Letter To Love

Poem by: HR Matthews

Summary

Written: circa 2010
Meaning: I wrote this in the form of a letter to the concept of love, from humanity as a whole. Many previous readers have made a correlation to the Christian idea of "God", but I assure you that is not what I intended. It is merely an idea I had about how every thought, action, and verbal expression we have is fueled by some form of love. Also, the conclusion presented in the letter is stating that humankind is the downfall of our entire planet's survival.

Dear LOVE,

 

Of all the emotions expressed by the living entities in this world, you are by far the most influential. My very evolution is in thanks to you. You are the blood in my veins, the signals in my brain, the muscles in my limbs, and the nerves under my skin. YOU ARE THE REASON FOR MY EXISTENCE. You are the cause and effect of my every action. Encompassing all types of feelings, you are the backbone of emotion itself. The vastness of your reach is unsurpassable by any thought imaginable. I thank you for all you have contributed to the creation and development of life. In yet, I no longer deserve to be graced with your presence. The evils I have committed against you, the very essence of life, are atrocious. All throughout the history of my existence, you have been present and persistent in pushing me towards progression. All the while, I was kicking and screaming. Masking your beauty with my destructive ways. If only I could fully understand your unconditional consistency. After all the lessons you have taught me, the elegance of the universe you have shown me, and your endless effort to redeem me from myself, I am obligated to apologize for ending existence. If I knew then what I know now, I would have opened my eyes sooner and appreciated the grand gift of life.

 

Sincerely,

Humanity
