The first line is effective. Edit the poem a bit ;) few typos hehe. Its interesting how you threw in ignorance between love and insanity. then you close the chapter of ignorance saying it can't exist. What i mean is, you mention ignorance can "enhance" the flavor of bliss. Then you say question it. Then you talk about instincts of love in this cold world. Then you say love is a "cure" for what? Insanity? Life? The flow of the poem's thought process is disruptive, or perhaps i am unable to convey your message :). Please do explain.
I freestyle whats on my mind at the time which will explain any typos...sorry. The thought process is suppose to be disruptive, so I'm glad that you picked up on that. The poem is more about asking questions rather than being clear on the idea of love.
Is loving yourself more important than being capable of loving someone else. most of you will answer yes. however try to understand it from the point of view from someone who has lost everything which they loved and recieved love in return. A person who has had nobody show faith in their ability apart from themselves.A person who has been madly deeply in love against his natural instinct, only to realise it was a costly illusion which set them back and weaken an already fragile heart.
You get the drift...having be be emotionally, physically independant in a cold world.
Ignorance enhancing the flavour of bliss...not having to grow up so hard, so the heart is softer and more accesible to an attack of love. Ignorance is bliss, to mean can mean two things. Being ignorant to love can allow a man to go through life and not feel true pain. No love no pain. Also the ignorance of not understanding true pain of others ( if not experienced yourself), the pain of loosing a loved one and having regrets for example. This type of ignorance will allow anyone to be able to fall in love again and again.
Some are not so "lucky" if you want to call it that, to be able to fall in love so easily. This is the basic message whim The poem is trying to portray.
