My Dear,
You’re a Hurricane.
You Came to Tear Me Apart.
. . .but Flooded my Mind.

My Dear,
You’re a Snow Leopard.
You’re Beautiful from Afar.
. . .but Hunted my Heart.

My Dear,
You are the Star Dust.
A Beautiful Mystery.
. . .but Bewitched my Soul.

Hi poets, it’s time for my 100th poem, and I wanted to do something special. So I wanted to give my readers the chance to choose what I will write for my 100th poem. I received 3 suggestions, and although they are pretty random, I went with it and it was fun to do it this way!

The most best part about this poem is that it can have multiple meanings. It can be about someone whose love was powerful and overtook you in a good way, or someone that bewitched you with love in a bad way. Or maybe somewhere in between, the one you hate to love or hate to love. It’s up to you to decide for yourself what this means to you. . . Like star dust, this poem, itself, is full of mystery.

Shout outs to Kajal the Mermaid and Phillip Knight Scott for their recommendations for this poem!

You Didn’t Mean to Hurt Me
