Love Should Not Be


Love shouldn’t be so hard.

Love shouldn’t tear a person up inside.

Love shouldn’t cause so much regret, and “should have been”.

Love shouldn’t make you want to cry out loud in a soundless, unstoppable scream.

Love shouldn’t be cruel, make you want to hurt and destroy the one you love.

Love is the abyss, an unfathomable depth of darkness, and bottomless despair.

    Great job, Iris Rain. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth

Oft I had heard of Lucy Gray:
And, when I crossed the wild,
I chanced to see at break of day
The solitary child.

No mate, no comrade Lucy knew;
