The Masks of Love


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

    it is not suggestive but it is thought provoking. in the end you'll find that slit of smile from in your face. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
