::Love Defined::

::Love Defined::

A Poem by Jeanette

I love to read
To experience someone else's story in my mind.

 

 

I love to feel
The things I don't in my own life.

 

 

I love to write
To express what spoken words never
could.

 

 

I love to ponder
About life and deeper meanings.

 

 

I love to cry
For the losses that are not my own.

 

 

I love to laugh
At the jokes that I only get.

 

 

I love to hurt
It lets me know that I'm alive.

 

 

I love to sleep
To dream things that will never be.

 

 

I love to leave
To see things outside these four walls.

 

 

And most of all...

I love to love

 

Because its the only emotion there is.

 

 

Without love, we ought not care about anything.

 

 

You must love to feel hate.

 

 

You must love to feel loss.

 

 

You must love to feel anger.

 

 

You must love, to in return be loved.

 

 

Love, for something is to care.

 

Love lacking, for something, is to care more about the opposition.

 

 

There is nothing without love.

 

 

It is the greatest joy, and the greatest pain that exists.

 

 

And because of that..

 

 

I love to love.

I like where you're going with this and the ideas presented. But, I would say show me the images and make me feel them rather than just tell me. For example you begin with your love of reading to experience someone else's story in your mind, but maybe show me how much you love reading, show me the other person's story and how it effects you. Same for the other stanza's. Getting rid of abstractions I think there is great potential for a very powerful and emotional poem here.

@J~ Good idea, however if I tried to explain everything I've ever felt, it would end 1 of 2 ways:

1. A fantastic novel.

2. My brain would explode.

I'll try to share more of me in the future.
Thanks for the feedback, I appreciate it! =)
