A nice little rhyming poem here. I appreciate the end couplet, by the way. Too often when rhyming, single syllable words are used at the end of each line (something I'm guilty of) as it's just easier! However, 'protected' and 'rejected' are three syllable words, so kudos there! lol
As to the poem, strange that love can heal the damage that love itself has done in the past but the fact remains, it is still the best remedy...
Heh, you're so sweet writing poems about me. *gushes and blushes* JK ;) I thought this piece was adorable, and it definitely is effective in representing a new romantic vigor in your life.
The only correction I would offer up would be "I feel is very strong. " would make more grammatical sense if it said "I feel it's very strong.", whatwith the comma before and all.
Re-reading this poem, I actually got the chills... a bit of a realization of what love really is, versus what people say it's supposed to be. The line that gave me the chills was: "now, I'm learning to live that little bit more." The reason why is because we often mistake love for being that emotion, that happiness when we're with someone. Love, in reality, is in the people we live for. Sometimes, when we're all alone and sad about life, we forget to live.
The ones we love will remind us to live that little bit more.
