So you want to read a love poem
of my very own
Well let me tell you
It's hard to write one
When you're all alone.

I find it's not worth it
To fall in love anymore
Cuz before you express your feelings
They're already out the door

Or they might stick around awhile
But they'll play you day by day
And when you need their support
They'll just turn and walk away

And when they're tired of you
They'll turn as cold as ice
Then you'll be all alone
To pay a heavy price.

So I find it's no use for me
To write poems of affection
I'd rather write about pain
Lonliness and rejection

I don't wanna write
About the blue sky
or about any blossoming rose
Cuz the rose would eventually die

I prefer writing poems
About the pain people feel
About the loss of hope
Or a heart that will never heal

So why lay your heart on the line
And risk taking on all that pain
If your heart's been broken once
It will happen again.

I too have a problem where I can't write any love poems, and while it is hard to face rejection I do believe in true love. Call me niave or foolish but keep trying I am sure there is someone special out there for you.
Welcome to the site, great first post.

Hmmmmm !  

Don't need to see a 'love' poem ...
any poem will do.
Glad to have you in Passion's
writing whatever you want to.

Welcome.

Welcome to Passions - vphantom

This is a heart breaking poem full of
pain -----sigh.

Takes a year to get to know yourself
before jumping from the pan into a fire.
When we know who we are then our choices
to pick where we want our hearts to stay
are far better - and far less chance of
another withered heart.

Hi welcome to passions  
This is a very good start I liked it very much.
I've been there to but gladly only once and it was as you stated but I guess if we give up and never try again we will never experience that once in a life time true love that eventually does come along. Please don't give up and try to learn to love again

It is the harmony of the universe

You're right vphantom...you don't have to write love poetry...any will do...what i see here is that you need a lot of comfort...well you came to the right place for that .  There is someone out there for you no doubt...but don't give up...if you need to talk to someone...I'm pretty good at listening (reading)  my email is open to you. Just click on email next to my name and there it is!!!

Welcome to Passions..hope you stay a while
This was a really good post, I like your style
Here at this forum we write what we feel
And never judge one another, its like an unspoken deal
So write whats in your heart, even if its pain
Write about whats on your mind, write about the rain
Through poetry, you heal your soul and heart
And make for a new beginning, perhaps a new start
I believe love is out there for you
And I hope all your dreams come true.

Take care,
Amy

A painfully truthful poem, it's beautiful.
