First of all, I’d like to aplogise for being mia and not posting anything; but I’m back, and I have a few posts in store. Now, to the business of the day. I’ve been meaning to write about this for some time now; but I never really got the chance to do that. A lot of people think I hate love because of my poems, because I hate Valentine’s day, and because I never talk about love or say anything nice about it.
I’ve been called names; a lot, because supposedly I don’t show love like people expect or like they want me to; because I barely care about things, and because somehow I act like a robot or I’m cold. Maybe the not caring part is true because I just can’t bother myself with irrelevant things. But, it all comes down to one question which I’d love to answer and hopefully, no one can ask me that again: “Why do you hate love?“
I hate Valentine’s day; and that has been established on my post; WHAT IS VALENTINE?? If you’ve read that post, you’ll know how I feel about Valentine. But Valentine isn’t love! My poems are a representation of my emotions; what I think, and feel, and I’ve explained “why I write” on several posts; one of which includes THE TRUTH YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT. And, once again, my poems aren’t love. They might be about love; but they’re not love. And lastly, I don’t talk about love because that’s my personal business; I don’t see why I have to talk about my personal, relationship, and private life with anyone who asks about it.
With that said, my answer to the question is “no“; I don’t hate love. Do I see love differently? Yes; but I don’t hate it. I have a lot of love songs; I watch movies about love, I congratulate happy couples as well. If I hated love, those things would literally make me sick; metaphorically.
What is my idea on love? I’m a writer; and I feel like we need poetry in every area of our lives because while people study medicine, law, engineering, and so on, poetry is what keeps this world sane; we need poetry. But I don’t think we actually need love because people use it as an excuse to harm and hurt others. I see love as just a word that has lost it’s meaning over time. In the past, people would say “I love you” and mean it but now, people say it all the time just like they say “hey“; and they barely mean it. “I love this bag“, “I’m so in love with this shoe!“, and so on. The word “love” has almost lost it’s value in this world.
I don’t see love as something that’s important; I don’t hold it in a high esteem; and I almost don’t care about it. That doesn’t mean I hate it. I might feel like it doesn’t exist but I know it does. Saying I hate it is just like saying I won’t get married someday; or I don’t believe in marriage. My beliefs are different from every other person’s belief; but that doesn’t make me cold hearted or a love hater. Maybe love isn’t something we’re all destined to feel; maybe things happen that end up changing our perception of things. Maybe in reality, love is just a fantasy that we think we should feel. Maybe it’s just an idea that isn’t even real.
I can’t change my idea of things because I say what I think. Fairytales don’t exist; and true love is a myth. They’re things we see on tv just so we believe them but; those actors and actresses just make money to portray things that aren’t even real. I can’t share my thoughts without seeming angry which is weird; but you get my point. Bottom line, this is my idea of love. You don’t have to agree with me; and you don’t have to go against me either because our thoughts are different. And, I’m a firm believer in “nothing lasts forever“. But, in the end, I don’t hate love; and I’m not against it either. I just don’t worship or revere it like people expect me to.
