Antithesis

I am no angel; I am no saint.
But you made me wanna be one.
I am best at words; worst at logic.
But you made me wanna learn.

You are antithetical of me.
A rundown of what I loath.
You give me tough love.
Expressed sternly.

But as one we loved,

A love that cannot be broken,

Even when we part.

  2. Wow! I love this poem. I would have loved to expound more on this if my English teacher would ask me back in school 🙂

    I can feel the love and the sadness
