Love in romance is just an illusion


why want when you can't give?
Love in romance is never free,
it is never unconditional
even to the delusional

unreciprocated, it cannot thrive
unappreciated, it withers
unrewarded, it strays

Love in romance is often extreme
it calls for guts
and fools rush in
it may end in regrets
though some seem to win

why give when you don't want?
Love in romance is just an illusion
'tis but an imagined condition
that is why when disillusioned
It barely tarries for recollection.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
