Love Is The Poison And The Antidote.

Love is the poison and the antidote,

Love is the poison

and the antidote,
bittersweet it can

drive partners to despair,
the taste of jealousy

blended with passion,
has made a monster

of many a suitor,
till tragic aftermaths

subtract a life.

It also changes those

most seen as hideous,
into a proud and

cuddling perfect mate,
for years of absence

from love's grace

has taught them,
to change the color

of their hide and be,
the lover they all dreamed of

when they huddled,
rejected in the lab-ryinth

of their sorrows.

When a Jekyl marries

Hyde sometimes the meshing,
creates an ideal pair,

as opposites,
attract each other

for what each is lacking,
supplying what they know

best to shared hunger.

Love can be a

poison or an antidote,
choose wisely when

you drink it's heady brew,
it changes who you are

and leaves you breathless,
as your monster or your

kindest side shines through.
