    so basically, i'll love you so long as you love me. very childish and soggy i think, not to mention boring. a very lazy poem. (Report) Reply

    To me this poem is incredibly shallow despite its beautiful imagery.The depth and quality of one's love for another cannot be contingent on the depth and quality of the other's for them. That is not true love. That is abject subjugation, dependency, neediness. Is he saying love is only real when it is mutual? This is not true love. It is capricious and CONDITIONAL. True love is inextinguishable because it is timeless and unconditional. Sometimes love hurts, esp. when it is unrequited. Feigning indifference or affecting a false bravado is not only delusional but dysfunctional as well. This way his feelings would never be resolved if not returned in kind. I thought maybe he was trying to be ironic but it doesn't work either way. The mere fact that someone writes beautifully does not validate their message. (Welcome replies.) (Report) Reply

    Agree with you. I can understand why people find the poem beautiful because the language is flowery. Its the romantic feeling that is missing, and I simply cannot fathom why anyone would say this poem is filled with love.

    Sweet... Explains truly the fear [3 and if you forget
    everything will be lost
    a sun without shine
    and the moon without light
