Redemption

Oh, for the day that love found me.


Oh, for the day that love found me
Cupid fired and raised a wave
It dressed me in insanity
Took away, more than it gave

Reason went, he could not stand
The wild thoughts of my mind
No longer was he in command
No reason could he find

Soon after, Sight, he marched afar
His eyes could see no more
Beyond the beauty that you are
The love that I adore

Then Hearing too no longer fought
The shop, he shut, he closed
Of telling me what others thought
And, what they supposed

Emotion was more lenient
For he had changed his tack
With urges disobedient
He placed me back on track

And teacher Time did fair me well
To spend my life with you
He kept me under cupid’s spell
And showed me what is true

So, for the day that love found me
All that I can say
Along with this insanity
Gave more than took away.

    Superb creativity the way you've used insanity as the metaphor for a "soulmate" . Amazing. All the lines are magnificent but the end is really my favorite.

    You seemed to have been on a very up-and-down journey, my friend. Each little stanza was like a little life lesson that you learned from. When love finds you, you feel your freedom slipping away... but then with time you feel MORE free to do the things that really matter. I enjoyed this poem of yours... and I thank you so much for reading so much of my work!

    I felt all the chemicals kicking in Richard, while reading your lovely poem of "redemption". I'm going to start from the bottom up. After all the ending is what I enjoyed the best. -The way love took over and added on to the sanity. lol, isn't that what love is. .JK. I love the way love found you, and gave you more than you had before sanity was only a word with no (IN) in it.. LOL :-) This was a nice Redemption poem, I enjoyed the way you went from only YOU and involved it all into something and someone else. Love is, nice when God, gives you that one person for the rest of your life. My parents have been under cupids spell till this very day. This is a very sweet poem. thanks for the swift story of true loves meaning found between the lines in your poem... always~ LINDA
