A reflection of what we all at some point or another feel. We want to give up or simply want nothing to do with love--but let this be a reminder of everything love is and should be. You define love. This is to help makes you understand why you hate love but refuse to stop wanting it, makes you desire it more.

“ Hate Love"
 

Starting to hate love.

Everything about it— 
The idea, the word, the meaning
It's become much of nothing 
When nothingness is all we feel once it hurts, once it ends. 
It no longer is sacrifice nor —marriage  
Instead; sex, business, and appearance 
It’s unclear what love is 
When lust is more prevalent 
When independence is arrogance 
We want what we want —
When we want it and 
Compromise isn’t an option. Not in this world. Not in this lifetime. 
Give or take someone will always be selfish 
Selflessness is now a mere concept
Uncertainty is now the future
Like dreams, —broken promises, now the norm.
The truth, hard to find when we all know how to bury well
Fear no longer is the enemy of love— we are.
No one is strong enough to break down barriers and walls
No one is patient enough to build concrete relationships and thus 
Hope lives on a lie— 
Love lives somewhere in the hearts of dreamers 
But— 
Love is what love was— to those who still believe.
I don't.
