Oblige us to each other now

    Love is to be endured. There is no perfect straight road without a bend. All we need is understanding. Nice poem, I like it.

    When love turns sour then its best to depart than hurt each other. Nice poem.

    Love is like day and night. Every relationship has day (passion and all it's goodness) and night (want to strangle your lover) ... It's the cycle of love.

    Oh how true this poem is. I have lived it and now happy as can be. A marriage that has died is so toxic to live by.

    A la mode a marriage is a toad. One day it's beautiful the next it gives you warts. Don't be a poet about it, it's all for show. Such that Edgar Allan Poe doesn't even know!

    17 century free love...the Age of Aquarius began with Dryden? Who'd a thunk it?

    What should I do if I can't find empathy from novels or poem?

    [ More like each take your corner and come out fighting ]. Though marriage is for stability of family and the kids. It is the backbone of society. The Bible takes of a life long perspective and frowns on remarriage
