When is Love Real?
This is yet another “A.M. Poem” from my wee-hour scribblings, this time about the expression of love and what is really real. See below for more A.M. poems.
I Love You...Really?
On the sappy movie—
Some damn chick flick—
A Greek god tells
A leggy blonde
That he loves her,
As if the words were easy
And had always been there.
She doesn’t seem surprised,
Flicks her long hair back,
With perfect teeth,
Repeating the same thing
To him now,
As if there was never a question.
Were there any nerves involved?
Hesitation? Or doubt?
Seemed to be none…
None of the normal stuff,
No fear of rejection…
A confident smile,
A sure gaze,
Along with a smug, “I love you.”
My eyes harden
Towards the embracing couple.
I want to slap
That stupid blonde,
That bronzed dark god,
Because she is so calm...
And that can’t be
What it feels like
To hear those three words.

- Always the Goodbye Girl? - Poem and Music
Is goodbye always forever? Is it just a part of life? Another of my "A.M. Poems" questions that, while David Gates' song "Goodbye Girl" promises more.
