Bed of roses and thorns

Ooh man, life could well 
be a bed of roses
If only love alone 
sprinkled from the hoses.

If only love flowed like 
an endless stream
If only love didn't end 
like a dream.

In all certainty, the 
antonym of love
plunges you in the bed 
of thorns
Much unlike the agile yet 
peaceful dove
love grows weeds, rust 
and horns!

I so pity the lovelorn, the 
lovesick, the forlorn
whose lover flew out 
the window last morn

But I know too of pure 
loves that outlast the 
storms
for one, they didn't 
begin in high school 
dorms.

They weren't 
instantaneous and 
impulsive loves for sure
Less whimsical,
and within the bounds 
of the marital bond
their love tis bound to 
endure.
In conjugal bliss's 
hammock
fickle lovers cannot rock.
For without holy 
matrimony
Is merry go round love's 
agony

Your message rings true- that true love is not just about sex. Its a far deeper thing that bonds two souls together. A pleasure reading this fine poem.. A7

Oh woah u got out another meaningful conclusion from my poem though what I was trying to convey here is that true love is what is present in the years after marriage as opposed to fickle premarital loves. And marriage is the best way of love as opposed to premarital love affairs. My observations from many cases.

I think that friendship is what makes love last. Without a strong bond a relationship will never last. I really enjoyed this poem. You expressed your passion and devotion very, very well. Really good work!...Thank you for the great comments. I appreciate it very much!
