Caustic Love


If only I hadn’t let the hunches in my heart dictate the course of my life to you. I took your caustic love for healing and sacrificed my essence for you – only to wish now that I could have me back and let you go once and for all.

Once again excellently done. Straight from the heart.

A much more different observation than that of Leo. Like night-and-day. But you both are keen observers of the human heart, I think.

Great feel of regret captured in this. Nice use of the words!

I can feel the hurting, once again. Sacrificial love can hurt the lover. Like Thom said--you picture well the human heart.

Stan Ski said...

The flip side of the coin. (In reference to Leo's post)

Sadly, it often happens that rose-colored glasses skew the perception of the beloved when one falls in love -- then can come bitter regret. Powerful.

Hindsight is always better. If this is indeed true, did someone say "I told you so?"

My favorite line "wish now I could have me back."

Why do we do that to ourselves? Love should never rob you of you.

A poignant reminder of broken love.
