The Catch

Updated on July 26, 2012


Life has it's reasons,

but Life has no rhymes

Love can feel good

Love can hurt sometimes

When the pain feels good,

thats the catch... you see

To get the one you love

thats the way it must be

What's the reason ?

Her beauty suckered you in

Where is the the rhyme ?

the win.. made your head.. spin

There I was... writing

words on the internet

floating and looking for...

something different to get.

Yes, I was so lost

in the world of cyberspace

trying to find myself

or just looking for a place

A fine place I knew....

that it would be where

I would find your love waiting

with hurt and pain there

Ahh yes... The Catch....

It's what we don't think about

the real truth about love

it's the pain... we can't do without.

      Love should be without pain from one to the other. Love is about caring and sharing. If loving causes pain then run as fast as you can

      to someone who knows a good man when she sees him---and this is my opinion.

      Your work is alway a refreshing journey I am pleased to take. Great passion with words---write a poem where you win.

      Your Hub Friend,

      Bobbi Purvis

      Michael, so true, the catch is always there. But without risk and trial after trial there won't be a winner. We learn from past mistakes, never give up! Sharp poem, very expressive and touching, hugs my friend!

      I truly believe that in our life we meet and come across people for a reason, in order for us to become what we were meant to become.

      Lovely and deep writing Michael. Keep well.
