Call Me Cliche If You Must

by Melpomene   Jan 14, 2008

I've never been able to write a heartfelt love poem,
Yet I shall still attempt to write this one just for you.

Tonight, I dream about you,
Sweet thoughts of you linger in my mind,
A passionate flame to burn within my heart.
As I think to myself, What is love?
I ponder my mind yet again,
Asking myself over and over,
....................What is love?
....................What is love?
Though in the back of my mind,
One answer stands out to me.
One definition of love sparks my thoughts,
So again I ask myself once more,
.....................What is love?
And suddenly beauty flows into my mind.
As I answer myself.
.....................Love is...You and I.

Dedicated To Zach.

    First, I love the title. I always wanted to use cliche in a title and I know now it really catches peoples eye. Anways-

    Those first two lines were great, I think that they not only hooked my attention but showed that you were giving an effort. Great job on that attention grabber...

    Tonight, I dream about you,
    Sweet thoughts of you linger in my mind,
    A passionate flame to burn within my heart.

    Those lines, as you said in the title call you cliche if you must, they are cliche. But you add a sort do I say it. Elegance and beauty to it. Which stops the whole cliche thing right there. Lol

    Also, I really liked that you put the number of ........ in front of the question "What is love" I think that everyone once or more in their life will ask this question. You added an extra emotion and it also had an affect on the way that the reader read it.

    And suddenly beauty flows into my mind

    Whoaa. I love that line. Not only can I relate but it is beautiful. My favorite line out of the whole peice. You follow it up greatly with the answer to your own question. Which is beautiful as well. Overall, a beautifully written peice. I loved the simplicity in it meanwhile the emotions were strong. Again, great job. 5.5
