Love in Ten Sentences

The challenge I was given was to write a poem about love and title it “Love in Ten Sentences.” Now, it must have 10 lines, each 4 words long, and every line must contain the word “love.” At the end of the poem, I’m to include a favorite quote about love. 

Thank you, Staci, I will accept your love challenge. Visit Staci’s wonderful blog here.

(Y’all have no way of knowing how many times I had to write this poem in order to feel satisfied with it. I’m not sure I achieved complete satisfaction, but my efforts for your reading pleasure are below.)

His love appeared quietly,
True love: effortless devotion,
Whispering love over me.
While I dismissed love,
Love, he has guarded.
Our love, a possibility,
As love questions timing,
We never escape love.
My love inside poetry,
His love, silent kisses.

For you see, each day I love you more
Today more than yesterday and less than tomorrow.

  1. How you did that I may never know ~ but well done.
    Love tends to flow pretty well with you, whether on a high or low so in a sense of this ‘forced poetry’ it worked well (that is a compliment…really it is, ha ha). How is this challenge even possible 🙂


    • I don’t know how I did it, Randall. I just tried. This challenge was pretty tough, as one of the four words was already taken. Why love flows high or low, from this mind of mine, I’ll never know. (Giggle. I get you. It’s okay…plus I could use a little more criticism from you. My head has swollen to the size of a watermelon with your visit, as it is.) This challenge is possible because someone likes to torture nice women like me. This is what I get when I’m not looking. Hey give this to Audrey…let’s see what she does with it. Kinda like Mikey from back in the day.


  2. I LOVE it Audrey. You rock!!!:-) 🙂 🙂
    Of all people that could write a rocking poem about love, you’ve gotta be on the top of the list. I knew it would be amazing.
    🙂 ❤


  3. Golly, Audrey, this challenge would have reduced me to a quivering mess, I’m afraid! But, you nailed it, my friend — well done! Now you can rest easy, huh?!
