Love Lost, Love Gained


Since there’s no help, come let us kiss and part.”

Love Lost, Love Gained

Since my true love just up and left,
there’s no relief. I am bereft.

No matter how much I expound,
help is nowhere to be found.

Come, wipe the memory of his face.
Let, then, a new love take its place.

“Us” bleached out from my memory,
kiss wiped so a new kiss may be,

and so forsake this moan and vetting.
Part of love lies in forgetting.

For the dVerse Poets prompt, we were to take one of the given lines and to make a poem of it, using each word of the line, in order, as the the beginning word in each line of our poem. The the line I chose precedes the poem: “Since there’s no help, come let us kiss and part.”

      Thanks, Dolly. You, however, are queen of the kitchen, although you’d be glad to know I’ve spent most of the past two days in the kitchen concocting new recipes for beef stew, sloppy Joes and other freezable stockpiles. I nearly ruined the beef stew by adding some of my homemade Sangria instead of red wine, but saved it in the end with homemade beef and veggie broth, sour cream and a few spices. It is now delicious. Wish you could have a bite.

      Thanks, Rob…Would you believe that the first time I left out one word and after finishing the poem, had to go back and rewrite the last two stanzas because the rhyme pattern no longer worked once I put it in. So I actually wrote the poem twice.
