Best John Loving Iii Poems

+ Fav Poet


love is something that you should respect
for of all emotions it's worst harm is regret
it gives freely with no thought to object
from one to another hopeful prospect
something sacred that one should protect
and with deepest desire one should accept
but the dark side of love is that one can reject
for to give love, one's heart has to elect
love is not a thing that you can easily eject
it's tangled strings will slowly egress
lest love use it's power to hate and detest
or worst of all be defeated by distress
no, no, no, this thing love i must redress
give up too soon, no i protest
all this time that i have obsessed
it is for good reason i make this request
i will contest till i conquest if that is what you will
but prove to you this one thing; my love you cannot kill

    The complications of love.. Sometimes we complicate things too much instead of just let things run its course.. You made me laugh with your comment on my poem. Will have to show it to my friend ;)

    Excellent summation of a state well known, luckily never experienced hate and detest but surely have experienced all the rest! Here's to the love one cannot kill, here's to the joy despair and thrill! Big hugs Lizzie
