Forever behold the fountain of love
But where is love now and where will it go?
What happened to the fountain of love?
What happened to the ebb and flow?
Why don’t the waters quench my thirst?
Why do the waters run in place?
Why do these relationships always explode?
Why do they tend to blow up in my face?
What happen to or forever hold your peace?
Why couldn’t she have held her peace?
Why is she suddenly on his mind?
Why is he down on one knee?
Who really benefits from this fountain?
When will I get to take a drink?
Why is she wading in my waters?
Why is she wearing my wedding ring?
When will I find my true love?
When will my prince come along?
Why cant he be as handsome as the last?
And what took the fountain so long?
Who would’ve thought it’d turn out like this
The fountain of love I forever behold
You know that when we say our vows
He’ll be watching from the window

As always, very interesting, and I found the story kind of like a dream.  But I like when you say "why do these relationships always explode?" because I've recently had one explode...or if it hasn't, it will soon.

well you are, but see, the topic ceases to remind me of itself. you just seem like a boy in that comment up there.

"I've recently had one explode, if it hasn't it will soon." vs. (typical feminie response) "george, we have to stay together and make this work."

Your poetry is so interesting.

It squirms as I read it, it doesn't like analyzation. Actually, all of your poems do that. I can't figure out what they mean, or what they mean to me.

Rocks.

thank you so much for reading and commentating. could you please be more specific. i know you said "all" and I''m interested in which "alls" you're talking about. is there a specific one you can think of? I love the inputism.

But why should I be specific, Alice? This is Wonderland, after all.

For all that you know, I could have gone through every single one of them.

right......so......is there any one that stands out specifically? when someone says my work is this or that it just sounds so vague. that's like saying your favorite food is.......food.

You sure don't play your own game very well ;)

I really like the Savage things one, it's strange and confusing, and When it Rains.  I really do think all of your poems have the soul-squirmy feeling to them <Shrugs>

What's savagism?

I wonder if you're like this in real life? Just a musing.
