"Love is a poison, but it is also the antidote."


To feel love
Is more than simply to desire
It is to desperately need
Once the eye has caught the beauty
In which is contained that of first love
You may deny it
Til’ your death bed drowns you
In its endless slumber of unconsciousness
But the feeling shall forever remain
Burning so brightly
As only love always does
Eternally inside you
Let me experience it ever more
Than have it sucked from my chest
I beg of you
Not to stab at my scars
Or unwind
The stitches so hastily fixed upon my wounds
Ever so delicately take my hand
Just as you have done my heart
If love engulfs me in insanity
Then so be it
I am insane

Interesting poem, it reminds me of Poe, in some ways. I like it!

Why in the fudge does this not have like a bajillion comments?

Seriously , this was an amazing poem.I loved it so much!

Your free verse was very well done and your eloquent words made the poem better than it already was. Keep it up , because whatever your doing , it's working!
