A Valentine Day Bummer

So much is said of true love
And how it is sure to last
I don’t believe all that fluff
I have wisely moved on passed

Love lasts for a short, sweet time
Until he sees the baggage
The one he called a goddess
Has turned into a cabbage

He looks passed the roses red
And sees only prickly thorns
Her halo just seems to slip
And now all he sees are horns

The one who made her heart beat
Now just makes her want to die
All that he see are her faults
No matter how hard she tries

Perhaps I am just morose
I ran out of pills today
Tomorrow may be different
Love might be here to stay!

    Of course I believe in true love. I love my hubby....Of course..having said that, we must realize that sometimes love is not just a is a decision. We chose to love because we have made a commitment. That's just as much Love as anything else. Also...true love is found in its source...God, and is reflected in the words of I Corinthians 13. Sometimes the fervor and passion comes and goes...but underneath it all is love! :)

    I can tell you it exists, twenty one years and counting. I also know what it feels to have my heart broken. I am sorry if this is where you are right now. Few words help when you are feeling this way. Hugs Rick

    We've all loved and lost, Eileen, but still...true love is real...just that we don't all love as we should. Great write you have here. Thanks for reading mine. Always, Annalise
