15 Minutes - Poem by mestup poems

I want to change the rules.
Instead of fifteen minutes of fame,
it should be fifteen minutes of love.

Everyone is entitled to fifteen minutes
of pure, uncensored, unbridled love.

Fifteen minutes -
fifteen minutes of blindless,
overwhelmed with bliss.
for fifteen minutes.

For fifteen minutes nothing else matters.
Love matters!
If everyone got it -
Everyone would get it.

Just fifteen minutes -
Who needs fame anyway!

    Well thought out. As I read, I thought this could turn itself into a villanelle with very little effort. An interesting concept I admit although there are those who have found a much longer sustaining love.

    A very interesting thought.15 minutes of fame and then forgotten or 15 minutes of love that I would remember forever. I know which one I'd choose. Well done. Andrew (Report) Reply
