Hate

Inks its

Joyless stains

Killing hope for

Love

* Hopefully hate and love are considered related by the fact they are direct opposites which tremendously affect our world!

This is excellent, using antonyms-- certainly related terms--to convey the theme, Andrea. Janice

I see one of those big, black ink blots and it has raging sharp teeth! Well penned!

Nice message here! I know that most people who take poetry seriously teach to earn money, Of course there are all kinds of people who write poems - of all ages. I know of sanitation workers who have written odes! In the union paper of DC 37 there was a story about a worker/poet. Peace & Love Matthew Anish

I have to watch myself, for the word "hate" has way too much power; I try to not only not use it even sparingly, but I try to never use it. Thanks for the reminder, Andrea.

Very good, Andrea, and the alphabetical rule does not appear to have hindered you much. I would find no objection to hate & love...they match in opposing ways. Regards // paul

Hate is like breathing to some, they can't stop. Nor do they want to. Love breathes life into those that seek goodness. There is so much truth in these few words. ~ Brandy
