' A Love To Die For'

I have a love I would die for
and they say their love is real.
Would they step in front of an arrow shot?
for this love they proclaim for me to feel.

I wouldn't want to test fates waters
of this depth of love they've now shown.
But if the chips were down
would their love for me last and grow?

Romeo had Juliet, lover's poison passed their lips
I see couples that seem as close as this
they seemed joined together at the hip.

Life and love will be what it is to be
it will grow or it might fall apart.
It is all really, what one has stored deep inside,
stored deep within their heart.

    Life and love will be what it is to be
    it will grow or it might fall apart.
    It is all really, what one has stored deep inside,
    stored deep within their may have or have not but definitely it demands sacrifice and greater understanding in fine art in presenting.....10 (Report) Reply

    Ah! My kind of poet! Good to see we rhymers still survive. Love the poem and the sentiment, but may I just make one negative (and I hope, constructive) comment?

    You start with 'I have 'A' love' and continue with 'them' and 'they' - should be 'he' (or she, who knows?) . (Report) Reply
