Love Me Knot (2015 APR PAD - Day 7)

 He loves me.  He loves me not.”  (– from a game of French origin)  
“Hate is not the opposite of love; apathy is.” – Rollo May



Love Me Knot

Apparently paradoxical, but
admittedly a trilogy,
this riddle fully formed.

Magician’s trickery protects, reveals this
three-sided coinage – a puzzle
perpetuated by prestidigitation.

Clearly, only a conjurer could explain
how hate is apt to flip to love,
while love’s flip side is utter indifference.
