evil


I am evil because I love too much,
wanting those I love to keep in touch;

I am evil that I dare to care,
evil that I'm always 'there';

evil. I invite insult;
evil; I deserve the hurt.

I am evil that I wish to protect;
I am evil that I cannot neglect

the needs, or those I mis-perceive
in those who have no need, it seems.

I am evil that I wish to say
how much I love someone today.

I am evil if I self-protect
with reason, tears or intellect.

I am evil if I should expect
love back; for I deserve neglect.

I am evil that I may press on;
for evil people should be gone.

    Tara, love your new last name. But this poem is absolutely incorrect. You are a brillant and tender hearted writer of poetry!
    Have a great New Year.

    They say that the road to hell is paved with good intentions and ironically it is often like that in life: 'I am evil because I love too much,
    wanting those I love to keep in touch;
    I am evil that I dare to care,
    evil that I'm always 'there'...' The playful rhyme enhances the effect of the irony. I Think i am evil too :) Best wishes, one (Report) Reply

    You are not 'Evil' Tara...'Wicked' perhaps...but would that ALL of my aquaintences were as 'Evil' as yourself.
    Oh and regarding Tai's message...Dont forget to put the baubles on the clitoris tree...Oh and don't miss out on lighting it up.
    Best wishes also to the guy who snores for England.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
