About the Poem

I wrote this poem while I was trying to figure out what love is even supposed to be about. The poem goes on to explore the beginning through the end of a relationship, whether it be good or bad. But mine just turned out to be a broken heart, which in the end tore me apart.

This poem was the exact way that I was feeling and I needed to know that someone else was feeling the same thing that I have went through. I wish that it wouldnt have happened to me but it did and im glad to see that Im not alone in this at all.

Love's Pleasure And Pain

I'm trying to figure out
what love is supposed to be about
In the beginning you're always so nice
But in the end, you're as cold as Ice

In the end, when you look in their eye's
That's when you realize all their lies
In the beginning you would never think
That they could be so mean in a simple blink

I told you once
I told you twice
that when you love you pay the price
You feel so empty
Cold and blue
So stressed out
And so confused

The one who made you so happy and glad
Is the same one who is making you sad and mad
When one tries to talk about wanting them to stay
The other just turns and walks away

When you smile
For a little while
you realize it's fake
You're just trying to hide your heartache
After you realize that love was a mistake

Once you realize they're gone
you automatically ask yourself what you did wrong
Your heart starts going insane
From all their pain
You ask yourself how you're gonna stay sane

Your heart keeps tearing
Because, you're the only one caring
You try not to care
So you try to glare
You try to get away,
and you try to convince yourself that you'll be okay.
