Of Poets And Lovers - Poem by Matt Palmer

‘I loved her so
But now, Oh woe! ’
Countless poets will declare
With more words and fancier air
Till words have lost all meaning.
But this poet cries
‘Woe that any love was loved at all
That lovers were compelled to scrawl
Of the heart, passion, and the soul
And cheapen them unwittingly
And cause her to mean less to me.’
Why, she'd be the only one I see
If not for poets lustily
Declaring loves eternal by the dozens.
Understand, poets are gluttons
Who vainly feed their hearts and souls
Upon truer loves they can not know
