The Real Love Rose …

By: Eddie Mahdhi

The Real Love rose…

If i am, a real, natural born poet,

Long-lost, in this world, as a

singular dreamer,

So, endlessly, wandering, in

quest, that, upset,

Despite all, i know, that,

somewhere, is, the one flower…


Alas, up to now, just been, at


So, except, wasting,

unfruitlessly, time, with fakes,

I have kept, jailed, in

narcissistic, hidden, faces,

Who, under cover of love

roses, have been, snakes…


From now on, i won’t delude

myself, anymore,

Nor, keep drowning sorrows,

in dirt-cheap, snacking time,

In so far as, naturally, i am not



Thus, i, will, keep looking for,

the one, soulmate rhyme,

And, however painful, i will,

never, let down,

Even if, noone, knows, where,

Real Love, has been sown…
