Lovers And Liars

by Jenni Marie

They say you have to kiss a few frogs before you find your prince
Took so long to find that I thought he didn't exist, wasn't convinced
But babe seems you got me believing once again in a fairytale
Love shown each and everyday is proving maybe this time it will prevail

Always been quick to fall in the past, giving into dangerous desire
Then realizing I'd only found Mr cheater, Mr Wrong and Mr liar
Only this time it feels so different, thinking I've found Mr right
A once broken and shattered heart you've caused to ignite

Tried so hard to fight how I felt, all of those growing feelings
Only now I'm feeling sure, this is one love that's so appealing
Caring, gentle, kind, affectionate...finally found my lover
Never would have guessed I had so much to learn and discover

Always fell for the bad guy, proceeded without hesitation
Each and every time, heartbreak was my only destination
This time feeling so safe and loved, yearning for your touch
Never would have guessed it possible for me to love so much

Only been a short time, but I'd be bereft without you in my life
Would be trying to live, but already know I would only survive
Days would be long, nights so empty, leaving me cold and frozen
I'd finally truly understand the meaning of being heart broken

They say you have to kiss a few frogs before you find your prince
Took so long to find that I thought he didn't exist, wasn't convinced
But babe seems you got me believing me once again in a fairytale
Love shown each and everyday is proving maybe this time it will prevail

I loved your word usage in this poem! I liked the flow. Im kinda a punctuation nerd so not having commas or periods kinda bothered me. Other than that small detail...I liked the rhyming and how you repeated the first verse as the last. Keep it up!!

.. I've never seen a poem with long verses so flawless . Your flow is absolutely perfect .. And the idea is so amazing I really have nothing to say . I love it . I also love the repetition at the end .. It makes it even more beautiful . Seriously well done , 5/5
