live with a heart that can sing,
A smile that struggles to be more than a grin.
I might not be happy, but at least I'm not sad,
Holding onto happiness that I never had,
Love's an impostor, a thief in the night,
Reduces flames to embers that no longer burn bright.
Love captains your emotions and steers your fate.
Love is the only emotion that I truly hate.
