Dear Love

It’s said, and that’s across the Earth

if you are nice from day of birth

’til adulthood and while you grew

don’t search for love ’cause it finds you.

**

I’m just a little normal girl

helpful, sweet – almost a pearl;

and still, dear love, I won’t go fret

I’m fairly sure, we’ve never met!

**

Sometimes I searched, but mostly not

I thought you’re there – but then I got

abuse, and use, and pain and lies

I had more downs than I had highs.

**

I continue living, being good

be sweet and caring like I should.

Don’t know how long I still can cope

because I’m slowly losing hope.

**

All my life I did was look

how you met others – like in a book.

But when I showed up you weren’t there

I saw you run and could only stare.

**

I held myself back from stalking you

sat there and waited, and I still do.

I’m sad and lonely don’t you see?

I guess it’s time you’re meeting me!

**

I’m holding on, but no more feign

and, dear love, nowhere to complain!

I’m wrinkly, old and still alone

why don’t you have a telephone?

**

Quit being early, or too late!

Send out your cupids, stop the wait!

I know, I’m only one in masses

but I really think you should get glasses!

*****

  2. I think this poem is special because so many people have been there and it resonates with them.

    Also, it’s a ‘real’ poem, not what I call ‘prose divided into lines’. It has rhythm and rhymes, and is comprehensible, unlike much so-called poetry these days.

    I know poetry doesn’t have to rhyme, but it should at least have rhythm. Well done, Aurora.
