Love. It's a tricky thing. Blind, complex, beautiful, and tragic all at once. But sometimes...sometimes what we think is 'love' turns out to be destructive...

I loved him as earthquake loves ocean -

I trembled; he waved a reply.

And by that what I mean

Is our love was obscene:

A tsunami that reached to the sky.

 

I loved him as lightning loves metal;

I dazzled, but he never talked.

Then I realized one night

That our love needed light -

But when I explained, he was shocked!

 

I loved him as matches love kindling:

One strike and we both were ablaze.

But without much to give,

We neither could live

And our flames flickered out within days.
