Poetry: Sadness saddened sadness sadly through its sad eyes

The hardened feel sadness hardly.

The saddened feel hardness rarely.

The loved feel sadness deeply.

The sadness feels love in itself.

The boldness of sadness is unknowable.

The lovingness of sadness is palpably present.

Any emptiness is not real emptiness,

as only love can dig out of itself its sadness.

Sadness is a place, and not a direction.

Sadness comes ready-made to wear it.

Sadness doesn’t depend on anything.

Sadness is just love turned inside out.

Sadness brings meaning to lost love.

We all contain sadness within us all.

If we’re sad, it’s because sadness loved,

but it loved so deeply it became sadness.

  1. It would be sad if you jumped from such a high cliff into sadness, but found only sadness there, but if you saw love still there too, you would be lifted back to your hilltop within your own time then too, after a brief swim around in your sadness, or is it love’s sadness too.

    Sadness lives within love, but is only felt by yourself when you turn love inside out, as otherwise love tends to cover-all over you with itself, until, you pocketise it and realise that it is ok to live in one of its rooms alone for a minute, or two, or three, of which sadness is but one such room.

    All emotions are states/rooms within love, in my opinion.

  2. sadness is love turned inside out.

    that is an incredibly interesting line that if it were an ocean i could dive in from a high cliff.

    Is sadness love turned inside out? I wonder.
    Sadness in and of itself can bring love to a person. It is a state of love.

      • we grow stronger when we embrace the sadness both within us, bur also around us. The world can be both a good and bad place at the same time. As if the very essence of life is the intricate machinery of balance.

        • If all is oneness as the Tao says, where does the need for balance fit into this?

          Oneness balances itself on the toes of God, and never falls off unless God kicks it off, and then it stays around infinitely annoying him, until he finally retrieves it, once more again, and his little game is completed, once more again too.

        • Balance walks along its beam precariously at times to stay still walking, without falling off.

          The immune system serves us when balanced, but unbalanced it can destroy us, as it does with multiple sclerosis, for example.

        • Yes, balance is important, but perhaps real love never requires balance, as it is just needed to be allowed to be just itself in us, and yet the imbalance of everything else besides love can unbalance love in us too, when we allow these other things to control love’s free expression in us too.

          • i have lost many dogs over the years. There is a piece of me that continues with them on their future journey.

            I have to rebuild the piece given in a new way.
