To love or Not to Love

December 20, 2011
Not to love you
is my passion.
To love you
is my curse.
Either way
it doesn't matter
as long as
you're happy.
If i love you not
I would cry for ages
Leaving my broken heart
to writhe in pain
until the end of time.
If i love you
my heart will remain
stuck in overdrive
until I run out of gas
and find myself
spitting and sputtering
on the edge of a desolate road.
So, question being,
to love or not to love?

This is really good! I like the imagery you used, and I thought that the ending was especially powerful. :) I love the idea of a heart 'running out of gas'. Great work!

Ah, I am jealous. I've wanted to write a poem like this for so long, but never had the creative juices for it, like how you obviously do. Perfectly written. I do not see how this could get any better. Love to hate, but hate to love. It is all bittersweet, and I love it. Bravo

Well done! I love your direct but eloquent style. Reminds me of...well, just listening to someone talk. 

BTW I just got another few poems uploaded...would you mind checking out one of them, preferably the one called "Snap"? I would greatly appreciate it.
