A BAD AND GOOD LOVE!


Love is good;
Love is like sweet;
Even nectar becomes poison
When it is consumed in abundance!

Too much of love spoils all!
Loved ones are spoiled in life
Due to too much love care always!

But lovelessness makes a brute;
Lack of love has made angry men,
Who cannot be tamed by anything else!

Love is sweet;
Love should be shown if necessary;
Love when unnecessary makes bad;
Love is necessary to make all good and sweet!

    In love you beat
    In love you shed tears
    Love sustains life
    Then why from love fear?

    This is superb, Ramesh. Truth articulated with style, originality and compassion. My mother loved us strictly, terrified that we might otherwise become 'spoilt brats'. I love an 'angry' man whose mother never cuddled him. This is an insightful poem. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply

    You are correct about love in abundance, to much of anything can make an addict out of you, and there is no worse addiction. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
