Recycling Love - Poem by Elena Sandu

If love won't fight
Reckless disregard
Will it survive
Will be drowned
Knocked down?
Much in such
Long time
Shall love survive?
love is nothing
but a waste
To the recycle factory
Let it be sent!
Melted! Smashed!
Then molded as before,
Be given function,
used anew
no more than once
With reckless disregard
Be back to trash
Cut, melted smashed
returned to life
Because only
Love has the strength
to be trashed
Again and again
never to give up
always recycling itself.
...Always recycling itself...

    Flexibility of love is tremendous and it's other virtue is forgiving. These qualities help it get rejuvenated time and again even after being thrashed etc. Nice conceptualization. Enjoyed the poem. Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply

    Interesting concept here on why love so often seems to fail, and yet could it be that what seems to be love is really mistaken hope? Read mine - Cicatrix -

    always recycling itself.
