Love's Only Needs


Love cannot die,
................ but it fades if not fed.
It declines into a shell,
............................ and just waits.


Although then emotionless
......................................love, led
Into browsing on memory,
..................................... debates
Whether it's lead or recede
.............................that's needed.


Shredded by yearning
........................into pale spectre
Love yet finds good reasons
...........................why no feeding
Ever comes it's way,
.................... it does not expect
Life to be easy,
...................commitment, above
All, seems the answer,
................. love only needs love.

    loves an emotion that lives in our soul
    it pains and it pleasures its what makes us all whole
    sometimes it lays dormant awaiting the fire
    unrequited, unselfish, a pure desire! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Thomas Wyatt

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore
To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
