Confusion - Poem by Shannon Nicole

Is this emotion I'm feeling called love?
Where it sends shivers up my spine.
When I blush so deep that I can't help but giggle,
Is it love?

What is this hatred doing in me?
Why do people hate?
When we can love.
Is there ever going to be an end to this hate?

All this darkness,
Tightening around me,
Is there ever gonna be an entrance to the light?
I ask myself,
Am I dead?
Is this depression?

All those tears,
Broken hearts and scars,
There's no way out.
Death is our only escape from this Hell.

Can it be,
That all these things I feel,
Are real?
Is this how we're supposed to live our lives?
Is there any quiet places,
That we can sleep through the darkness?

These are all emotions, that we are bound to feel.

Tears and screams,
They don't solve anything.
Love and hate,
They're just normal emotions.
Death and depression,
They're are sad,
But true.

    Robert Frost comments on love like this-Love is an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired. and
    Sir James M. Barrie says-If you have Love, you don't need to have anything else, and if you don't have it, it doesn't matter much what else you have.
    there is no confusion; i love this poem as it reinforces my love for love-Great poem Smart(you are loved)
