Stupid Cupid - Poem by Bridgid Patrick

All the love that history knows,
Is said to be in every rose
Yet all that could be found in two,
Is less than what i feel for you
I thought love was just a mirage of the mind,
Its fake, an illusion, impossible to find
But the day i met you i began to see
Love is real and exists in me.

'Love is something that can't be described.
Like the look of a rose,
The smell of the rain,
Or the feeling of forever'

    the motif and the ideas in this poem are romantic and well thought out. I would have found this poem more powerful if I knew of a convincing argument that a single rose containing all the love that history knows.

    I have never heard this idea. The rhythm, rhyme and meter of the poem was very well done. But the imagery is hard to believe because often people give a dozen roses.. let alone 2 roses.

    This problem could be fixed by changing the opening 2 lines into a hypothetical. i.e. 'even if all the love could be in a single rose...' etc. well.. just ideas.. cheers!
