Modern Romanticism

The aspect of romance, divided between the heartening and the thoughtful.

Poem – “When I Fight for Love” – Romance – 10/28/2019

October 28, 2019

When I fight for love,
For the peace of another,
It is not me
Who wishes to be happy.
It is another, I aim to be,
Among for, in truest plenty.

To bless a peace inside an aching heart,
To stay for cheeks I’d kiss away falling tears,
To kiss even the eyes, themselves
As I’d always do,
When I fight for love, it is not for myself,
When I fight for it, the emotion, itself,
I fight for another,
And lift them above.

As their beauty raises me, I raise them.
As their tears wash from eyes of sorrow,
I kiss them.
I drink their pain away in this heated world,
Full of so much disgrace,
One fullness of a face, one pair of eyes,
And I am blinded and able to see,
I am wishful and able to breathe.

When I fight for love,
I offer myself
As a body full of greater pain
To hold the weight of the world, upon these shoulders made of stone,
And I’ll hold even more, and pledge those feelings upon my bones.



  1. I quite like it and its meaning. I can feel the emotion. Nice! 🙂
