An Anti-Love Poem



Seems love's a very good topic for a poem People know the subject really well We all have separate thoughts about love Those that are obsessed, you can tell Women as they age can take-it-or-leave-it With men, it's a real different ball game From puberty to the age of a centenarian Their loins are constantly aflame So how do we solve this obvious disparity This age old problem that exists The only time it gets to be a real problem Is when she says no and he insists Arguments ensue and nothing gets solved Both go to sleep feeling angry We must understand the needs of the other Been going on for centuries, frankly This is not exactly your typical love poem An anti-love poem so to speak It will never be like a fairy tale happening But it still can bring you to the peak © Jack Ellison 2013

    True love at my house is: who gets up at the break of dawn to feed Dragon, the penguins, puppies, and kitties... their breakfast... The other stuff works it way out on it's own... Whoever lets the other sleep in... solves a lot of that, too... As in whoever does that for the other... truely deserves a big kiss... Great motivation...Er... To Say...LOL

    The sad part is, many still insist love should BE a fairy tale. How lonely & unsatisfied those hearts will always be. The 3rd stanza is the most spot on thing I've read about love yet. Very, very well done...
