I don’t understand it
I’ve never understood it
Even when I’m knee deep in it
How can you love somebody with everything that is you
Then down the line
you can’t stand the air they breathe
What is that about?
Whose idea was that!
I don’t understand it!
Will I ever understand it?
Even though I’m knee deep in it?

  1. You express this well; the anguish of it all. When people ask what the opposite of love, they often say it is hate. I see love and hate as being two strong emotions, if we talk of romantic love. To me, the opposite is apathy. That makes the conundrum easier to understand, at least for me. Thank you for this profound poem.
