NEVER Fall In Love

Never fall in love, so said the sage to me
Tis only fools that play in the arena of emotions
Where darkness abounds and loneliness preys
Never, said he, be taken with the comeliness of a lady.

So I strove his mandate to keep
Battling daily this war to win
The spasmodic bouts my tongue endures
The seismic shocks my heart weathers
When this angelic sylph passes by
Oblivious to the pangs she arouses.

His counsels I hopelessly fail
My feet drags in shame
For I had withstood cupid and lasted a moment
And then captive, the child had made me
So I returned me to the sage
His wisdom, my freedom from this entanglement
A shocker rudely awakens
Even the sage was not immune
As the arrow his heart had pierced

Destroyed without a fight left in me
I submit in humble surrender
Twas then another dimension opened
Though fools be them that fall in love
The gentle touch of a lady matures him
Her smile uplifts him above the vicissitudes he encounters
And so it dawns,
Though the sage counseled against love
Even he had no defense
For love… It is the best feeling…

  1. Nice one, am impressed. You fall in love without knowing why. True love they say is a beautiful feeling. If true love still exist i don’t mind having a share of that feeling.

  2. Ayam tempted to state categorically never to judge a man’s writing prowess by his demeanour, looks or spoken language. Daireen, I say exemplifies this argument. A fine balance of creativity and language usage *thumbs up*

  3. Life is never a bed of roses and most times it is not always that simple so you always have to choose between falling in luv and be foolish or being a macho and be lonely…you can not eat your cake and have it…but the last stanza of the poem says it all IT THE BEST. THING THAT HAPPENED TO HIM…so why do fools fall in love.
    ….it is only fools that fall in love
