A Little More Love

For today’s prompt, we’re once again doing two-for-Tuesday prompt. So pick one, combine both prompts into one poem, or write two (or more) different poems. Here are the prompts:
  • Write a love poem. A poem about love, people who are in love, attempting to woo, or some other lovely spin on the subject. Or…
  • Write an anti-love poem. I know that for every lover there’s an equally powerful hater.

We are all broken... promises and self-serving ruses
And hearts full of cunning and stuttered excuses
We all need love; not the hug and run kind
But love that won’t hold us then leave us behind

We’re all mistaken, misunderstood misters and misses
We all need try-try- again’s cuddles and kisses
Why don’t we try, you and I, ‘ere Time softly shuts its door
To strive to love one another just a little bit more

We all need love; the heart without, is a hungry pauper
We all need someone with which to share our care and laughter
What a pity that we can’t seem to find a way to prove
What would happen if we all gave just a little more love
