Love Is A Five Letter Word

I think
I’m choking
On holy water;
Floundering in
The Fountain of Youth;
Struggling with
This noose
Around my heart;
Found an empty
Pot of gold at the end of the rainbow …
Maybe love
Is a five letter word:
Death

    I thought the word was ‘loved’…but it is another level….great match of choking-noose-death

    Love and loss certainly go hand-in-hand. Interesting.

  5. Is it possible to love something that is also sad? Yes? Well, I loved it.

    So true, romantic love has broken my heart many times, so now I’m extra cautiousπŸ˜”

      It breaks all our hearts 😦 But eventually we find someone who knows how to put the pieces back together, I think. And it’s good to be cautious. But we must be open too so things can come in. You’re a fantastic person; you’ll attract good things. I know it!

  8. What a surprise in the end.. Nicely constructed!
