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 for "mi amor". The one person who can crush my world and built it all in the same breath. Believe it or not, I chose to love. Not sure if it was the right decision or not yet...but hey what happens, happens right?

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

"It's a saying they have, that a man has a false heart in his mouth for the world to see, another in his breast to show to his special friends and his family, and the real one, the true one, the secret one, which is never known to anyone except to himself alone, hidden only God knows where."
-James Clavell, "Shogun"

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.
