How Can I Fall in Love? (Poem)

Updated on September 3, 2015

How can I fall in love

when everything is fake

nothing but words and longing

How can I feel safe?

Look at my heart

and not my face

go beyond what you see

come and know me

please take me to safer place


Don't use me

and consume me

only to throw me away

let your heart beat

go beyond my name

and I promise I will do the same


Doesn't it tire you?

are you not hurt?

doesn't it leave you empty?

can't you see love's true worth?


What am I thinking

what a fool does this make of me

to think you'll look my way

when all you want is play

I am not a body

more than a past time

I am a soul with a heart

that's beating fine

I think it's great

that I don't look like the women that draw your eyes

because honestly

I'm way too weak for your lies



Before I go

this I'll say

and this I'll pray

that you may know love someday

it's not just a touch

not one night

not too much

it's not just the allure of the flesh

more than a thrill

not something that kills

For love is gentle

beautiful and kind

a commitment

a privilege to call someone, "mine."

-end-

Soli Deo Gloria

      Great message about what love is and isn't. All beautiful lines, but especially the last few.

      Wow, Michelle Anne. A divine inspiration made this poem a classic piece.

      " For love is gentle - beautiful and kind - a commitment - a privilege to call someone, 'mine'. "

      " For God so loved the world, HE GAVE His only Son..." so everyone who believes in HIM, is 'His'- God says "you are mine."

      HalleluYAH.

      Voted useful, beautiful.
