Some say

Some say love comes softly and sweetly, Like the spilling of ink it drip drip drips... Until it carves out a place in your heart and tightly grips. Some say love comes unexpectedly, like a flash. It burns brightly and can consume until all is gone, Or it can help you rise and find your new dawn. Some say love makes angels of men. It brings out their best—kindness, gentleness, awe— And causes men to remain rather than withdraw. Some say love makes men turn to devils. They become jealous and haunted when they find That love does not always stay and is never really blind. Some say love brings out the fool in us all. The fool who will love after love has gone, Realizing they were only ever a pawn. Some say love is lost.... Some say I’m a fool for wanting you back... Some say I shouldn’t try to join you... But they don’t know what I suffer Knowing I am the one who pushed you over the edge, I am the fool who couldn’t keep the pledge. 07 March 2020 Written for "Clown at the Abyss" contest Sponsored by Kai Michael Neumann

Thank you Arturo Michael! I've been trying new rhyming schemes recently.
