The Opposite Of Love

The Opposite of Love

Lori Lieberman

The opposite of love
It isn’t what I’ve always thought
It’s not the jaws of hatred tearing pieces of my heart
It has no hold upon me
Chains to pull or push against
The opposite of loving you
Is nothing
Indifference

You’re the opposite of love to me
It’s like you don’t exist
A boat on the horizon
Disappearing in the mist
A debit on an ATM
A meaningless expense
Not worth your common dollar
Or my last twenty cents
Last twenty cents…
Indifference

You’re the opposite of love to me
There’s no place in my heart
You could pass me on a crowded street
And I wouldn’t know who you are
You slowly chipped away at me
Till there was nothing left
And how you are and what you do
I couldn’t care less
Indifference

I’ve got nothing more to lose
Nothing can be won
There’s nothing you can do
That you haven’t already done
I’ve got nothing left to give
There’s nothing you can take
Once a heart’s already broken
It can’t break

The opposite of love
It isn’t what I always thought
It’s not the jaws of hatred
Tearing pieces of my heart
It has no hold upon me
Chains to pull or push against
The opposite of loving you
Is nothing
indifference
