When Once Started It's Hard To Stop
When once started within our hearts,
     love infuses all of our parts.
It flows through our brains in our blood,
     trying to fight it does no good.
Seems like the common sense I had has departed
like lassoing a tornado when once started.
Itís hard to stop human nature,
     attraction assures our future.
Years come and go, become the past,
     whatís in our souls was meant to last.
Love teaches us to enjoy life to the last drop
for once that freight train gets rolling itís hard to stop.
Author's Notes:
Just another love poem.......done in a Wrapped Refrain created by Jan Turner.  It consists of 2 stanzas of 6 lines each; Meter:  8,8,8,8,12,12 and rhyme scheme:  a,a, b,b, c,c.
Refrain rule:  In each stanza the first 4 syllables (or 4 single-syllable words) in the first line must be the last 4 syllables (or 4 single-syllable words) at the end of the last line.  This is what wraps each stanza with a repeated refrain...thus the Wrapped Refrain.
Optional:  The first stanza refrain and last stanza refrain can be joined (or loosely joined) together for the title of the poem.
