A Simple Question About a Complex Subject: LOVE....[Questioning a past lover; Short]


As Valentine's Day does near approach,
I dare this touchy subject to broach.
Have you any love left,
or of that are bereft?
Fear not on my feelings to encroach.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

it was nearly V.Day in New York State. i may have actually sent this note to the woman i lived with for a few months the year before. maybe i was just playing with poetry and feelings. lucky for me i don't get too emotional when i 'lose' or 'get rid of' a 'love'. of course the 'woman' doesn't always appreciate that lack of emotion. sorry. there was always a good enough reason for one of us to call it quits. three divorces.

    Valentine's day is a waste of time and money. Why have a special time to say you love someone when you can say it any time you please? ? It's a pointless day that most can't remember the origin of. (Report) Reply

    I love short ones that nail it to the wall. Nice rhythm too. Pleasure to meet you. Larry says you're not too bad of a guy. We'll see about that. (Report) Reply
