Love is a monster

Love is a monster

A Poem by under-the-water

Love.

Love is a monster.

Hidden in descise as

heart shaped chocolate boxes.

And Home made love notes

And Music mix tapes.

And Red roses.

And Charm bracletts.

With crappy stick on glitter.

 

 

Love.

Love is a monster.

It inhales your weaknesses

Spitting back vulnerability

That now will lurk in you forever.

Opening up your chest

Seeping into your heart

So it can live in side you

And destroy your indiviguality.

 

Love.

Love is a monster.

It feeds off of your innocence.

Chewing and gnawing at your common sense

So that right and wrong bleed into a blur of confusion

Shoving you into mistakes.

 

Love.

Love is a monster.

it drinks your defenses

The same ones you once made

Just to protect your self

From getting hurt one more time.

But love works in strange ways.

And knocks some stupid person into your life

And you decide that they’re just the most “amazing thing”

But now your stuck with this damn vulnerability

And there is no other choice but to give them a piece of you

That they  don’t want

Nor deserve it

But just the silly thought of being wanted

gets stuck in your head

And love is just sitting back relishing the trainrek of what your becoming.

 

 

 

 

Love.

Love is a monster.

 It takes you hostage

Along with  redroses on valentines day.

And good night  I love you texts.

And butterfly kisses.

And chocolate hearts.

And just having someone to want you.

Just knowing that maybe there is a reason for you.

That somebody actually needs you.

That if you dropped off the face of the earth.

Some one would cry.

And would miss you.

But Love likes to trick you.

And make you feel that way.

But your not.

And In the end.

When he says “its not working”

Love has completed its task.

And You have let that monster love

Burn you

And now

all your left with

 is the cold truth.

This is not love that you speak of, I'm sorry to say. It is a well written poem but "love is that you dropped off the face of the Earth and you can't wait for him/her to fall with you, and you know that they would"

I sympathize with you. In my experience, love and rejection go so close together they're often the same
