Poem - Love as the Source

Meša Selimovic is credited with a quote that begins with “Everyone says love hurts, but that is not true”. The poem “Love as the Source” is inspired by his words.

Love as the Source

If I say I love
then feel hurt
I’m confused
about the heart
rejection pains
loss inflicts
envy spites
loneliness same
these are not
love’s embrace
so confused
by ego’s tricks
by lust’s urge
each so false
the truth concealed
of life’s heal
love is the thing
revealed at last
if there is hurt
do not expect
you will find
love as the source.

“Everyone says love hurts, but that is not true. Loneliness hurts. Rejection hurts. Losing someone hurts. Envy hurts. Everyone gets these things confused with love, but in reality love is the only thing in this world that covers up all pain and makes someone feel wonderful again. Love is the only thing in this world that does not hurt.”
– Meša Selimovic
