The Pool Of Love


I have heard of it
Many people talked about it
They talked about how they felt it
Others said they lost it when they found it
Some also said they shed it when it faded, broke their hearts into halves
As curious as I was I wanted to see for myself
On my way, I sensed it
It was so beautiful so I walked to it
It was a big pool so i run my finger through it and tasted it
The sweetness was more than sugar and honey
I was overwhelmed so I jumped to to celebrate
I lost my balance and fell into the pool
Everyone saw me but they did not see the Me they knew
I noticed I became different and I liked it that way
I heard of It, searched for it, smelled it
I saw it, walked to it, touched and tasted it
How did it end? I fell into it
How sweet it feels to fall in the pool of love
