Fighting Rhyme With Or Without Reason

Love, I am overcoming your pain
Or am I?

So much passion lost today
High fiving ambitions paving the way
No more blue
The skies are grey
Where is hope?
Buried deep into the calamity of heartless graves

Who am I?
Who were they?
Flashes in the pan
Stuck upon love's decay

Is this where Dr Seuss's metaphors,
Dissipate into oblivion?

Is Medusa alive and well?
Staring into the kindred hearts of a shying society?
Have Cupid's arrows lost all of their strength?
Unable to fight for hopeless romantic endeavours
Making love a mirage
To even their own admirations

Flesh is limited
True love flows beyond even spirituality
Floating into a realm of unexplained motions
Balancing the waters of real emotions,
Through the depths of one's true character as a whole
Venturing through uncharted dreams yet to be fulfilled

Will everyone learn of what true love is?
Perhaps only till the candy is taken away
From those who trick and treat at a rented pace
Always knowing business is open
For those who try acting out their fairy tale fantasies

Guile is fun at times
Frolicking on golden intentions
Mixing things up
Releasing tensions
Always keeping things fresh
As relaxation becomes a giant sigh of self-relief

True love never has a price
It is stronger than any materialistic thing
So many must open up their eyes
Stop using love as if it was only a game

I have learned so much in life
Still learning to this very day
As I strive on destroying every rhyme burdened by every dull cliché

Yet, I do need to have fun,
Excitement in so many different ways
As I give rhyme no reason
To overstay its redundant stay

My heart is free
As it flies higher than ever before

I am self-medicating myself into an optimistic lifestyle
Becoming stronger each and every day

Love, I am overcoming your pain

Love, Take me or leave me,
I know I always have myself

No matter what, the skies shall always remain blue
As dreams await my arrival

Love, I shall strive for you
Will you thrive for me?

Ah, I have a lot of patience, anyways….

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

"Oh Day of Fire and Sun"
by Sara Teasdale

Oh day of fire and sun,
Pure as a naked flame,
Blue sea, blue sky and dun
Sands where he spoke my name;

Laughter and hearts so high
That the spirit flew off free,
