You Are Someone I Cannot Love

Lenina, I cannot deny I was attracted to you. Knowing you has brought me elation. You appeared to have feelings for me that were true. However, this relationship must have a cessation. I do not understand the ways of this civilization. Your kind of love has filled me with consternation. What I used to know is what I have missed. Our kind of love is different on the reservation. How could you fall in love with a non-conformist? For these reasons, please cross me off your list. I cannot accept these promiscuous ways. I was hoping for you to love only me. What strange bedfellows we keep nowadays. Life in this London appears as an anomaly. From all of these irregularities, I must flee. Based on the novel “Brave New World” by the late Aldous Huxley October 9, 2012

    Robert, I enjoyed this verse and its rejection of love's defiant ways. Cynthia

    This is very innovative poetry, never read that novel but could catch the gist of it from your poem. I like this very much and good luck if for a contest. thanks for stopping by.

    Cool how you base this off the life of someone in a novel. In some ways you are like me when you invent poetry for a world not your own! Good luck with your poem. She is sure to like it. Oh, and I think you are right about the Green acres thing.

    Robert; This is good, but i thought that you were writing about a real person, that you could not love. Thanks for sharing. lucilla
