A Tanka on the most compelling emotions on Earth


Love, Hate and Vendetta

Love, Hate, Vendetta,
Are all consuming passions.
I would rather like
To consume myself in love
Than in hate or vendetta...

i would like the same for hate is like a balde knife that we think it hurts the other side when it's eating us up inside and Vendetta is a pointless battle.

thanks

Three deadly passions so often linked together until they consume the very host that gives them shelter, excellent penning Zoya.

Beautifully written, these few lines hold so much meaning. Love should be the most powerful attribute and overcome all feelings of hate. This held such wisdom. Well done with this. :-)

Being consumed in love is the same as being consumed in hate or vendetta...u gotta care enough to hate someone...There's a very thin line between the two..
I believe you love and hate from the same place--your heart!
so both emotions are equally powerful, equally consuming
We just gotta decide which one we are going to have for which person..
And then there are times when you love so much you start hating yourself for being consumed in love.
This is my philosophy.
Do you understand it?

Along with lust, attachment and envy we really walk a tightrope of passions, well written!

When it comes to passion, all passions are dangerous. Anyway life is a beauty out of odds. Love is great.

Hate and vendetta.... they will eat your soul til there's nothing left... I do prefer sending love... hate only steals your energy and I think my energy is better used in other ways than on negative thinking...

Good writing here!
