Love Isn't Enough.

Love Isn't Enough.

A Poem by Chan

Within these walls,
tears taunt those who dwell inside,
Tearing at hearts,
screaming out at the lies.

Alone in pain,
alone in sorrow,
Torturing emotions,
a neverending flow.

Attempting to stay together,
learning love isn't always enough,
Too different to be together,
unable to be apart.

Knowing no happiness will ever settle,
try anyways for a dream,
Reality rears it's head,
love turns to hate.

Violent fights replace sweet caresses,
hurtful shouts take the place of loving words,
Leaving now will be painful,
staying would only kill them both inside.

wow.. this writer tells us these stories as if she has experienced them firsthand..
another great example of capturing the essence of the situation..
it so so true that love isn't enough..
and what's needed more is a mutual amount of respect and admiration for each other..
i love the diversity of the dream and reality part of this piece as well..
and the explanations of the extremities that exist..

BRAVO!

Pain and conflict reside hand in hand within your writing. Love it. I shall not be one to give you advice. Whether the content be based in reality present or past, or someone that you know, it is the writing that matters here, and yours is powerful, insightful, and imaginative. Bravo.

"try anyways for a dram, reality rears it's head" - My favorite line. Beautifully written and shows the reality of a life that some people live in. It reminds of my own family so I like that it is relatable. Great job.

Holy Smoke, I looked for sweetness and light
and found a big fight.

good example of a bad situation and time to
leave.

Appears as if you have actualy experienced this scene first hand. The last twelve words of this poem truly paints the conclusion of many relationships!

Maybe it could be set to music.

Love is only one part of many needed emotions. Kindness and being there when needed is some of many things needed to maintain a relationship. Poem is powerful. Can feel struggle to hold on to a piece of love and emotion. A excellent poem.

that is cool and scary-eshh because it's real


oh, i wish i can be there to massage your neck and back and then be gone again in a flash when you fall asleep in warm blanket's serenity and when you arose i was a cat instead(?).. thus not leaving love's initial altogether.. and bringing me back to my independence and non-commitment of singleness once more[which is not as easy as it may seem]
