    Oscillating between love and hate, wanting to go away but still can not break free - - these are some of the complex emotions that go with Love.The poem expresses those emotions powerfully.Stunningly beautiful write. (Report) Reply

    hmm yes indeed love sometimes feels like hate its too strong sometimes its so hard to understand, forgiving yet keeping the hurts and they turn to grudges. love the peace
    i love you only because it's you the one I love;
    I hate you deeply, and hating you
    Bend to you, and the measure of my changing love for you
    Is that I do not see you but love you blindly (Report) Reply

    go from loving to not loving you,
    From waiting to not waiting for you.....In this part of the story I am the one who
    Dies, the only one, and I will die of love because I love me the shivers at such deep passion (Report) Reply

    Expressed a confused state about the object of affection; the loved or the hated, with the apocalyptic ending of lover as victim. Stirring conflicting emotions about message or theme; no resolution, doubt lingers as conveyed vividly in the use of tenses. (Report) Reply
