Fairy Tale - Poem by Stanley Oguh

Fairy tales say magic always are never out of sight
When I think of love stories I know they are right
Finding true love is only half the struggle
The real fight is keeping it from ending in rubble
Such a divine fantasy is happily ever after
Nature demands balance, tears for your laughter
Love can feel like a side effect of humanity
When it collides with hate we are left with insanity
The love is real and deep, as loud as we yell
It's like heaven picked up and moved in with hell
Although we know we could never walk away
Constantly we wonder how we can stay
The nature of love includes destruction
Glory entwined with volcanic eruption
Still it calls to us and we hunt it down
If nothing was lost, nothing can be found
