Heartbreak and vengeance make the perfect cocktail for any juicy story, but so does the concept of a twisted illusion of reality. Stories of passion such as, Evona Darling written by Silas House and My Ex-Husband written by Gabriel Spera, are both examples of stories that give the reader the equation of love and hate entwined together with the tainted sense of reality. House descriptively writes a story about the passion of a mother’s love whose heart has been taken away by her child’s father, who through suspicious friends got Evona’s custody stripped away from her. On the other hand, Spera creates her poem in her perspective of being married to a man that betrayed her and played his cards of deceit. Both stories were passionately written after love had partaken, but the fairy tale ends had come upon them.
Is love always a positive influence? The poems “A Love Song” by William Williams and “Love’s Philosophy” by Percy Shelley both discuss love. “A Love Song” is full of negative imagery, and suggests that love changes how one sees the world for the worse. In contrast the poem “Love’s Philosophy” uses positive diction and beautiful imagery to convey the idea that love is something to be desired by all. Both authors convey these themes using the literary devices of diction, imagery, and tone.
“Love is when the other person 's happiness is more important than your own”-H Jackson Brown Jr.This idea exhibits the importance you give towards someone’s love is more necessary than yours.

We can see that the quote is demonstrating the impatient approach towards love in within someone increases when beauty does not surround you.Despite this story using a various approach towards manipulating us to the theme, the poem uses literary and symbolic devices to exhibit the poet 's life. However, in the poem, the poet uses the ocean to show that all of his emotions are mixed to form one big vast area.

Love and a Question, a shattering love, by Robert Frost is a poem that shows a love that seems so perfect it can´t be ruined in a matter of time.

The use of iambic pentameter in poetry is usually to signify grand emotions. The poet’s use of iambic pentameter when questioning the meaning of love in the first line suggests that love is a grand, positive emotion. However, as the poem progresses, the metrical feet used also changes to iambic tetrameter. For example, the line ‘it is a fire, it is a coal’ is written in iambic tetrameter. By downsizing the metrical feet in the poem, the poet suggests that love often falls short of expectations, especially when unrequited.

Love. The sole word generates depictions of passionate acts, entwined lovers, romantic glimpses, murmured expressions of compliment, and an all-embracing sentiment that exceeds the corporeal. In Robert Browning’s “Porphyria’s Lover’ and E.E Cummings “somewhere i have never travelled, gladly beyond” love is theorized as a play of power where lovers assume active and passive roles based on their dominance within the relationship. By juxtaposing Browning’s passive male speaker who cannot accept the strong agency that his lover occupies and must see to switch their positions through murder alongside Cummings’ passive male speaker’s marvel over a mystifying power that his beloved has over him, the poems challenge the stereotypical ideals of passive femininity and active masculinity. In “Porphyria’s Lover,” Browning makes it evident that love is a play of power.
17/PELA/001 Self-referentiality in Amoretti Spenser’s Amoretti (1595) is one of the best records of Elizabethan Petrarchan love sonnet tradition. The sonnets serve the purpose of personal revelation about his courtship with Elizabeth Boyle. Along with the expression of love, Spenser’s sonnets highlight the centrality of art (Brown). The paper attempts to study instances of self-referentiality in Amoretti that emphasize the element of ‘metapoetry’, wherein the poems explore the craft of its own creation and are conscious of being written. The speaker of the Amoretti is a fictionalized “poet-lover-worshipper” (Kellogg).
