I Was Never A Hopeless Romantic

“I swear I was never a hopeless romantic, to begin with,

but I prepared all these for you, my love “

I was never in love with romantic love poems

I was never a love poet myself

I wrote ’bout life and its intricacies

about dreams and ambitions and endless possibilities

I wrote ’bout politics and pressing issues, and 

how we can make a difference amidst the flooding

unfortunate tales of humanity

I wrote ’bout deaths and the never-ending agony 

of losing and battling with grieving

I was never in love with romantic love poems

I was never a hopeless romantic, to begin with

I swear I could laugh ’bout how silly romance is

how tediously boring it could go, talking ’bout love and how

it makes you feel giddy, smiling all the time just the thought of love

the rainbows and butterflies and the sky oh, so blue

always referring to that loving feeling made me cringe

I was never in love with romantic love poems

I swear I was never a hopeless romantic, to begin with

but my world turned upside down,

in total 360 degrees turn around

you, just like a sudden downpour

out of nowhere

change my perspectives

my thoughts

my life

my poetry

I swear I was never in love with romantic love poems

but I’ll write one

and I’ll begin by saying

from this day on forwards

I’ll write a love poem

and 

it will be 

all ’bout 

YOU.

  1. If you weren’t a writer of romantic poems before, you’ve become an amazing poet now. Love this poem and hope it led up to its climax. Thanks Mich for this wonderful poem
