The reflection in the Mirror is no longer broken,
The flower in Bloom no longer stained,
The song that I Sing is no longer sad,
The Unconditional love I feel is no longer strained.

The Supernova I see is an explosion of desire,
The Unknown no longer compels me to fear,
If a Hospital is where I seal my fate,
Let it be known I died loving You, my dear.
It's official: The normally melancholy, cynical, and deep writer you've come to know has been replaced by a hopeless romantic dolt.
So sue me.
I'm in love.

That being said, I haven't lost my edge just yet. When I realized I was going to sit down and write a sappy love poem about my boyfriend, I decided I wanted to kick it up a notch.

So I challenged myself:

I took the title's of my personal favorite and most popular pieces of literature here on deviantART, and incorporated them into the poem. Not only was this a fun challenge for me, it seemed like a fairly original idea, and it managed to inject yet another message into the poem:

My past (in literature and in life) has helped shape me to become who I am today, that being someone who is capable of loving and being loved in return, as well as being able to write the occasional poem or story relating to the experience.

And not be cocky or anything, but I like to think my writing has improved a little over the years. ;)

Listed below are all of the pieces of literature that were incorporated into the poem above, in order of appearance in the piece. If you haven't read them yet, I hope you enjoy.

Forgive my hopeless romantic notions.

I love this piece of work. The BW in the background and the red umbrella to contrast it is done in a way that preserves the BW part.

forgiven. hopeless romantic is the one who sees romance in in the idea of love but still dreams.
You hopeless...? Maybe a stretch :) love the picture too.

YEEE!! I'm so happy for you! :D I'm still "forever alone" right now, but I'm rootin for ya! Welcome to the hopelessly romantic side! ;3 haha! and yes, your writing is marvelous. That's a really neat idea, incorporating other poem titles into yours! :O I may have to try that challenge sometime. I'll credit you obviously. :)

Thank you so much!! :tighthug: And hey, single doesn't always mean forever alone, someone nice like you should find their special someone in no time! :aww: And Thank you again! It's funny, the idea just sort of popped into my head, and when I put it into action the whole thing just seemed to flow together quite well! And you should give it a try, i'd love to see the finished product if you do!! :D

haha! aww! you're so sweet! X3 and I know that single doesn't me forever alone hence the "" marks. :P I haven't lost hope for finding my perfectly imperfect someone. Quite the contrary actually. I've realized that the only reason I'm still single is cause I've stuck to my guns and kept my standards. They're not unreasonable, but they drastically decrease my immediate options. XD So I'm just keeping a look out for my guy. :)

And it's a neat idea to pop into your head. :) I'm glad it did. I'll be sure to link you to the finished product if/when I do it. :)

Don't worry, there's more hopeless romantic dolts out there than just you :aww: I've been wondering where my cynical self has gone to, too; and to think it's all because of a guy I barely even know T_T
Also, love the idea here. I'll be sure to check out all your inspirations.
