... Why Love Hurts Poem by Eyan Desir

... Why Love Hurts

Rating: 3.2

Love is a river
In our life it flows
A small seed that grows
A flower without beauty
A beauty without a face
Ageless without origin
Sweet like sugar
Bitter like liquor
A supernatural force
That causes hearts to attract
To another half.
To form one part.

When this river stops
The flower will die
Sometimes our eyes cry
Sugar turns to salt
Sometimes it's not our fault
Now our lives are bitter
Two hearts design forever
Divided, It hurts! because
Love was meant forever.

Love hurts as do all lessons in life sometimes. Out of pain comes the knowledge to do things different. Love carries memories that teaches, muse and we savour the moments of pleasure. Love is a powerful, powerful thing and not for the faint hearted or the ill prepared. Unfortunately it can creep upon on us and catch us off guard..love is beautiful for me and moreso it is the message of the scriptures. Good luck! E

I really liked the theme of a river, the first stanza with the flowing river, then the second when it ceases to flow. Your imagery was well thought out, and the comparison of passion then pain was very nicely done. Love should hold the world together. Love is played all day long on radio, in films, in poetry and novels and billions of songs and poems have been crafted. And yours is a lovely piece of work. 10 from me

Liked the title. Context is also good. The starting line is really good and so is the ending line. Nice work.

This poem is from my collection of Poems 'On Love' which I plan to upload in PH shortly Love is – Immortal! Love – It grows but never ages Though it blooms It never withers, By itself most blind Yet is fed by sight. Full of jealousy Never vengeful Grows by thoughts Yet, it pines away. Though most delicate Nothing sturdier grew, Called Divine – It makes people mad. Love is made immortal By mortal men and women! Whatever it is - We can never do without Love - Or it's pain! Angel.
