A Tainted Love - Poem by Michelle Coppola

Tainted Love, a definition of the Heart.

Painted Love, a vision that's far apart.

Fainted Love, a feeling that always dies.

A Remaining Love is a love that never lies.


They say if you love someone then set them free,

Why set them free if it was a Love to Be.

If it doesn't come back to you then was it tainted?

Or do we imagine Love as always being painted?


Is Love a mirror that we only look in?

Or is love so tainted that we don't know where to begin?

The heart only knows what Love really means,

Tainted, Painted and Fainted Love just intervene.

    Love is about trust, being insecure, listening, being there for them 110 percent (Report) Reply
