I am a sucker for romance. In fact, when I was a teenager, I read and collected over 250 Harlequin Romance novels. I loved those books! They fed my imagination, but more importantly, my love of language and the endless possibilities of love. So, in this blog, I want to pay tribute to romance through poetry (I am no Shakespeare, so don’t go there). One day, I will write the greatest romance novel of all times … okay, maybe not all times, but I will write one. In the meantime, enjoy the following romantic poem.
I Don’t Do Love Letters Anymore
I don’t do love letters anymore
There’s no one that I care that much for
It’s very much ashame, you see
That I no longer fill someone’s heart with glee
There’s no inspiration
No heart-filled titillation
For my heart, it fills with sadness
On the edge of sheer madness
I don’t do love letters anyore
I have not the heart to explore
For a love that once gave me inspiration
Was only a figment of my imagination
So, what is your favorite love poem? Share it with me. I’d love to see what moves your heart and soul.
