Types of Poetry #9: Love Comparison

Love can be pure

Or it can be fake.

It can come from friendship

Or from a stranger.

Love can be romantic

Or it can be for everyone.

It can be warm and beautiful

Or it can be harmful and full of pain.

Love can be remembered forever

Or it can be forgotten in a heartbeat.

It can be slow and steady

Or sudden and unexpected.

Love can be inspiring for the mind and soul

Or it can be demeaningĀ and degrading.

It can be acceptance

Or it can be possessiveness.

Love can be physical

Or it can be mental.

It can be between humans

Or between creatures.

Love can be said out loud

Or it can be expressed.

It can be everlasting

Or it can end at any time.

Love can be togetherness

Or it can be loneliness.

It can be peaceful

Or it can be terrifying.

Love can be exhilarating

Or it can be mind numbing.

It can be needy

Or it can be satisfied.

Love can be stupidly happy

Or it can be stupidly stupid.

Love can be fallen in love with

Or it can fall in love with you.


For this post, I wanted to take the most common topic (love) and explore the different ways each is typically portrayed along with its opposite.
