Doth love make you strong, or weak?

Doth love, someone’s life, also seek?

Doth love make you forget, or recollect, the past?

Doth love heal, or open up, wounds, vast?

Doth love give you a feeling of hope, or despair?

Doth love break hearts, or also repair?

Doth love spread joy, or gloom?

Doth it lead to boom, or doom?

Doth love secure the future, and the present?

For what purpose is it meant?

Doth love exonerate one, from all sins?

Doth love also lose, or always wins?

Is love today, a reality?

Or, is it just, a charity?

    I liked this one, though melancholic.

    The poem projects Love in two ways..and its really heart touching..
    Love is undefinable……but to be true LOVE has lost its meaning in today’s world…It has become more of a show off..

    I wonder why you have so many doubts about love! I don’t judge people by their qualifications, talent, power, position or possession in life or profession but only by love because is true; otherwise, it is not love at all!

    That’s a good poem…both the theme and the style of the poem are melancholic…it appears to imply that at least…a person in unrequited love might get more depressed…
    and i too have a question for you…
    Doth a poet ask or answer?…a question i mean…!
