LOVE OWES ME ONE.

I promised myself I’d never write a poem about love,
At least until I could understand what love really is,
But here I am, penning down these words about love.

I imagine I’d probably spend the rest of my life in love,
In love with a person, a song, a book or even myself,
Somehow, love will always be in the picture, or maybe
Love will be the one painting the picture.

It’s funny how everything boils down to your existence,
The absence of you is the presence of deep emptiness,
And the presence of you is so beautiful, words cannot describe,
But when you come over, you don’t stay long enough.

I understand. I understand that circumstances aren’t convenient,
And sometimes I can’t find my keys when you come knocking,
But hey, we could be a beautiful miracle, you and me, together.

You should come visit again sometime; I’ll be ready then,
I’ll have my keys handy too and I hope you like me a lot,
I hope you like me so much, you wouldn’t want to leave.
I hope you decide to stay, please stay.

Love love love the poem… Love you even more though, you are my beautiful/brilliant/talented/lyrical perfection. Love is definitely going to find you and you shall make the world jealous .

  3. @macstein led me to you and your blog and I’m not disappointed. My love for poetry is… *sigh*

    I love this poem, how you talk about love -the good and bad parts but still make it beatiful. Love is there for the taking even from something as simple as a ‘book’
    The pain of love leaving too and the striking admission that ‘sometimes I can’t find my keys’ when love comes calling and yet in the midst of these the enviable willingness to love again and to ‘have my key handy’ till love comes and decides to stay.

    The poem has a good melody and moves at an unhurried yet purposeful pace.
    Beautiful poem! I love it
