Easy.

easy_1_original

It’s easy

To fall in love

With me,
_____________________

Like remembering your

a, b, c’s or

1, 2, 3’s.
_____________________

The ecstasy you feel

At the sight of me,

Is like a basic principle

That you are able

To process

Without any trouble.
_____________________

It’s easy,

You see,

When you take

My hand in yours,
_____________________

Enamoured,

When you pause

For effect, saying:

‘I am forever yours’.
_____________________

The words slide off your tongue

Like money slipping from

A Politician’s paws

During campaign season,

_____________________
The love defies all reason,

Your eyes glisten,

You declare that

Not loving me would be treason.
_____________________

Falling for me

Is easy,

But
_____________________

Loving me

After calling me

‘The One’

And keeping your word

In the long run,

Is much easier

Said than done.

  1. Nicely written piece. The final part of the poem is one that a lot of people can relate to, which calls for a deep reflection on what real love actually stands for 👏🏽
