Love Has An Element

by N J Thornton   Feb 21, 2006

Love has an element of envy;
It cannot decipher
What is supposed, as a passion
Between thumb and finger.

It has no sense but itself,
An emotive rush thereof
Its meaning, revealed to souls
Who deny belief of love.

*Inspired by poem 650 "Pain has a element of blank;" by Emily D ickinson.

    Well, all i can say is wow.
    I have read all of Emily D !ckinson's poems, including 650
    you have surpassed that one.
    I don't know quite what gets me... into your poems but maybe your word use and short but meaningful lines have in depth meanings that we can never quite decipher...
    But it is incredible.
    5/5 once again

    Your use of words is very effective.
    Cute lil poem. Now I cannot comment on the style as I have a hard time writing in this I think you did really well. Again you use uncommon or original words wich makes it a pleasure to read.
