Love is like a virus


Love is like a virus

Our minds never fail to fall

So it was with Anne


In some others minds

I was brave to court her

I was bound to fail


She was beautiful

I had a trick up my sleeve

I wrote her poems


It was a safe bet

My affection was unspoken

So she smiled at me


Later we were both

Invited to a party

“My famed poet” she said


“You’ve earned your wages

I think that I love you too

Can you support me?”


  1. You have to admire a woman who knows how to get directly to the 'heart' of a matter. I enjoyed this!

  2. nice....there are many ways of supporting someone.

  3. So sweet! I'm a sucker for a happy ending!

  4. What did you answer? ~ I love your ironical poem.

  5. Those must have been some good poems, even if the response was self-serving. The only poems men have written for me were so bad I ran the other way!

    BTW, I'm having some domain name issues right now, so I've switched to until I get things sorted.

  6. It is amazing what poetry can accomplish. Bringing people together is one of its greatest gifts,


  7. Words work their way into hearts, and turn heads. So does success. hmmmm... Nicely penned, OE.
