The Depths: A Poem

Updated on January 22, 2013
Source


Love is hated, feared,

Perverted and used,

Like fruit in a vice,

It is wholly drained and bruised,

Love is a stranger to some,

Watched through windows in others' lives,

Reserved for the weak and dumb,

Are those who yield to its burning fire,

But for some, it's like a precious treasure,

Given and received, it multiplies,

Like ocean's waves it reaches further,

To draw out truth hidden behind a charmer's lies.
