The Weight of Love ~ Aryan Mootheeram

Love used to flow from you
like rain in the amazon,
Abundant

Now your scorn scorches
the plains of my heart
like a drought in the desert
How am I still addicted
to the taste of your love
if I am scorched more
often than Loved?

For love should outweigh
scorn
But for me, that is but an
impossible dream.

  1. Yes, it is bewildering how love can turn to scorn, and to pain. You have written this well.
