Loving Hatred


I saw hatred that loved
It loved to hate and hated to love
Hatred that hated to see loving lads
As black as coal it did blur vision
And hardened what could be as soft as pads
I loved loving hatred
Because hatred had never loved but loved
Without that faithful hatred
Most of us might have hated to love
Other than loving to hate
Loving hatred!

    I like the articulation and penning of this poem. Written in simple English, but then one has to pause and in a moment decipher the meaning of the lines. Lovely style. Thanks for sharing. Please have a look at my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply
