Roxanne Dubarry

Rookie - 152 Points (October 4,1954 / Seattle, Washington)


My love for you once was young,
but alas has grown colder
as we grow much older.
Where or where
has our first love gone?
And can it ever become
born again?

All I have left
are the letters
you wrote to me.
This poem is pure
fiction, and not
based upon reality.

    Extremely moving.
    It happens. the death of Love, with all the sadness and pain that comes with it.
    You have managed to create this feeling, in a short but very intense poem.
    Excellent! (Report) Reply

    I have read your beautiful poem, 'Love'. Although you have said that the poem is a fiction and not based upon reality, I think what you have said in the poem is a reality in the lives of couples of our age. (Report) Reply
