LOVE

Love hurt my heart
until I saw
that it never could be
owned by me.

And when I freely
gave my love
I found it set
my own heart
free.

  1. Love is like a slippery eel isn't it. When you're holding it you can hardly believe how brave you are...when it wriggles free and swims away you think..eew!

  3. What an intense poem. Very true. If we hold too tightly, we end up losing them in the long run.

  4. Margie,

    This is very powerful and beautiful. Once you allow yourself to become vulnerable, the love you feel is beyond words!

    Take care :)

    Love is like a jello. Hehehe I know u r laughing. If u love it freeze it if not just leave as it is.

  26. My heart went out to you for this poem Margie. I havent read anyone else say it better than you did. Excellent poem.

    Love is like a butterfly,
    As soft and gentle as a sigh,
    it goes where it pleases
    and it pleases wherever it goes
    Hold it and it dies,
    set it free and you'll feel nice
