Poetry Day 3 - Opposites

Keeping the ball rolling on our Poetry Month series, today's activity had to do with "Opposites."

Choose two things that are opposites. The poem whould be two or four lines long and the first two and last two lines should rhyme . . .

My poem for today is:

The opposite of love
Does not come from above
It comes from deep within
And can turn your heart to tin.

Indifference can be too much to bear
From someone who gave you so much care
You’d rather have the passion of hate
Than the coldness they’ve shown you as of late.

Ugh . . . OK, it's not my best, but it's a start . . .

"And can turn your heart to tin." That's funny I look forth to seeing more of your poetry.
