Love Bug - Poem by Sofia Kioroglou

Love is like the measles.
Once you catch it,
it starts spreading like wildfire.

First, the itch,
then the ugly zits
and finally the scars.

Those nasty pockmarks
reminding you that getting bitten by the love bug
can cause serious damage to the patient.

    Oh, the many sides of love. I've just recently been biten by the same bug and rather like it. Seems everyone doesn't find it so pleasant. Anyway your point is well made and true to your feelings. Good penning. (Report) Reply

    Even though the love caused the pain, it could heal the heart. It's the balance in this life to keep the cup half empty and half full. I wish you to enjoy with all situation. Thank you for sharing this awesome poem. (Report) Reply
