A Poem by Belle Starr
"

Can a heart be smart?

"

Such a simple word,

Catastrophic effect.

Many texts written

On this painful subject.

 

Why not change

Sad written verse?

Being in love is not

Always a curse!

 

Glimpse the yearning

From a differing view.

Loving for some

Is simple to do.

 

Why should we need

The same love returned?

Hurt injures others.

Love must be relearned.

 

Some damaged souls

Have no love to give.

Our loving hearts are

Their reasons to live.

 

Glory should be found

In the offering placed.

For in our warm nature,

The feeling is graced.

 

Rejoice in the affection

You have deep inside.

For love is a blessing

In our hearts to reside.

Thank you.
For reminding me that my love
is a gift and a blessing.
I’ve been debating it as a curse lately...but it’s so rare to see true love...(hint: not sex).
I will ponder this some more.
But more positively.

So very true! Tender, meaningful and excellent writing.

I did notice one typo in this line:
'Glimpse the yeaning.'
"Yeaning' should be 'yearning'.
Quick, teacher, fix it before the class notices! :)

To quote my friend Belle, I loved it.

For stanza five in this poem, it has a good meaning to it. I really appreciate the fact that this poem was made, for other poems for heartbroken, this has a very good reflection on how love can be fixed, even if it is broken. 100/100 for you. Good job on this, and I hope you can make more poems like this.

Love really does need to be relearned nowadays and a pretty, sentimental note such as this is well on the right track to reminding us. Lovely!

Thank you for reading my poem. It really meant a lot to me.
the poem which describes love from a romantic angle that it is not a curse that I agree no matter how much pain a person endures, it does not stop him from loving someone because of the need to feel the love and the sense of belonging which makes us human in every sense of the word.

you are very much welcome
I'm not sure about the grammar of the last two lines, but this poem as a whole is wonderful! Very well thought-out and constructed, always building up to the climactic zenith. Much enjoyed! Well done! (Stanzas 4 + 5 spoke to me.....wow!)

HA! You are awesome!!!
Each stanza is beautiful and I think you’ve gotten the idea across very well.

Stanza 6 is my favorite, but I also really like stanza 7. It’s refreshing to read about the truely selfless nature of love and just how beautiful such a thing is.

Absolutely loved reading this!

Well, I am glad to be on ANY list!! LOL
It's very pure about emotion of love. Touching heart and well hoping to be return to sad. And the last stanza absolutely well defined is blessing and rejoice
