Love Is - Poem by Chelsea DeVries

We mainly see love as:
Red for passion,
Hearts with wings,
A twinkle in one's eye.

Did You ever stop to think
That love can be a bottomless ditch,
A never ending headache, let alone heartache.
A roller-coaster with one's heart in the front seat.

Love can be a never-finished tub of Ben and Jerry’s,
A marathon of sappy movies,
Singing love songs for the heck of it,
Final words written on tear-stained paper.

Love can be like stepping on broken glass,
Or a knife that continually stabs oneself in the heart,
A broken mirror giving off a distorted picture,
Diving off a cliff with no ocean below it.

Next time you think of love,
Picture it as a thorn on the stem of a rose,
Instead of the rose itself.

    This is brilliant, I like the way you turn our preconceptions upside down, sure made me look at the whole thing differently. There's great passion in your work, keep writing whatever you do!
    All the best,
