I Only Felt Love

by walkingnihilist

I only felt love when I could read its sick poetry

in the purple blue bruises on my cracked skin

I only came to know love when I felt its hand around my neck

Tightening it's grip until I couldn't breathe and passed out

I only knew love when words from hell greeted me

Their harsh sting sounded like home to my ears

I only knew love when he was there and love wasn't

Well, it triggered my antipathy for this jerk. You know this is something that deserves intervention by law enforcement. It was poignantly written. Finally, your message is starting to be heard around the more civilized parts of the US and western Europe. I loved this poem even though I find the subject revolting. Great piece!!!!!
