Today’s prompt gave us the choice of writing a ‘Love’ or ‘Anti-Love’ poem. As you may have been able to guess from the title, I decided I wasn’t in a cynical mood today and opted for the former! (being very much in love myself) I hope it isn’t too sickeningly sweet for you…
A Rose Without Thorns
The feeling that can’t be forced,
That can only hope to flourish
In a garden still unravaged
By the hate beyond the walls.
For two souls drawn together
There is no greater solace
Than sharing this sanctum
Behind a solid door of devotion.
The affections shall only grow,
Their seed of origin matters not,
For even a love born from lust
Can still become undying loyalty.
Some may struggle to find it
And the partner waiting within,
But all shall have their day
When destiny guides them there.
