love is funny – dverse

April 30, 2015

Love is funny, it makes us cry
It started when you first caught my eye – ouch
I meant, that our love is like a rose
thorny and hard to hold…

But wait…
Love’s words like arrows must fly true
intent to screw… oh, I meant woo
As all the passionate must do

Let me repeat
love is humorous, and I have wept
that you’ll be windblown and swept
into my arms


From → dverse, humor, poetry, romance

    I enjoyed your poem.

    Thanks for coming by. I believe I may misunderstood the instructions but it was fun.

    Have a blessed weekend.

  11. Ooh. I like it, with its true romantic feel. πŸ˜€
    Love is more often a thorn than a rose petal after all.

    • funny how passion means suffering, but I prefer my love to be full of laughter πŸ™‚

  12. What a great parody of romantic love poetry… fun!

  13. I almost wrote you an entire post as a comment but decided to refrain and just say thank you! I laughed and enjoyed your word play, I agree that it is clever and it brightened up my morning πŸ™‚

  15. Ha, you had fun with this one, Bill! I enjoyed the wordplay. Ouch, indeed! And yes, woo….. Love definitely has its humorous aspects. Smiles.

  16. Love what you did.. love is an excellent way to play with metaphor… but it’s also a dangerous one πŸ™‚

  17. I hope after she caught your eye, she didn’t drop it and thus not get an out for her team. Nice fun clever write. And you always do such a grand job at working in rhymes. I doff my chateau to you.

    I am smiling, chuckling & enjoying the “fun” every one is having with this deliriously humorous nonsensical prompt. Me too, wrote for hours, laughing as I scribbled, then blue-penciled most of it.

  19. This is very clever. Peace, Linda
