L.O.V.E. AIN'T....

L.O.V.E. AIN'T....

A Poem by SINDE
"

Love ain't at the tip of Eros' arrow...

"

Love ain't at the tip of Eros' arrow,

Often brooding over imaginary sorrows,

Violently being thrust into illusion,

Enslaved by whatever causes the soul's contusion...

 

Love ain't just a feeling, mere emotion,

Owing one good in immense proportion,

Vain is our engineered definition,

Erroneous yet receiving recognition...

 

Falling in love? Give me a break,

Love ain't fluffy, rosy nor silky,

Nor a multi-tier wedding cake,

Plus, falling only makes our bones creaky,

Or even cause a concussion,

Ouch!

So take precaution,

Try walking into love...if it exists,

But keep the keys to the exit...

 

Is love blind?

No, nay, never...

So lady if you don't mind

Try visiting a shrink whenever

You can't let go of your lying, unkind,

Womanizing husband...

You see

Love ain't quick-sand

In which you involuntarily sink

And like an armour with no chink

'tis perfect...

Love can most certainly suffice

In brightening a future so bleak

And uncertain like the gambler's dice,

So babe , when you feel sick,

And heart-broken

By deceit

(Which is in no wise love's token),

Do desist

From blaming love

'cause love's roots are above....

                                     Sinde.

agree with you, this is your best piece yet!
'Love ain't at the tip of Eros' arrow...'
this is the kind of piece that grabs you by the collar and makes you sit up in your seat.
'Love ain't just a feeling ,mere emotion ,
Owing one good in immense proportion ,
Vain is our engineered definition
Erroneous yet receiving recognition...'
plenty of meaning in your trademark acronym style. nice. and a world which has forgotten the definition of love, this is a timely reminder that the imposters we embrace as 'Love' don't deserve such a lofty title. how often do we mistake Lust and Obsession for the real deal?

Is love blind?
No ,nay ,never...
So lady if you don't mind
Try visiting a shrink whenever
You can't let go of your lying ,unkind ,
Womanizing husband...

...what can I add? Love's roots are above...awesome write bro, this is an automatic 100 and straight into my favourites without a second thought!

This was a great piece of writing. I agree with you on this piece. Sometomes love isn't what it seems. You did a really nice job on this. Thanks for sharing.

If you can say long from now I have never intentionally broken a heart.Nor cheated on a mate.Or given reason to doubt to anyone I have loved.Then you can look in the mirror and see a man staring back at you.

This is fantastic. Not only beautifully crafted, but honest, wise, insighful. You speak with clarity and courage. Refreshing!

You open the door to many questions with this poem. Love should be the best days of a life. Human twist love to their advantage and use love to control and hurt. Which is sad. A lot of wisdom in your words. Thank you for the outstanding poetry.
