I Love the Beach but Not the Sand (and Other Human Contradictions)
I love to travel but not to fly.
I love hello but not goodbye.
I love to dance but not to sweat.
I love to hope but not regret.
I love the fire but not the burn.
I love desire but not the yearn.
I love the taste but not the binge.
I love the truth but not the cringe.
I love the freedom, but not the cost.
I love the having, but not the loss.
I love the mystery, but not the unknown.
I love my solitude, but not my alone.
I love the bond but not the break.
I love to love but not to ache.
I love the image but not the lie.
I love to feel but not to cry.
The truth of the matter is, when I pry -
I love to live, but not to die.
