Sensible - Poem by Ravi Kopra

Love is not the only cause
of sorrows in this world

A lonely night still brings sleep
but sleepless are the nights in love

It has wrecked the lives
of many women and men

When together
Roses, all roses

When away
A heap of thorns

And in infidelity
A knell of hell

Roses spring in the spring
and thorns? Year round

So pick a rose when you can
Ring a bell of pleasure

And forget hell and thorns
Be sensible.

Topic(s) of this poem: love, sorrows
