Expression Eruption: Love is generic


Love is generic
Overheard overseen
Overlaid overpaid
Yet an overdue attention

Love is generic
Over-and-over, it is piggybacked
Over-the-left-shoulder
Yet not overuse nor over-age

Love is generic
Overshadowing an overall picture
Overhung and over-sang,
Yet an over-ignored melody

Love is generic
Over-and-out, somehow overstaying
Overdone overly
Yet an overestimate bill in irony

Love is generic
Over-read and over-known
Overflowing from an overhead tank
Yet it is rekindling and never over.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
