An Odyssey Poem: The Love Sick Boy
Start writing a post

Someplace in a far away land

Lies a house on a hill where a boy lives content

Perfect was his world full of glee and delight

Two parents who love him with all of their hearts

His life so perfect where nothing could seemingly change it


Until one summer's day he spots in the corner of his eye

A ray of sun beaming across the room piercing his heart

Long golden locks and ocean blue eyes

She seemed the odd sunflower in a remote poppy seed field

However, if only he knew she was a masquerade

Her beauty only a disguise from what truly lies underneath


In bliss and in love the two lived inseparable

Not a day passed them by when they weren't together

For she was his princess and him her prince

Hey stuck out to each other like a race car stripe

Able to see one another despite their hearts going a million miles an hour


Like magic she had him under her spell

Once a young boy now turned to a man

And like Newton's apple that fell from the tree

Down, down, down he went with no one to catch him

But his loss in her eyes as he looked deep inside them


No longer has that lasted as one day he saw

His love he thought forever his was now forever gone

With another so ravishing and looks ever so charming

He stood there is fright as his thoughts shattered his heart

And left him alone in a state of cold bitter darkness


His heart like a bullet going 100 miles per hour

His car like the gun shooting him out of its case

For his car too fast going faster, faster

Like a roulette, driven by confusion and anger

Lost traction on the road poorly paved

And there he went down, down, down without any trace


Into the night, forever gone

Like that, he disappeared


Tragic the loss of the poor love sick boy

They all pitied his story and prorupted his sorrow

For their love was the story of Romeo and Juliet rewritten

She was no maiden and he was no prince

Just two persons in love and a heartbreaking mistake


Once upon a time in a far away land

Lived a house on a hill where a love sick boy laid

Torn his world full of distraught and sorrow

Two parents worried for him with all of their hearts

His life lost to the selfish maiden that changed it
