To Have Loved and Lost

To Have Loved and Lost

A Poem by Ebits

I'd rather have never felt a love like that in the first place...

"'Tis better to have loved and lost,"
 is what the strangers say.
 These naive fools no naught of love 
 to claim to feel this way.
 To have your heart wrenched from your chest,
 to feel life slip away;
 to lose your hope,
 the joy of life,
 the light of every day;
 to weep yourself til tears are dry,
 til bones and salt remain;
 filled with naught but agony, hatred, and disdain.
 When mindless shell becomes the home
 of the peace that one had owned,
 when Heaven denies these naive fools,
 it's lost love they'll have known.

I can relate to this, good topic. Is it possible not all of us are custom made for love?
