The Paradox of Love

The Paradox of Love

A Poem by thaleeyaLuna

To love too much is a paradox of love itself. . .


To love too much
is an impeccable flaw;
an altruistic act of selfishness;
and an intrepid show of vulnerability.

To love too much 
is a paradox of love itself.

A smoothly written piece that managed to heartrendingly capture the paradox that is love. Made my heart stutter with how accurately you presented the subject. Stunning work!

To love too much

This is beautiful! Right down the the presentation! The font size and spacing and the punctuation of the picture adds so much to the words just on their own. But the words truly bring out the full effect. This is so very _real_. Loving so much and so freely is so dangerous. But without taking that chance, nothing will come from the love you don't give.

Thank you for reading and sharing your thoughts on this one. 😊
Too much love? Maybe. In seconds and moments. We stamp the memory of love. The weakness of life. We don't know the value of love till she is gone. The artwork and words. Amazing. Thank you for sharing the outstanding poetry.

You are welcome my friend.
Really gives you an idea about what love really is.. I like this because it seems like an interpretation of how love can make us very vulnerable and how leaving our hearts unprotected will cause them to break easier. It also sounds so sad, like one heart break can transform someones idea of love into something completely different. The first time you fall in love, you don't know not to love too much. But the second time around, you remember how battered it left you, so suddenly emotion becomes your enemy. Too much love turns from good to evil. Great write.
