Scare away!

Updated on September 18, 2014

Oh my love!

You scare me

worse than a lizard,

playing

hide and seek

all the time;

Roses shower

when you smile,

cockroaches take flight

at your stare;

May I know

what causes

your mood-swings?

Certainly,

not I!

My heart is as empty,

at times,

as it is full;

So difficult to rely

on my intermittent happiness,

So muddled up

to do anything sensible;

Ev'n Tantalus

wouldn't have been teased

to this extent;

Hear you not my love?

Am I not meant for joy?

My love,

reconsider your dealings with me,

and let me be a sane member

in the insanity of love!

Nothing in this world

hurts

like the interest in love-interest!

      We've all loved like this. Love is not always stable.

      At times mood swings can be scary between people who love.

      I couldn't live with someone with such mood swings. Way too much drama for my life. I like breakfastpop's suggestion. :)

      Sometimes love hurts and sometimes it's insanely wonderful. You captured the feelings perfectly..

      What a perfectly written poem with a plea I feel we all have asked a lover at least once in our lives. Jamie
