Forest Of Love (poem)

Updated on January 21, 2013

Beware of the forest of love

They enter but never come out

What is it that makes reason rout

What is it that lovers dream of


Run home just as fast as you can

And pray you find different plan

For some other wonder to scan

In times before all this began


Return to those old youthful days

When you would set the streets ablaze

With fantasies made in a haze

And everything else was a phase


Beware of the forest of love

You’ll enter and never come out

You’ll linger and wander about

And learn just what dreams are made of


Run home and do not venture near

And pray other music you hear

For some other wonder revere

In times when you thought vision clear


Find Joy in the life which once was

When everything was just because

And sense seemed to follow some laws

And you were the meaning for awes


Beware of the forest of love

We entered and never came out

We’re lost and of this there’s no doubt

That we are the dreams once warned of

      Oh - what a fantastic and mystical place. I do believe I have been there a few times and managed to make it out with some semblance.

      Too Late!!! Where was this poem when I was young an innocent and had only the notion of love? Once you have been there, you can never get that innocence back. For some this is a blessing, for others a curse.... I love the the eeriness of this! I have been lost in a forest, and I have been in love, and this conjures up both those feelings.
