Some poems show us, the way love should be. The poem that the poetess Literary Bard wrote – Pedestal – is a poem based on what her mother told her when she was younger and was experiencing her first real relationship.
Years later, she used the lesson her mother taught her. She turned this lesson into poetry. This was an important message:
“Don’t ask yourself if you can live without them, ask yourself can you live with all of their habits that might annoy you?”
Can you? Are you able to step over this? Then you know, it’s good. It’s worth to cherish this and never let go. Just as this poetess told us, these words are nothing but the truth.
“Is there really anyone who can love every single thing about their partner, in every circumstance? The cynic in me says no, but to let go of that notion completely is not an option for me. I am a hopeless romantic and a sucker for a love story. This is my downfall. I put people on a pedestal and when they fall, because no one is perfect, I get crushed in the fall.”
This is love poetry from a higher level. A poem that makes you want to think about the relationship you’re in or you are about the enter. Are you up for this challenge? Ask yourself this question. This is not the easiest question to ask yourself, but it’s worth the while, right?
He welcomed every part of her crazy,
Cherished each sarcastic comment,
Held on to each cold stare.
Every aspect of her, banked in his memory.
He loved her,
Including her flaws, not in-spite of them.
