A Lesson In Love - Poem by Ayana makonnen

Can I talk of a lesson
I thought it was a blessing
Sent to me from heaven above
Oh how I wanted to be so much in love
The time spent together seem so real
I did not know that he would steal
My heart my soul
And everything that was whole
This lesson was one that had to be told

    Well, I am sure you were not the first Finnish woman to lose her heart and soul to a rascal, Ayana, and you surely will not be the last. I liked the style of your fine poem which was written in a simple and direct style, easy for a reader to understand, and there wasn't a complaining in it like you see in so many other broken heart poems. As your poem says, you did indeed learn a lesson from that experience and like all things involving romance, it's what you learned from it that counts. Welcome to poem hunter, Ayana! Carl.
