The Dream Within the Nightmare

The Dream Within the Nightmare

A Poem by TK Little (dave)
"

There is only room for everything.

"
It's not chaos
It is freedom
We are not perfection
We are human
We can't just love
We must also hate
We can't just live
We must also die

Hate isn't necessary! Love is so much easier. To hate someone or something you have to give thought to them. I can't see myself wasting my time on something or someone I dislike. I'd rather ignore them altogether. NO! Sorry! I believe in love and I believe that love doesn't have to balanced by hate.
Take care - Dave

So true.. some days hate is the only way to live but then you miss love.

Simple and true. It reminds me of Rufus Wainwright's song "What Would I Ever Do With a Rose?" In it, he states, "Never can the dream come true without the nightmare."

Well done!

I find it difficult to hate. Does that mean I should also find it difficult to love, if you can't have one without the other?

One does not exist without the other.
I quite liked this one. Very sharp and on point. This poem provided me with a better perspective on things.

I'm glad. Perspective is everything.
You played well with the contrasting elements. I fell in love with this work after reading. One can only be nudged into a trance of introspection.

But I may also say that your review of my work was very scathing. It was uncalled for. If my work was that bad, maybe a private message would have called me to order. There was no need for you to have said all that you had said. Your words were at best, very very caustic.

Good work.

You're right. I was overly caustic. I apologize for that.

We do all things, some less well than others. The hard bit though is getting the balance right, not falling to far to one side otherwise we can become all things not likeable, sickly sweet, hard nosed, cold, a brown nose, a push over, the list is endless.

I don't believe there ever really was a price.
Our perfection is in our flaws. That is how we love, learn and share with one another. If I keep to the theme I would say your poem is perfect but man it is profound.
