this is a wonderful poem. I especially like the insight and advice and the theme of letting love overtake the fear and other negative emotions. the only thing I would suggest is to try to make it less repetitious and more concise: something like this: (I would eliminate the first verse)
our life book begins: liabilities shared past matters naught our existence paired
our dreams joined hearts finding love anew joined by coincidence we cast askew
dismiss old prejudice disown past fear renounce the scorn of wasted years
elation replacing bondage euphoria from hopelessness
rapture we are one!
just my view on it. it's your poem, so if you feel it should stay the way it is, that's fine.
Thats so nice that you have found that ....Despite that fact that its a lovey poem ...and i usually dont find them that wonderful ...I really enjoyed reading this ..and i love old fashion feel to it .... Good job
Your repitition is wonderful in the beginning, but the consistancy of the poem is deisrupted when you change the format. I would try to somehow change the last 2 stanzas to have the same repition as the 1st 3. Otherwise than that good writing and good flow, good emotion, too.
It sounds as if you tried many things to try and rekindle this romance many many things. Maybe some worked for a little bit and others did not. But it shows devotion to try things beyond experinces that would normally be felt. So, love is a fire that merely a little lightning can inflame again, I wish you the best on your journey friend.
