A Love Scale

I intended to create a love scale
For anytime I had a doubt
I knew when I thought of love
The scale would balance out

This imaginary instrument
Swayed in my head
Kept me occupied
When a man turned his head

Many possibilities were weighed
Maybe I added on a few
The scale never failed me
Until I fell for you

Even though I contemplate
And look for reasons we should fail
My thoughts only turn to love
And you, you break my scale

Your beauty, reasons, and possibilities
Weigh a million pounds
And the risks, bitterness, and pain
Go crashing toward the ground

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
