Indifference as concrete poetry :


Writing "yes" but thinking "no".

Want to see other ones ? Take a look at The Star or This Is A Poem.



Love is rarely placid, choosing instead  

Dizzy highs or  crushing lows 


When we love 

it is never wisely 


We make mistakes

large ones, ones we regret


Love makes every argument louder,

every harsh word sharper


So when we don't care

or force ourself to stop caring, it is not about animosity 


Indifference is a room without windows

a concert hall without instruments 


Silence is a statement

not a question 













It's better to feel pain, than nothing at all

The opposite of love - indifference

The Lumineers

He . . . is far from such indifference and equity as ought and must be in judges which he saith I assign. Sir T. More.


Absence of anxiety or interest in respect to what is presented to the mind; unconcernedness; as, entire indifference to all that occurs.

Indifference can not but be criminal, when it is conversant about objects which are so far from being of an indifferent nature, that they are highest importance. Addison.
