Love--eternity's greatest paradox:
agony and extascy,
pleasure and pain.
are in turn conquered--
blending heroic exploits
and unfathomable fear.
We need and want love
but are terrified when confronted with it.
theres not much i can say about this poem except that its very true. like, very very true. its depressing how contrasting love can be. i can't even begin to tell you how true this is. im barely even reading the poem, just seeing the truth. sorry bout that. amazing job on this one. and its so (youll never guess) true.
this is kinda defeatest... kinda giving up hope in love... making it out of reach... but fair enough... it brings out the best and the worst in ppl which can be seen in this poem... love is just one big paradox... did you know that love and hate are the same chemical imbalance of the brain...? wouldnt really surprise me if there was any truth in that statement really but yeah... anyways... needless to say i really like this poem... especially the part about conquering lovers conquered (and i know i cant spell...) i reals like your groove! cheers!
I would make just a few minor changes. Love Eternity's greatest paradox of agony and extascy, pleasure and pain. Conquering lovers Are in turn conquered- Blending heroic exploits and unfathomable fear. We need and crave love but are terrified when confronted with it.
You may use or discard any of these suggested changes, but it was quicker to change the few words than try to explain it. jan
This is great. You are very right. I have never thought of love that way, but it's true. It is wonderful how you shed a new light on the subject of love. Quoting parts of someones piece usually bothers me, but the last line spoke to me. It really opened my eyes to the poem in understanding it better. Such emotions together in one poem, awesome. Well done.
