Wheel of Love

Wheel of Love

A Poem by Jofer Serapio
"

bored yet again

"

 

Round and round it goes

Where it stops, nobody knows

Love is never really certain

Until down goes the stage curtain

 

Lovers are puppets toyed by Cupid

Actions taken are all but insipid

Risking everything for a single plea

Juliet is who? Romeo is me?

 

Love is blind, all bards sing

I’ll give you my heart, my every thing

Down goes Romeo, failing Juliet

Down goes echo, paying Adonis’ debt

 

Up and down, the story flows

Who loves who, only time knows

Round and round, the wheel continues to spin

Ardour ends not but this is this poem’s fin

this is a great poem it has a jingle to it and alot of poems do not have that today, i relate to this line "Juliet is who? Romeo is me?" the most....keep doin what your doin you will change lives

id have to say this is quite a good poem, but i did notice that you used things in sertain verses that have been used before, such as: "Where it stops, nobody knows". i understand as a writer that when so consumed in writing writers tend to accidentally repeat words, verses, or even stanzas that have been either used by themselves before in other workor used by other writers. i try my best to use the least amount of words, verses, ect. that either i have used or someone else has used. id have to say again, you did write a very good piece of work. keep it up, but dont be afraid of challenging yourself and make up new word, verses, ect.

"Love is blind, all bards sing"
Is it all 'birds' sing?

"I'll give you my heart, my every thing"

I think that it should be 'everything' but you can check to make sure.
I like the poem. It reminds me of being on a carousel of love or something like that.
Love All, Mejasha

Nice allusions to other works. It makes this sound very intelligent.
