    Love’s Paradox - poem

    Love’s Paradox


    Love and loss embrace

    They are like traveling companions on a journey

    They are forever joined together as one

    How is it that something so beautiful and something so painful can coexist?

    It’s cruel

    What redeeming quality is there in loving only to have your heart ripped out by loss?

    They say it’s better to love and have lost than to never have loved at all

    So, who are “they”?

    Since when do “they” know what’s best for me?

    Do “they” know what it feels like to experience the greatest loss to a child, the loss of parental love?

    Have “they” experienced the subsequent crippling fear of loss that eats away at the heart without mercy?

    How many losses does it take before one chooses to forget how to love?

    Why does the soul of mankind continue to go back time and time again to love when pain so oftentimes follows?

    Are we all just hopeless idiots who are too stupid to stay away from that which causes pain?

    Or could it be that we were born with an instinct to love so that our souls can be persevered and enriched forever?

    What a paradox

    What irony

    What heart-breaking reality

    Sorry to say not interested who never feel sorry on those actions which have been made. He loves me so much but slept letters beginning to end. Dont want man hooker which is not safe.

        Hello, I'm not sure I understand what you mean by what you say - at any rate, the poem is not about any particular relationship, but about the pain of loss and how love and loss go together - but that doesn't mean it's a bad thing, just painful - and that as painful as loss can be sometimes, avoiding love to avoid loss is worse
