The Masks Of Love - Poem by Alden Nowlan

I come in from a walk
With you
And they ask me
If it is raining.

I didn’t notice
But I’ll have to give them
The right answer
Or they’ll think I’m crazy.

    Simple message that is quite easy to identify with. Not a strong meaning that leaves you wanting to change your life or make your situation better, just a quiet reality that is enjoyable to recognize. This poem would be stronger if it was longer and suggested other actions of a person in love. If it went on with more examples it would be more memorable and someone may wish to memorize it and truly ponder it. (Report) Reply
