They Say

They say, 
"It’s better to have loved and lost, 
then to never have loved at all."

I guess that all depends 
on how the loss occurred.
Was it something that 
eventually faded away 
or did it end up turning, 
into some form of hate?

They say, 
"There’s a fine line 
between love and hate."

There once was a time 
when you used to love me, 
way back when, 
and now 
you probably hate me 
because we’re no longer friends. 
But that’s fine, 
because I kind of despise you too,
for all the pain
you put me though.

They say,
"True love will never die 
and will always stand the test of time."

I guess the love that I knew, 
never really was true,
because if it was, 
then it would still be alive.
There would still be a “we” 
instead of just you 
without me.
They say,
"Time heals all wounds,"
which is a complete lie.

A total bunch of crock 
said in love’s demise.
Although, it might sting a little less
eventually given some time.
But it will never completely mend
and a part 
will always remain 
the same.
It’s just something 
that they tell you,
to keep you pacified.

They say, 
"Ignorance is bliss,"
living without a clue.

I wish I could 
live in bliss.
How appealing that would be,
to have no more painful thoughts
and all hurtful memories freed.
To have all of my worries 
be completely remiss.
Please let me just dwell 
a little bit more on this...

    It would seem love is worthless when lost... and it's sad when the loss hurts so much as to overshadow what 'we used to love about and in' each other... Doubled edged, but thank god for so... else we'd never really know, why we loved so large, in the first place. :) it's the space in between, where we grow... begin and end, don't make the 'substance' of what you lived, loved and learned. xo Great and heartfelt write.
