I would be heartless if i could,
For i've known much about love already,
A desire that can burn it's seeker eventually..
Unmercifully, slow, and steady.

It's a circle that cannot be broken,
A pattern so well revised.
Broken hearts, and hearts that break,
A devil in the form of an angel disguised.

Trapped in this triangle,
In which my heart is the focal point,
Like a taste of both worlds,
Hate and love rejoined.

Yes, i would be heartless if i had the chance,
Except that i would miss out on much.
Emotional paralysis is indeed a curse,
As a passion that follows a touch.

I have known much about love already,
From the number of times my heart has bled.
But i also know when it stops hurting,
That's the same as being dead.

This heart keeps beating,
I am still very much alive.
Everything comes with a price, of course,
We ain't alive if we never cry.

    It was a great pleasure reading your poem after such a long time & as it seems, we know why you were away for so long.

    I simply loved the simplicity of your poem but then at the same time the message behind every word was so strong.

    We all go through such phases in life but not all of us learn the way you did.

    Welcome back, great poem.

    all the best and take care

    Life and love can pull us in many directions many times in our lives. Love and hate are two words that seem to go together no matter how hard we try to keep them apart.
