Poetry Spills From The Cracks Of A Broken Heart - Poem by Stefan nnn

How many love poems,
end in love requited?
How many the hands won,
with pretty words?

Love poems
like pearls,
perhaps,
are

a sign, of ongoing irritation.

Nice for old ladies,
but, bad news for oysters.

    This is a great idea and your tongue-in-cheek ending was exactly right. Thanks for this, Stefan.]
