    This was great. Loved the word and choices in your phrasing. And As it has been said before, that's how love hits sometimes. It just pops up out of nowhere and knocks you over.

    You are trully one of the lucky ones who finds it and holds tight to the reigns.

    Wonderful Job

    "Finding love in this lonely world
    Was like finding a needle in a haystack"

    This really touched me the most because it is so deep and so true! 5/5

    Beautifully written love poem, with great imagery and good choice of words. You expressed emotions in it excellently. The ending is very captivating and effective (the last stanza)
    My favorite stanza is:

    -Something that just wasn't worth the effort
    The countless disappointments
    The tears...
    The hurt...
    Weighing down the fragile heart
    When something that felt like love
    Turned out to be a sham
    A red herring-

    Well done, 5/5 from me

    Beautiful piece. Your love shines through your words in this write.

    But even pipe dreams can become a reality
    Love can find you when you least expect it
    When you cease looking
    It springs out of nowhere
    Like a long lost friend
    A best friend
    A lover

    You know I am a believer in true love and I know like me you have found that :)
    Love Cindy

    Amazing Gem! So glad for you to write again. This piece was different than your others, but amazing with it's metaphors and comparisons...good flow to it too. Sometimes with free verse, I too, find it hard on how to break up the words into stanzas, but you did it beautifully! Great job!
    I LOVED this line
    Nailing jelly to a tree

    How amazing in imagery that was. Plus, it was original and sort of funny and sweet! Just perfect!
