Love


Love is like a black hole
Unable to see it - Detect it
It sneaks up onto you - Sucks you in
There's no way of knowing - No way of avoiding it
Love does this to people and some dislike this
Some people wish love didn't do such things
Such people who wish love would just leave them alone
But there is no way of stopping an imminent black hole
Just like there is no way of stopping love from snatching you
The heart has a mind of its own and there is no arguing with
Some may try to shut off such feelings - It works at first
But in the end, love will come right at you and snatch you harder than before
Everything around a black hole is doomed - That is what they say
Although are they really doomed? - Do they have no hope?
Theoretically a black hole would suck everything around it
Taking it all to a different place - Maybe a better place
And so could love - But we may never know

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
