Love, So Long Ago

Love, So Long Ago short poem

Photo by allenran 917

I can remember the days when love was abundant,
Oh, it was so long ago!
I remember when every turn was a new, more exciting, and more adventurous lover,
I remember love, as a take and go trade,
It was an emotionless feeling,
Even though many did not now,
It was the time of my youth, with my youthful, uncontrollable, unreasonable desires,
Love was a common thing and many thought three words could describe what they felt,
‘I love you!’
Is what they all said!
With no genuine feelings involved,
And no real emotions ever came into play,
Love was something which many could not comprehend,
Many said, ‘Love is in the air!’
But they didn’t even know what love was,
Many had no idea what the true meaning of love was,
Many never felt love before,
Many of them would say they’re in love with one,
While still chasing after 3 more,
Many thought love was something they could have in abundance,
With more than one lover,
Hmm, those where the days of my youth,
Now, I’m a grown man,
Love isn’t anywhere anymore,
If I ever found any living soul,
With genuine love,
The love would never leave the grasp of my hand,
The love would forever stay,
Oh love!
It was so unknown,
Until now!
Oh love,

At 10:30, Silence Dispersed,every edge withdrew with dark, The moon was pale, still brightening as diamond spark, At the tree, an owl hoot, at surface dogs barked. Sudden, I heeded, the sound of footsteps was appearing from the street, exulted
