Love can be amazing, if you find the famouse one though. The one person who could never use it against you, because you couldn't use it against them.
But sometimes, sometimes it causes for tragic consequences.

My love for you is complete,
Your love for me is weak.
Our love is the moon and sun.
I’d take the bullet, you’d hold the gun.
I’d die for you before I think,
You’d let me die without a blink.
We’re fire and ice, my love and your hate,
But I can’t let go, for me it’s too late.
I’m hooked on your sight, your sent, your smile,
I can no longer live in denial.
I love you, that’s all there is,
Though I’m sure, me you won’t miss.
Without you, there’s no life for me,
So I’ll lean into the black sea.
I’ll let the darkness claim my life,
Let the black be my last ever sight.
Forgive me God for what I’ve done,
Though without him, I have no one.
The past may be dead and I may be gone,
But my love for will live on.

A very dark poem, but a good read, nonetheless!

Love can sometimes just be a delusion created by the mind which allows for a person to escape from their problems. Still, I like the poem itself.

Love ain't a delusion. If ya got an urge ta' be with someone, that ain't love, cause' its one sided...but what do I know 'bout love, anyway? I do like yer stuff, though. Nice to see someone writing poetry that's got a rhyme scheme, which ain't so common...

Thankyou. I'm trying to write a happy poem actually. Though I must admit it isn't going very well. :)

Reminds me of the song Russian Roulette. XP (I always loved that big BANG at the end, even though it wasn't nice) I'd do this James Bond mode with my hands just when that goes. XP A lil silly, I know, but...
Wow I noticed a pattern here lots of your poems about love is always one sided. (Well... whatever Unfortuante Cowboy said) I've always wondered about finding your 'perfect other half' thing. Seems kinda hard to find. TT_TT I mean it has to be 'perfect' and everything. :P Apparently some people find it horrifying to get married or something cos that means they're like with the other person forever. XP (I hope that was a joke cos it wasn't very nice!) I like your poems! :P Makes me feel philosophical. It's not exactly a comfortable feeling, but it gets soemthing off my chest. :P

Haha, sorry for making you feel uncomfortable, and I haven't read this poem for a while. Hmm.
