Love's End

Love’s End

The end of love is never well
The pain it brings what soul can tell
Still all will know its lovely sting
And for a time will with it dwell

For those of you whose hearts are frail
Delighting now in love’s good spell
Beware of deprivation’s hell
The end of love is never well … (just sayin’)


Of the Poem (Parameters):

Stanza: Quatrain (i.e. 4 lines per stanza)
Meter: Tetrameter (i.e. 8 syllables per line)
Rhyme Scheme: aaba aaaa (a scheme I almost never use)

"just sayin'" does not fit the poetic parameters... so what are you sayin'? [Retorical question, of course] A lovely poem - like always.

I love this! You are a true master of your craft. I love how much you really work on your poems. And I think the "just sayin" kind of adds a bit of modern flair that makes this timely and beautiful.
