       love is something lost, but hardly forgotten.

    dotsthe pursuit...dots

    the message speaks of loneliness,
    and misery.
    the thought motions your heart to
    hasten, for
    an instinct credited by memories of
    love lost
    beckons tears to fall and eyes to look

    for being obligated to oblige motivation,
    with contempt,
    a gesture becomes our rationale,
    with eager compositions offering
    true portraits of assumption..

    love, then, becomes destined to fail.

      I loved this, a lot. It'll get a fav. The way you broke it up, and structured it, caused me to read it in a sort of bluesy scat or something straight out of a jason mraz song. It was intense, entertaining, and flat out captivating. I have to say the logic, combined with the style and flare, really make it stand above. Theres just something about that thing called love, that manages to inspire.

      well the killer word of all good comments has entered my system. this has been.... interesting... but i can't get rid of the feeling that i've already read something like this - in terms of the intentionally slow flow, in terms of breaking the lines the way you did.

    not that it is sometimes creditable- from the point of view of
    A) the meaning (the breaking disrupts perception in stanza 1) better do it:

    for an instinct credited by memories of
    love lost

    because like this FOR in stanza 1 will correspond with FOR in stanza 2

    B) the flow - in stanza 2: i think it would be better to break it differently, even though it doesn't really fit in with the general pattern:

    for being obligated to oblige
    with contempt,

    i like your budding and tethering use of what's the word? alliteration, like message-misery, love-lost, gesture-rationale... but it's not too profound to be noticed at first glance, and not too powerful; but maybe it's better that way.

    i like the somewhat clichéd and yet somewhat fresh (because of the way you put it) idea that we tend to create images of a person, and fall in love with that image; loving our fantansy instead of a real person; in which case love IS desatined to fail. with time - as the real person becomes too big/too small for our imagery.

      Wow. I don;t think I can fully comprehend that. It was deep, I suppose. I'm still trying to figure out why you had placed your stanzas that way, I like it though. However, I don't think I can agree with your output on this, not all love fails. =[ ah wells. Still, great work. I wouldn't change a thing, hun. =]
