A Poem by Wamakai

my view from my experiences.

The heart is so brittle and fragile. It breaks so easily... Prone to guilt, prone to pain, susceptible to heartache, open to love, heedless to reason, naive to lies...
Love is a pain only love can heal.
Love is a drug only love can destroy.
Love is a death only love can die.
Love is a game only love can play...
It's so painful when love bites back. That's when everything falls apart. Puting it back together is always the hardest part. But hearts are so fragile, so brittle and the journey to completion is so long and wearisome. If you do make it, learning to love again is a task you can never decide fully whether to perform...
Love is so many things. It is a threat to all the things that matter. Love is not a joke or an empty word. Love is pain, love is healing. Love is war, love is peace. Love is torment, love is bliss. But ultimately, love is life.
