If you don't know how love alters you 

it must seem strange to hear it described as contradictory 

 

If you do know- if you have this scar,  this imprint

you smile when someone tells you about their history 

 

You might talk about what you hate, what you miss, what you cannot forget

to an audience of people who can't parse the conflicting syllables 

 

Is there some drink that makes you wince,

but you still crave it ?

 

Are there rollercoasters you ride,

even though they leave you queasy for an hour?

 

But maybe you have lead a life without someone who made you crazy

If so, I pity you   

 

honestly
