Love, What A Concept

Love, What A Concept

A Poem by tmasse
"

I will leave this one up to you

"

Love,

What a concept.

Some folks say true love does not exist,

I beg to differ.

The reality of it is that although it exists,

It is one sided.

I found true love and I shall stay

Until my very dying day,

Even though

I already know

we shall never ever be…

Love,

what a concept.

Some folks say it is a burden,

This is true.

The reality is to hard to bear,

For this burden is one sided.

I found true love and I shall stay

Until my very dying day,

Even though

I already know

You and i feel differently...

Love,

What a concept.

Some folks say distance makes the heart grow fonder,

This can be true.

The reality is hard to bear,

For at times this burden is one sided.

I found true love and I shall stay

Until my very dying day,

Even though

I already know

That I will never lose you…

For i will never have you…

Love,

What a concept.

Some folks say that to live is pain,

This i most definitely true.

Though, is it not amazing,

What changing one letter to a word can do…

Live, Love Perhaps Without One There Is No Other…

I found true love and I shall stay

Until my very dying day,

Even though

I already know

That death's day may be growing closer...

Author's Note

tmasse
Need help with last line people are misinterpreting it as hopeful when it is meant to be the opposite

old line used to be 'that that day may be growing closer...'

This is a very mature poem. I actually like the fact that you don't follow a rhyme scheme, it wouldn't fit the poem anyway. I also like the numerous repetitions you used, as they single out very well the feeling you put into writing this piece. It should not remain unsaid that this is not one of those ever-praising poems about love, but a more naturalist view of it, showing somehow its beauty in its pain. While it can ease so much pain, it can cause just as much, and as you beautifully put it, one sided.
Liked it a lot!
