Foolish Love - Poem by Vanessa Hughes

You played a game
I knew it then
I know it now

But all the same
I loved you then
I love you now

No-one made me feel
How I did then
How I do now

For me, it's real
What I felt then
What I feel now

    A beautiful poem having delicious lines, describing a foolish love. A foolish love knows everything but fails to take a step to go ahead, never thinks what has been happened. Nice poem (Report)Reply
