The opposite of love

The opposite of love                                                                              

Love asks no questions, You said.
Doubt, apparently, is love’s opposite,

a rocky, futile path to truth
avoided by the highest form

of fawn-eyed credulity.
Our impotence exposed, truth found out

when inquiries cease altogether.
Not hatred then, not indifference,

but doubt is the opposite of love,
love a blitheness achieved

only by the death of the lover
asking no questions from the bottom of a grave.

O child of God, whosoever will
lose his life for My sake shall find it.
