This Side of Love

May you never be on the wanting side of love
The needing side
The reaching side
The “You are my life” side of love.
 
May you never be on the thirsty side of the love
The withered side
The shriveled side
The “I can’t breathe without you” side of love
 
May you never be on the tormented side of love
The consuming side
The deranging side
The “I’ll be whoever you want” side of love.
 
May you never be on the unfulfilled side of love
The desiring side
The coveting side
The “Why don’t you want me?” side of love
 
May you never be on the bleeding side of love
The crushed side
The scarred side
The “I’m not good enough for you” side of love
 
Ah, my love, my life, my day, my night…..
My sun, my world, my stars, my light….
 
May you never be on this side of love
The broken side
The wasted side
The side of love
You’ve left me on

    Wow.....instant fav right here! My goodness, I love this one! I'm so happy I've decided to read your older poetry you posted. This is just amazing in every way. It shows that you have so much experience on the affairs and pains of love that certain situations can bring; but it also shows that you wish it on no one. The last stanza is powerful and heartrending... Stunning pieces! Always, Laura

    What a great expression of this side of love. You wouldn't wish This on anyone, yet you capture. The care and the depth of the emotion for the other person. I really love this poem. D.
