Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don't know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings.


Do not take my smile away
with your animosity
towards all things beautiful
Do not replace my smile
with a frown when
you belittle me
to the point of irritation.
You wish to instigate
a war between
my happiness and
your misery
but it is a
war I
cannot
bear for
you
to
win...

Those who start wars, never fight them
And those who fight wars, they never like them
And those who write laws, can recite them
And those who fight laws, they live and die by them

Do we eat to live or live to eat?

After feeling a tad guilty for being rude about an old story of yours, I decided to read more of your work. And I wasn't disappointed. :) Especially after reading this poem of yours. Not only is it beautiful like the others mentioned, but it's also very easy to relate to.

Good job & Keep Writing,
