Love Is...
  

To love is to hurt

To love is to smile

To love is to cry

To love is to go the extra mile

To love is to wonder why?

To love is to lie

To love is to feel as if you're about to die

To love is to wish

To love is to want

To love is to taunt

To love is to be confused

To love is to be jealous

To love is to be rude

To love is to feel worthless

To love is to feel weak

To love is to feel helpless

To love is to feel meak

If love is so great then why do we feel all of these horrible things?

When it really comes down to it, to love is to hate

Hate yourself

Hate the one you love

Hate them for messing with your mind

Hate them for playing games

Hate them for always being happy

Hate them for never feeling ashamed

Hate them for their never ending quest

Hate them for how much they're in love with themselves

Hate them for their heartless attack

Hate them for their continuous lack

But most importantly, you hate them for not loving you back

Nice mix of both love and hate. You tied them together and kept the flow at the same time. You speak for all of us who have felt all of this.

Synopsis
During my first year in college I fell hard for a man who did not feel the same way about me. This poem is a reflection of my thoughts at that horrible time.
