This is an oldie, posted in response to a thread currently running in Philosophy 101 (and relevant to one in the Prose forum).

I hear a song and wonder why
The writers dupe and poets lie,
Why love is such a chronic theme,
When poets and the singers team.

The measure placed on what we feel,
Becomes too small, becomes unreal,
When all the truth is washed away,
And love is just a tired cliche.

The songs are flawed and movies err,
And books are often as unfair;
Despite what artists write and sing,
True love is not a common thing.

wow, this must have been written with a lot of passion. i loved how you compared everything to the things i learned in humanities this past year. it was weird hearing all that stuff again.
you are a very talented writer. keep up the good work!

It's so nice to read your poetry here, to let others see what I saw that first time I opened the Passions site. Your writing amazes me! And you're right, true love is not common!

Very nice Ron. I like.

Perhaps true love is more common than we think... However, perhaps our ability to recognize it when we see it is the uncommon thing...

Ron, true love is as rare as the Hope Diamond. I truly believe when it is found we should take every chance, risk every risk and GRAB it with both hands and never let go. (Hmmmm I should take that advice, it's some pretty good stuff *wink* )
Neato! (making finger and thumb in the OK sign) *wink*

Nice theme... I enjoyed the flow.

If true love is indeed as rare as the Hope Diamond, does it also have the same curse? LOL - as nice comment you made.

Ron,

I find it interesting that we approach the same subject from differing angles. Nice work.
