Exploring Poetry - Rhyming Love that's not my choice

Writing is the best way through which a person can express his thoughts and feelings .The pen /pencil is the paintbrush that the poets uses to create a illusion of objects or thoughts to create a beautiful art with words.Thus poetry is something precious to be shared either by speech or by writing like we do with arts. If you ever ask a kid about poetry, the little one either comes up with 

Twinkle .Twinlke little star
How I wonder what you are
"When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze."

Anything or Everything that Rhymes is a poetry for a kid (I used to rhyme poems for that effect).Without Rhyming, a poetry book is not fulfilled , IMP .Welcoming everyone who stumbles upon this post on  "Exploring Poetry " prompt "RHYMING"

How to write a Rhyming poetry :
  1. Choose the topic or idea about what you want to write and just write in a free pattern
  2. Arrange the lines in groups of 2 or 4 or 6 or 8  in even numbers
  3. Organize the sentences and words to form a meaningful line
  4. Add a tune or rhyme to the end of each sentence
  5. For rhyming words ,you can either choose dictionary at home or at online like Rhyming Zone
  6. Choose any Rhyming pattern and go with it all along the poem ( AAAA, ABAB, AABB,ABBA)
The below poem is written in the rhyme scheme (AABBBCC)

Love that's not my choice

Love was not my choice until I met you
My heart melted with the love you brew
Slowly hooked
Steadily captured
Steeply engraved
It spoiled my sleep at night
Made your wrong moves right

In Love, maths of one plus one is still one
Forgetting all ,drowning in love minding none
Complex dealings
Imaginary floatings
Under Real feelings
It secured a place in my heart tight
Taming me to a person so quite

Love , ah this potion is so strong
I confess that I cant hold it long
Eyes playful
Oh!Life lulls
Longs sedatives for this twinge
Yours unforgettable clinch

Love - a small but a strong word
Commonly used and always heard
Staring as it comes
Striking the heart drum
Electrifies through rhythm
The music mingles the breath forever
Staying with us and leaving never

Show me a person who never Loves
He is Heartless - maybe someone has stolen it from him
He can never find the truth 
Until he believes that he too can love
