The Truth About Love
(an organized poetic essay)
When you feel attracted
To a possible special someone,
When you put yourself out there,
You have to be prepared to accept
What will come next.
As Luck is a key,
Whichever the outcome may be,
It will not seem fair.
We all know that
When Pot of Luck is part of the game,
The odds are never in your favor.
1- Sought after Resolution
There is always a chance you could reach up
To each other’s expectations
That is if both partners want to build up
You could share paths for a while, maybe longer,
can never be foreseen,
and even if it does seem
So you better keep in mind, the unknown still lies hereafter.
2- Heart-break Pollution
You also have to get ready to a procession
Of falls – just one or a succession thereof –
And those may well be manifolds,
Because you are not one, but two, and both
Might not meet the other’s whole set of expectation.
The aftermath will surely feel sore.
You can never forecast
Whether it is the last of those rejections,
But you have to move past
And on to your next dice-roll projections.
Looking for love will always rummage at your core.
3- The Rule’s Exposition
Since we all have expectations,
Keep in mind that true love is the exception
While the rest constitutes the Rule – no discussion –
Knowing it might be the pathway to your redemption.
4- Settling Evolution
Is there a fix, beyond lies?
The middle way is compromise.
Though that may leave some hunger for more,
With time, it can render others very happy – no lore.
I for one
Have tried and found,
I am happier unbound,
Than with only half my one.
5 – Conclusion
Look! Out there
Lies not just one path
That leads to your happiness.
Before you can find it elsewhere,
My advice is to build it within yourself.
Then you can go on, and explore at your own pace.
