    Hate may kill you once but betrayal kills you for life.
    Hate may kill you but love is why you're alive.
    Hate may kill you but love won't let you die.
    And that, I think, is worse. (Report) Reply

    Love is not the opposite of hate. Selfless love is needy so love is hate. Josef Fritzl loved Elisabeth so much, he needed to keep her in a basement dungeon for 26 years. Some women do something similar with marriage. (Report) Reply

    Its not just a poem ever lasting history experience of every human in certain age and stage, Dorothy Parker understood the worse on the name of the Love. The poet is most eligible for more regards and appreciation in my long words to the very short but sweet and hot poem (Report) Reply

    Dorothy Parker possessed such a sharp wit
    that before she opened mouth
    people would laugh out-loud
    anticipating a marvelous quip (Report) Reply
