Love Starved by Richard “Tony” Held


“True love”
Is an exalted word
If you have lived your life
Never once having tasted it
And go
Starving
On
In a
Loveless
Life
Wracked
By angst
And strife
In your soul
Over what might have been
Had you
Been braver
Had you
Spoken up
Had you refused to play
Emotional
Mind
Games
That “they” all say
You must play
In order to get a date
A significant other
Or a soul mate.

“True love”
Does it even exist?
Or is it as much a fantasy
As war being no pain
And all glory…?
Will somebody
Please
Tell
This
Starving
Soul
Who has
Not
Once
Tasted
True
Love
That it not only exists
But that the magic
It possesses
Is sweeter
Greater
More intoxicating
Than how it is depicted
In print
Or celluloid.
