The opposite of love

The opposite of love

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

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

of fawn-eyed credulity,
our impotence exposed,

truth, apparently 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.
