Leaves of Lines [Poetry collection]

A compilation of my poetry ranging across the board. [I'm not depressed, by the way] So far, these are all published as separate movellas, so you can either comment here on the whole, or if you want to leave comments on a specific poem, feel free to find that one in my list. Either way is fine with me! Photo cred: https://www.flickr.com/photos/109065142@N02/sets


41. Feelings (Not-Recommended)

I used to think love was a weakness. 

It was a devastating curse

Which infected everyone I knew, 

And turned them pining, sad, 



And then I thought it was fate. 

It was an inevitable trial,

That some could survive, 

Some could fight, 

But few would win. 


For a time, love was strength. 

It was the source of energy, 

The breeze in the heat, 

Or the charm of the night, 

Something beautiful. 


But then, love turned bitter. 

It was laced with hatred, 

Pierced by jealousy 

And cries of the heart,  

Poisoned tears.


But now I see that love is torture. 

It’s the weakness that saps strength, 

The fate that you can’t escape, 

The bitter pain tainting the words, 

“I love you.”


And the worst part is, despite it all,

That I do.
