The Edge of Eternity

by Karl Wild GG23   Mar 10, 2007


The word forever is often spoken,
In relationships young and old,
Innocent hearts are usually broken,
With words that never seem to hold.

Most know what I'm talking about,
Some have yet to feel the pain,
The mind tells you without a doubt,
Nothing to lose, everything to gain.

So you listen and take a chance,
Forget all about flirting with disaster,
Because love has you in a trance,
And your heart is beating faster.

To hear somebody say "I love you",
Could be the greatest feeling ever known,
But if those words turnout untrue,
Soon enough you'll be all alone.

Still it never crosses our mind,
When it's all said and done we'll see,
That it's harder then it looks to find,
The edge of eternity.

    Really deep and interesting, I like the topic and the way you wrote it was good. It is simple and easy to understand yet very deep and powerful.
    My favorite stanza is:

    -So you listen and take a chance,
    Forget all about flirting with disaster,
    Because love has you in a trance,
    And your heart is beating faster.-

    Good rhymes, too, you created great flow through this piece.

    The poem completely fits my life. I see so many hearts getting broken and so many fake "love" that I end up refusing to try anything with that subject. Good poem

    OH MY,
    how much of a greater poet can you be?
    Each poem I read of yours, it seems to be better than the last. This poem, oh dear...it has so much meaning and pure talent that it's hard to bare.
    Many have attempted to write about love,
    even I have...
    but to me,
    you are the only one that has truly
    succeeded!
    You are amazing, someone new
    to put on my favourite authors' list!
    5/5!!!
