All the words you've spoken
have torn straight through my heart-
torn it right in half.
It's hard to imagine a heart so cold-
could hold an ounce of love.
Every word you speak
holds hate in every breath
When will it end?
A very sadness and regretful write, atleast that is what I gathered from my reading. I found it very interesting your use of repitition. I liked that.
It always difficult when you find yourself in a very bad relationship. And sometimes you just simply cannot help to but just walk away because there is simply nothing yoou can do. But alas there will always been those terrible memories. This is what the poem evoked to me. It was an good write. Keep up the good work and have a blessed and wonderful day.
i didnt know someone could be so in love with theirselves to not the love the person that makes them smile. i guess thats why they call love bittersweet. you put so much into it but get nothing in return. truly sad but good way of putting it nice write i liked it
I enjoyed reading this. This could be a very good song due to the repeating stanza, which is probably my favourite in the whole poem. Simplicity at its best. I also liked how the "verses" (if you will) linked to the repeating stanza and they went very deep into emotions which only helped draw the reader in some more. Nice expression!
This was pretty friggin straightforward and I read it as someone trying to explain their feelings in a calm and rational way in order to maybe get an answer rather than cry or scream, ya know? Thats just how the title struck me...and the expression was superb. Have a good one and keep smilin'
heartbreaking read Candi it is very moving. I feel the deep torment in it, a great and horrible pain. my favorite line "Every word you speak holds hate in every breath" that expression of language is awesome. I wish the you the best blessings and brightest days, sincerely and respectfully, Mike :) ((added, I'm putting this up))
Good expression of feeling in this piece. I can feel the anger screaming out of the words written here, an angery hurt. I too feel the end would be better without the "The" before bittersweet love otherwise a good piece of writing. Take care!
man...it's like a movie again! one of those drama where this guy is just so blind and cannot see the love that we give them! bittersweet...what a wonderful title... why sweet? why not sour? question...why do we keep loving this guy even though you already know they're never gonna love you and they've already stabed your heart more than once?
... have you read the book. 'Women who love too much' ? it seems that there is one heck of a lot of this painful bitter sweet love about on this planet. common sense and education does not appear to make one ounce of difference. where we may avoid poison and dangerous objects and protect ourselves from catching certain contagious diseases we just allow ourselves to be hurt time and time again. i guess its a more powerful addiction than heroin. ouch!
