Never Love Again

Sometimes I wonder if love is truth
The error of my ways in my youth
The price of love is too steep a toll
You give your heart. They take your soul
They say when love is on the wing
You can hear the bluebirds sing
Love can take away your breath
But then again, so can death
I’ll never answer love’s deceitful call
They build you up to watch you fall
Letter’s written with poisoned pen
I will never love again
On our knees for love we plead
Love arrives to watch us bleed
Nothing grows without the rain
The cost of love is undying pain
Trapped inside this lion’s den
I will never love again.

fictional-- for Sami's contest

I can feel a soul tortured by loves' pleasure, and loves' pain here. Well crafted. - Chuck

This is just wonderful all the way through and although this poem is fictional, you speak so elegantly as if you had the experiece , the pain. Remarkable your words through this finely tuned piece of art!

Great writing, it seemed so believeable until you said it was fiction, of course. Thank goodness your are not seeing real love this way. I love the "poison pen" that is an awesome touch. Good luck in the contest. Smiles from Lolita

"letters written with poisoned pen, I will never love again" I was gripped by these 2 lines. I very much like this poem. And I am very relieved that it is unreal. ~ Andrea Bianca Reyes

Never love again, Vince? I can't say that about myself with certainty...especially if a gorgeous chick comes into view, then I act like a lovestruck teenager again, ha ha. Jest aside, this is well written and full of philosophical undertone, with smooth, unlabored rhyming. Reminds me so much of the old Nazareth/Everly Brothers song 'Love Hurts'. Very well done, Admiral. Fred

I must agree with Christopher on finding love again, even when we have given up hope. It happened to me; it can happen to you. "Love can take away your breath But then again, so can death" is a powerful and sadly true statement, Vince. Very profound perspective on love's pain.
