Love's Labor Lost
And a poem by yours truly that puts the details in a nutshell...
I start loving too easily,
I get attached too soon;
Though it’s a boon initially,
It ends in nothing but gloom.
I become the other, I give all I got,
In dark wilderness, at love a shot;
A hundred aches and setbacks,
Every step a prayer for mercy;
Bearing in my heart a million cracks,
Bleeding on thorns woven into coats lacy.
Each time I trip, I vow to watch
Where I set my foot,
But when I see a cozy face,
My sensibility gets a boot.
With hope I wear a smile so wide,
Feeling “THIS time it’s for keeps”;
Not realizing this is yet another ride,
And sorrow again in heaps...
I wish I’d take a break,
And stop messing life for you,
Leave you to your ideal self,
And in the bargain, be happy, too.
Is it why they say, in love you FALL?
The list of smiles so petty,
And grievances Eiffel tall...
HAPPY FRIENDSHIP DAY!
