It’s easy

To fall in love

With me,

Like remembering your

a, b, c’s or

1, 2, 3’s.

The ecstasy you feel

At the sight of me,

Is like a basic principle

That you are able

To process

Without any trouble.

It’s easy,

You see,

When you take

My hand in yours,


When you pause

For effect, saying:

‘I am forever yours’.

The words slide off your tongue

Like money slipping from

A Politician’s paws

During campaign season,

The love defies all reason,

Your eyes glisten,

You declare that

Not loving me would be treason.

Falling for me

Is easy,


Loving me

After calling me

‘The One’

And keeping your word

In the long run,

Is much easier

Said than done.

  1. Nicely written piece. The final part of the poem is one that a lot of people can relate to, which calls for a deep reflection on what real love actually stands for 👏🏽
