Oh love and painfulness,
its blows
take tolls of spells
and wedding bells to boot,
they hoot their sounds
through all our lives,
their music, sighs and groans,
as trials accost our thoughts and lives,
and we decide to roam the skies,
for answers to the tests,
as if they were the pests
that drive us mad,
and yet they are the stories that are sad,
romantic, beautiful and glad.

Style / type: 
Free verse
Last few words: 
Glad Valentine's day to you all with my love. Liked playing with sounds/rhythm here too! Ann.
Editing stage: 


There's a slight hesitation created in the rhythm here by the and,
I am not sure yet whether I shall change it,
perhaps others can give their opinions.

The rhythm is almost the most important
along with the sound of this little snippet, I feel.

A blooming romantic, but then I was brought up when that was
the dripping-grotto of poetry n'est pas Jayne?

LuvAnn with kisses.

"The image of yourself which you see in a mirror Is dead,
but the reflection of the moon on water, lives." Kenzan.
