More Fool I!

“Let’s leap
off Lover’s Leap

& be together for
...ever! ”

She declared

And to be near her
I(without hesitation) leapt.

Love on the rocks
(not a pretty sight)
my mangled mortal remains.

She leapt too
but she cheated
(bungee jumped)

& bounced back
into the arms of her new lover.

I can still hear her

I like a ghost
haunted our past

unable to recover.

Summer turning
into winter.

This great poem is the story of my life
Swift changes in human's life...From Joy to Affliction. Herbert did it! .
When thou didst entice to thee my heart, I thought the service brave: So many joys I writ down for my part, Besides what I might have Out of my stock of natural delights, Augmented with thy gracious benefits. nicely written
If i love thee not. Thanks for sharing this poem with us.
It reminds me of the song LET'S STOP BEFORE WE FALL IN LOVE popularized by NORMAN SALEET+++++++++++++
