NaPoWriMo Day 5

Love Decides

When we forget to try, love runs and hides.
There is no bribe for love, as she decides.
Cussing and a sharp tongue scares love away.
In the same way that forgetting to say:
I love you, will cause love’s laces to fray.
If you love, in existence love will stay.
If she buries herself deep within,
(And there is little you can do to win),
She is worth patience, so leave love free to roam.
When we forget to try, let love find home.

In response to the fifth “The Shapes a Bright Container Can Contain” prompt from NaPoWriMo.net

I chose Tennessee Williams’ “We Have Not Long to Love” as a structural reference for this prompt.
