it was a love poem,wasn't it?

A Poem by Holly Mason

tragedy happened today
it was a love poem, wasn't it

now a war write 
and I have succumbed, numb

social educate dashes away
reverie suspended 

it was a love poem, wasn't it
with no side to choose

fighting is for squares
because circles have no sides

a love triangle maybe
but that is between three

not the masses that disenagrate  
with so much hate

I was reading a beautiful poem
it was a love poem ,wasn't it?

war writings in a cave
left on a wall for all to find

to find and learn from
words meshed together

a circle of words with no sides
only eyes reading in wonderment

yes it was a love poem
until an edge was added

peaceful pieces of life
wrapped into a love poem

there is something vaguely familiar about this format....wonderfully penned, no matter what the message.

It doesn't take much, does it, to make war of peace, or peace of war... Love this, Holly!

thank you teach...you the woman*)
Such a stirring, bittersweet song that transcends life and love.. You've given that depth to words that play and dance off the meanings of each other.. so perfectly profound.

thank you for your kind and thoughtful words...truly
Ain't that always the way, this speaks volumes Holly....love/hate/war, they seem to mix and match so easily, but in a love poem, not so much. Nice one my friend.

Awwwww, love and war!? Fancy that. I think they come as a buy one get one free. Lol.

Love how you make it humorous even although its quite a serious topic.

"fighting is for squares / because circles have no sides"

that line says so much...

love poems become battle grounds...

fighting within the syllables...

why?

it is such a shame...

really good poem, Holly.

we need to shave those edges off...and make the love poem smooth again.
