Love in Ten Lines

I was challenged by Finn for this amazing “Love in Ten Lines” challenge. And I’m always in for a challenge, so here we go! =) (I’ll post the rules, the nominees, and a quote below my poem, so keep on reading!)


Love in Ten Lines

How can I love
when love isn’t here?
How can I love
when love isn’t near?
I need my love
To love and hold
To show his love
– I love you so –
My dear sweet love
Keep your love close

  1. Your poem is lovely, Iris, and I didn’t realize I was challenged…well, since I’m not really blogging right now, I won’t pass it on but I’ll work on a poem. It might take awhile though. :) Thanks for challenging me! ♥
