We Find Love

We Find Love

A Poem by realmwriter

Ever waiting for us to find it.

 

A heart apart, torn asunder

The sting of something gone

 

You felt it once

You miss it now

 

But for all the pain of not having known it

we still find love

 

We fall in and out

We scream, break and shout

We curse the day we met

 

But for all the fear of having never shown it

we still find love

 

It knows nothing of the things for which we attend it

Love is blind to the pain for which we offend it

 

Love cannot feel the fear we impart upon it

But there it always is, in the heart and soul

 

Ever waiting for us to find it.

Wise words from someone who must know love well. It really can be a scary thing, but it is persistent too thankfully. Beautifully articulated!

You're welcome. :)
Very nicely done ! I find your choice of color and shape interestingly fitting… I see a beautiful bottle with a "fragrance" waiting to be discovered.. like your poem...

It's nice when that happens. Bob Ross would call it "a happy accident".

That it is !
This had me thinking of that adage that 'it's better to have lost in love than never loved at all'...never an adage I've believed in, but I found plenty of observations in this piece that I did believe in very much...this is a lovely assessment of the ongoing search for love that we all undergo, and yet, more often than not, we're better off just waiting for it to come to us, as excruciating as that wait can be at times...the final six lines were especially profound for me...you've offered a unique way of looking at these things which I enjoyed very much...this is the kind of thing I would have loved to write myself, definitely a favourite...awesome....

Thank you very much my friend.
How true. Every line of this poem is true. We are afraid of the things that might happen to us once we fall in love but that doesn't prevent us from falling in love and suffering. Great write. :)

This is right on the money, can't think of a thing I would change.

Thank you so very much. That means a lot.
A magnificent sentiment. The power of repetition is ever present in this piece. Those who master the art well have a great advantage in the world of poetry. It brings memory into the work. Thank you for sharing.
