I do not believe that anyone can do anything about with whom they fall in love or who falls in love with them...

It’s Not My Fault

It can’t be helped
You don’t know
Where the asteroid will strike
Where the hurricane will land
Where the tornado will touch
When the earth will tremble
When the avalanche will awaken
When the volcano will rouse
Where the rainbow will be born
Where rain will bless the thirsty land
Where the snow will soothe my soul
When I fell in love with you
It can’t be helped.

Yes, all forces of nature over which we have no control. Great parallels drawn between the elements of nature and those of the heart. Well done.

I completely agree. Helplessness is the strongest emotion in my opinion. I watch, I observe, and can't do a thing to help. And then there are words that can sooth the helpless, to know that someone somewhere knows the feeling.

How beautifully right you are, Reg! Whether it's the chemistry mixture that is just right, or cupid's arrow hitting it's mark, once overwhelming love hits us, there is no turning back...and that's a wonderful event in our lives! Kudos to you, friend, for this poetic explanation of love...
Blessings and Appreciation - Micke

Very nice, with a comforting feel to it.
Reviewed by Miriam Dufer 8/9/2008
This poem is screaming to keep going. The last two lines seem abrupt and do not close the poem. The title does not do this poem justice. The point I get from the poem is that love is comparable to nature. Nature can be random and elements can erupt or move at anytime. It is uncontrollable. With telling what is unknown, the closing needs to something that is known. An expression of how natural the love is and how uncontrolled the speaker is.

Excellent, Regis, not enough written these days about the mystery of love that finds us just as the storms seek us out. Most stuff seems to concentrate on one-night stands as though any old discovery that we seek out will do just fine. Thanks for putting the element of love back in love....Jerry
