Forever

Forever

A Poem by CM-Stars

“Is love forever?”,
I silently ask.
I sit and wonder
As I think of my past.

I’ve seen love
Saw its effects.
Have I felt love?
This I reflect.

I can recall
Feelings of bliss.
Memories of happiness.
Even a sweet kiss.

But these images
Scatter away.
Replaced with a pain
That grows each day.

“No, love is not forever”,
I silently say.
Love is temporary.
It will always decay.

I enjoyed the introspective aspect of this poem. There are true stories behind these words. The visceral pain in the end kept you from believing that love couldn't be forever, and that proves that pain is much more powerful emotion that is conveyed very nicely in this poem. Nice work. :)

Your poem is a great thought and your question is a wise one. The answer lies within what love is founded upon and if one builds upon the right foundation.

Such a sad story of love, but sometimes it stays within one person more so then another person. Love is real if the right people believe in it.

The comforts of Love can be forever... it’s the infatuation that fades over time :)

That sweetness of love isn't eternal but neither is the sting of pain. Nice poem! A couple of typos:
it's > its
affects > effects

Thank you for your thoughtful comment and catching those typos. It’s been corrected. ☺️
The last stanza of your poem is painfully sweet. It rings with despair and painful realization. I do believe love is eternal but the force of it can change its focus from time to time. Great poem.
