Short poems with the most romantic first line but the least romantic second line

Updated on March 25, 2013

Truly funny!!! Some time ago the Washington Post ran a Valentine's Day competition and asked their readers to send in rhymes with the most romantic first line, but the least romantic second line. This hub offers you a few of the best answers, and although the content of this hub is not new to the net, it is worth sharing here in case any of you have never read these before.

I take no credit for the content, I simply typed out the entries as they were sent to the paper.

Love may be beautiful, love may be bliss

But I only slept with you, because I was pissed.

*************************************************

I thought that I could love no other

Until that is, I met your brother.

*************************************************

Roses are red, violets are blue,

sugar is sweet, and so are you.

But the roses are wilting, the violets are dead,

the sugar bowl's empty and so is your head.

******************************************************************************************************

Of loving beauty you float with grace,

If only you could hide your face.

******************************************************************************************************

Kind, intelligent, loving and hot,

This describes everything you are not.

******************************************************************************************************

I want to feel your sweet embrace,

But don't take that paper bag off of your face.

******************************************************************************************************

I love your smile, your face, and your eyes--

Damn, I'm good at telling lies!

******************************************************************************************************

My darling, my lover, my beautiful wife--

Marrying you screwed up my life.

********************************************************************************************************

I see your face when I am dreaming,

That's why I always wake up screaming.

********************************************************************************************************

My love, you take my breath away--

What have you stepped in to smell this way?

********************************************************************************************************

My feelings for you no words can tell,

Except for maybe "Go to Hell"

********************************************************************************************************

What inspired this amorous rhyme?--

Two parts vodka, one part lime!

********************************************************************************************************

      Your eyes twinke like starry skies

      but I feel sick at the sight of your massive thighs.

      Good laugh.

      I don't think this qualifies

      I don't remember the woman,

      I don't recall the time

      But I do remember the wine

      It was Chambertin.
