Can’t Live Without Love

Accidental Poet


Without love in your heart

A lonely cold place

Constantly searching

An unfulfilled look on your face


A void humans must fill

To feel that emotion

The pull within your heart

A sense of devotion


Deep within your heart

That ever-burning fire

Your inner furnace of love

For another heart you desire


For in absence of love

A life loses the will to live

So, you keep searching

An inner wealth to give


And when that day comes

It’ll consume you like a tidal wave

Fill your empty heart to full

Peg the needle of your fuel gage


The loveometer now through the roof

The smile upon your face

Wide as the Grand Canyon

Certainly, a euphoric place

    So true AP. A life without love in your heart would be a meaningless one. A mature man once told me he had never been in love. I pitied him for what he has missed out on. I have so much love in my life, I feel blessed. I enjoyed your poem. A good write.

      Never been in love, now that's sad. Imagine his surprise the day he does fall in love. Sooner or later love comes to all. 😉🌹 Thanks Cassie.

        That would be a lovely thing for him;) You know AP, I don’t think it’s going to happen. He’s a bit long in the tooth and a cynical wotsit:))

        Such true words AP, living without love is awful.

          I tried it once when I was 9, I was miserable. Then on the first day in school I saw an Angel in the front row seat. And I've never been the same. 🌹Thanks Andy. 😉👍

          AP; a beautiful truth. Each of us deserves to be loved. We’re not meant to do this alone.
