Home Sweet Home

This was never what we planned...

To be lost in a sea of dancing emotions,
unable to catch our breath.
Losing me, losing you, and all that we have left.
If fairytales were real, you said, perhaps we'd make our own.
Into your deep brown eyes, I fell, to find my home, sweet home.
But is this love, genuine love or lust that grows each day?
For now, we'll hold each other close until we find our way,
If fairytales are real, you say, perhaps we'll make our own.
Into your deep brown eyes, I fall, and there...
my home, sweet home.

The author's comments:
This poem is about being in love.
The overwhelming sense of comfort you have when you're with that person is truly indescribable. However, I attempted to do just that in this poem. Kiana

Life is like music - You can make mistakes so you try again. But when the piece can't be helped you try again another time.

This poem captures the need to discover true love that lies  deep in every young person's heart. It is touching.

However, I would reconsider the phrase 'home sweet home'. It is over used and cheapens your lovely poem!

Great job :)

I love it, but I think one of the things that sets it apart from the stereotype of love poems is the passing thought that it might just be lust. You don't portray love as this perfect, ooey-gooey feeling with an always happy ending, but rather just describe the sometimes and sometimes not so temporary comfort.
