    Love Shouldn't Hurt
    But it can
    From fists of fury, or
    from words that can cut deeper than
    any brute force could...
    Yet should
    we not expect a certain
    amount of pain
    surrounding something that is so fragile?
    There is so much in life to gain
    when we get this thing called love right.
    And oh so much to lose when we get it wrong.
    And I'll be first to admit that sometimes, it's
    hard to tell whether it's a dirge or a love song.
    Emotions being as they are, sometimes, despite
    ourselves, we end up saying the exact
    opposite of what we really mean. Some of our actions
    become detrimental to the relationship, in fact
    we tend to be self sabotaging to a certain degree.
    Yet acknowledging all of our emotional flaws,
    certain actions cannot be denied. And we
    cannot ignore them, simply because
    to do could likely amount to our death,
    a physical or emotional demise.
    Using a fist to communicate is never acceptable. And if
    words do more to crush than to comfort it would be wise,
    to determine if it is love, or indeed some form of hate
    that is controlling your mate, and ultimately your fate.
    Love shouldn't hurt,
    but it can...
    And if it does often enough
    is it really love?

    Yes Rich the things one can do or say to the detriment of self and to the relationship, indeed. Thank you for your response and support.
    Well now 1poet, wow, oh how nice, to see that you have responded thrice. I appreciate your praise and support, it humbles me coming from one such as yourself. Glad to know you love the avatar, thank you brotha. :)
    Intrepid, yes, it's supposed to be patient and kind. Sometimes it doesn't end up that way though. Thank you poet.
    So kind of you to say SwtT. Definitely something to ponder, thank you so much.
    I'll try to keep doing my thang phenomenal, no it shouldn't but does all too often. Thank you for responding so sista.
