This began as a response to Vampire'sMistress poem "Of Love and Hate". I was e-mailed by Marge who told me it deserved a thread of it's own so here it is. Marge: I want to thankyou for helping me out with the final line.

Of love; it's passions sweeter side,
It's gentleness like rain.
It soothes the hurting part of us,
And wins out over pain.

Of hate; it's bitter and rebuke,
It's passion gone awry.
It's hurtful and it does consume,
All that is close by.

In all we do within our lives,
These feelings we must temper.
For either left to run amuck,
Can kill with just a whimper.

Indeed Marilyn, wise words from a wise lady.
Love is the key, hate will never achieve anything only create more problems.
(HUGS) from your sister across the sea  

 Let your heart guide you. It whispers, so listen closely.

I can understand hate running amok causing problems but I've never seen the problem of too much love. Nicely written, Marilyn.

You definitely speak with wisdom here, Marilyn.  Exellent work, with a lot of truth to it.  Keep it up!

Like a gust of wind, ne'er trapped in a snare,
Like a lotus blossom, ne'er sprinkled by water,
Let me, like a unicorn, in solitude roam.*~ Hymn Of Buddha

Isis...Thankyou my sister. They are words to live by.

Rainbow...I understand how you feel. (whimpering myself)

Mike...Too much of anything can hurt. Love left umtempered can become obsession and obsession causes as much pain as hate.

Krista..Thanks for reading.  

Ruth...Thankyou for your words my friend.

Sy....You are a sweet man and thanks for reading.
