Opposite of love is not hate

Poem by: amoretrainer

Summary

The truth is, the opposite of love isn't hate. It's apathy and we all fear that to the point of being willing to poke that sleeping giant to feel something, anything other than admitting there is nothing left.

Her words painted a blank canvas of solicitude

 

Under white skies further lies were hidden

 

and I could never tell where the past ended nor a future be

 

Or if deception relinquished so truth could see

 

She said, "We're all going to die I do believe"

 

And I knew she was right.  Already dead t'was me

 

She wanted me to feel her apathy, but to care would be contradictory

 

So we swam those tepid waters deaf to a consciences

 

Was it life we avoided or the loss of our dream

 

A death resembling her lack of faith not only in life or love it seems

 

but me...
