Apologies for not coming back here earlier - I had some computer trouble.
Thanks to everyone for their input.
It seems my poems are 'saved' ;) I.e. I can used 'love'd'. Although the consonant/vowel-remark seems to a very good point.
Even so...: Two other consonant examples, which I hope can also be pronounced as one syllabe:
- there will've been many rides
- he might well've been describing himself.
