A theory of love

A poem based on Hegel’s theory. Hope you like it, tell en what you think about it 💜

By IsaíasPublished 2 months ago 1 min read


How lovely it was

to fall in love with you.

Love at first sight some

might say, and I

would agree.

There is no other way for me

to explain how much your presence

filled me with joy.

Oh god, I loved you

since the very beginning.

How could I not?

Was it your perfect smile, your

warm personality or was it

all in itself?

I was astonished,

didn’t see it coming, and

I did something that

I can no longer do.

I fell in love.


How stupid it was

to fall in love.

You had it coming

some might say, and

I would agree.

It was I who let you in,

I trusted someone I should not

and got hurt because of it.

Am I a fool?

I just wanted to love and be loved;

looks like I was asking for

far too much.

Oh god, let me at least

hate her.

Take off me (me)

this burdensome love. I, I

don’t want it anymore.

Was it foolish to love

… you?


Can one love without

hurting themselves too?

I dare say no.

To love is to be

vulnerable. Like it or not

that’s the truth.

Therefore, is it at least

worth it?

It is, for sure.

Loving you was no mistake

and breaking up too.

To say “our love ran out” would

be a lie.

What we lacked was not love,

it was in fact
