        my foggy heart wanders through love

                        like a junkie looking for a fix

         getting high on hope and dancing

like a cheap stripper on display

         holding absolutely nothing back

and getting fucked, over and over

Feast or famine would be the words I'm looking for to describe this. Some find love and are happy as clams. Others strike out without ever having a chance to swing.

I like that! Well said! :)
Probably not very cheap, though.
Your heart seems like a pretty classy dame, from what I've read.
Just tell her to stay out of the nightclubs, and stop making googly eyes at lounge singers.
She'll get noticed, before long.

Great metaphors and love is like a drug. Bryan Ferry sang about it.

Towering
Have you ever fallen in love with a house? Have you ever fallen in love with your own drafted dream mansion?
Sex Education Day
How archaic notions of sexuality and virginity are foisted primarily on girls.
I liked how you define love is this poem. The word honest, cold and direct. This is what poetry support to be. Thank you Ana for sharing the amazing poetry and your thoughts.

You are welcome Ana. I liked this one.
reminds me of the series Crank by Ellen Hopkins. and, y'know, most psychologists would agree that love is literally a drug we can get addicted too

well yes, i imagine it can feel like both, quite often.

We put our hearts out there, bare them, beg for love to get us through the day...and often get nothing but others turning away from us like we have the plague.

well done with the metaphors.
