Crimson Love

Rookie - 0 Points (18 / Prince Charming)

Heart


The Stylized representation,
of this hallow muscular organ,
Perplexes minds upon the brink of insanity,
The reflected image of a shape
you deem worthy to call love,
In actuality is the deformed muscle
filled with nothing but such blood,
No love abides in such a desolate place....

The mind holds love,
Not that of a deformed organ.

    True, love comes from the brain and not the heart, but calling the heart a deformed muscle is a little too much.
    Anyway, great poem, and congratulations on having it selected as poem of the day on January 12 for four years in a row now! (Report) Reply

    honest thoughts..... and one after my own heart! (Pun intended.) .

    I told them all - never to fall - in love.
    For when hearts do patter - little should matter -
    'cept fingers and skin - loud breaths in between.
    You can hide it with flowers, or romantic spring showers -
    the clouds or the stars - or Jupiter or Mars
    or beautiful oceans - or gardens or potions -
    birds singing along - to Cupid's love song -
    while all do pretend - it's emotional end
    I'll stand this ground - and say I have found
    True heart is not snuggly - but just rubbing uglies.

    And that's pretty good on it's own!

    Why the pseudonym? Unleash yourself poet. (Report) Reply

    A great write and being something that we never think about. Thanks for bringing it to our attention. It certainly won't kill romance. Congratulations (Report) Reply

    The poem is good but it shows how little you know about the anatomy of the human body. Deformed organ is a horrible way to say that it cannot hold love. What makes an organ to be beautiful? Why is the brain beautiful? Why isn't the pancreas a deformed organ. Because you don't like that the shape of the heart is not like in valentines cards, it doesn't make it ugly or deformed. I personally adore the shape of the heart as it is. It is much beautiful in it's complex shape with it's arteries and veins and it's EKG. (Report) Reply

    This deformed muscle pumping blood
    Is where we place our hands and swear
    When in love or in an emotional flood
    This is what we do with affection willingly bare..... (Report) Reply

    This is great! I'll agree on your statement - it all begins with the brain. The heart is the innocent victim that must feel the pain for another organ's stupidity. That's what my haiku heart is also about. Good poetry... :) (Report) Reply

    Hey youthful Missy! This is terrific poem from you. Yes everybody like the beauty of the girl physical. And people go round, round round the youthful blooms......Yup! Truth is said......
    However, real love as said in the poem is always from heart and soul that mind of course. |A big high-five to the youngster! (Report) Reply

    LOL. Honey, this is hilarious and in a strange way, true. The reason people say love comes from the heart is because when you are in love it beats faster and makes you blush. Though, the reason it beats faster is because of hormones and hormones come from the brain. I love the way you took something magical and added science to it. (Report) Reply

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
