Last year as I was chatting with a girl friend, the topic went into love and about falling in love (she was inlove at that time but the guy doesnt seem to care that much). She said that “Love makes us poets” (she was so in love that she makes poems about the guy)… and as we continue chatting about her feelings. I was inspired to write a poem about what she said. =)

Love Makes Us Poets

Love makes us poets, making art out of words
Love makes us poets, pens mightier than swords
Love makes us poets, making emotions fly
Love makes us poets, on a natural high

Love makes us poets, the flow of thought
Love makes us poets, for the heart we sought
Love makes us poets, intellectual treasures
Love makes us poets, for emotional pleasures

Love makes us poets, feelings are written
Love makes us poets, writings are spoken
Love makes us poets, from hearts and minds
Love makes us poets, to mouths and hands

Love makes us poets, of poems and songs
Love makes us poets, by rhymes and tunes
Love makes us poets, putting sugar and sweets
Love makes us poets, on the paper sheets

Love makes us poets, of joy and sorrow
Love makes us poets, remembered tomorrow
Love makes us poets, for now forgranted
Love makes us poets, for now unwanted

Love makes us poets, the word sculptor
Love makes us poets, the idea painter
Love makes us poets, like the Greats from the past
Love makes us poets, memories of love will forever last.

As we are about to end and say our goodbyes, I sent her this poem. =)
