Recycling love


If love won’t fight
The
Reckless disregard
Will it survive
Or
Will be drowned
Knocked down?
Too
Much in such
Long time
Shall love survive?
If
love is nothing
but a waste
To the recycle factory
Let it be sent!
Cut!
Melted! Smashed!
Then molded as before,
again!
Be given function,
used anew
no more than once
With reckless disregard
Be back to trash
Recycled,
Cut, melted smashed
returned to life
Why?
Because only
Love have the strength
to be trashed
Again and again
never to give up
always recycling itself.
...Always recycling itself...

    Interesting concept here on why love so often seems to fail, and yet could it be that what seems to be love is really mistaken hope? Read mine - Cicatrix -

    Words of such truth have seldom been spoken... and never to my ears with such eloquence and beauty of expression as you have yours. (Report) Reply

    always recycling itself.
