Fool For Love

Day 1 – April 2016 PAD

The first prompt of 2016 … Robert Lee Brewer

For today’s prompt, write a foolish poem. It’s April Fool’s Day, after all. Let’s loosen up today with a poem in which we’re fools, others are fools, or there’s some kind of prank or tomfoolery happening. Fool around with it a while.

Fool for Love

Everyone tells me …

Love conquers all

Perhaps for some

but …

all love has ever done

for me is play me for a



Some tell me I am

too trusting…

too gullible…

too insecure…


In reality I am

someone who

gives too much…

cares too much…

wears my heart openly

only to have it






Now, at this time in my life

I am a Fool no more

Love is a word used so often

that it is meaningless

rather than that one special word

in a group of three we long to hear

from just the right someone

at just the right time

Words are meaningless

Actions are the only truth
