Most romantic first line, least romantic second line

A local newspaper (in England) ran a competition asking for a rhyme with the most romantic first line… But the least romantic second line.

Here are some of the entries they received.

*********

My feelings for you no words can tell,

Except for maybe “go to hell ”

*********

Roses are red, violets are blue, sugar is sweet, and so are you.

But the roses are wilting, the violets are dead, the sugar bowl’s empty and so is your head.

*********

Oh loving beauty you float with grace

If only you could hide your face

*********

Kind, intelligent, loving and hot;

This describes everything you are not

*********

I want to feel your sweet embrace

But don’t take that paper bag off of your face

*********

I love your smile, your face, and your eyes –

Damn, I’m good at telling lies !

*********

*********

I see your face when I am dreaming.

That’s why I always wake up screaming

*********

My love, you take my breath away.

What have you stepped in to smell this way

    There’s a lot of emotion
    This love poem packs-in
    Our love is more dead
    Than Michael Jackson

    She is the love of my life, and without her presence I could only miss her.

    That’s exactly what I said last night to her mom and her sister 😉
