    twowolves80 Darkness Incarnate; don't even bother

    Love is
    a shiny bauble
    glittering in the dark,
    ephemeral,
    the feel of smoke
    through your fingers.

    Love is
    a warm light
    pushing back
    the darkness
    of night
    and its funerary shadow.

    Love is
    a carrot dangling,
    a lure for the unwary,
    snaring the soul
    but evaporating
    without substance.

    Love is
    the promise
    of better days
    that goes unfulfilled,
    leaving me bitter
    and brittle.

    Love is
    a luxury
    I can't afford,
    an indulgence
    I will never know,
    an empty promise.

    Love is

    pain.

    Hey Wolfie :) that's a good explanation of love. It's probably the best and worst feeling you can have. The biggest yin/yang of feelings we humans can experience.

    Mostly yang for me because the Pattern never lets me experience the yin. It always snatches it away right before I can grasp it.

    Lovely poem as always, but I know you are going through some stuff. I know you will say you are fine, and I know you are a strong person, but I am always here for you if you need someone to listen.
