Love

Poetry by Sarah Turley

Love is not cute.
Love is a tidal wave that crashes through your life,
Completely submerging you until you drown.
Love is a monster that creeps upon you in the night,
Feeding on your dreams, growing stronger each day, and when it’s least expected, Crushing you with its brute strength.
Love is a black hole,
Engulfing you in darkness, finally letting you find happiness, but having to be forever alone.
Love is not cute,
Love is destructive.
Love is a fire, burning everything in its path.
Love is a hurricane, eating up your life and spitting out the remains.
Love is not cute.
Love should come with respect.
Love is a force to be reckon with.
