This Way Forward

the contract was signed long ago
determined to honor it then
and do still even now
today, tomorrow and forever
here doing what’s best
for the union of these two hearts

a lifetime of lessons
shows us that harmony is paramount
maturity can prevail
if we choose it
letting love take the lead
with dignity and grace

taking
the
path
of
least
obstruction

Reblog – Maybe Someday by Michnavs

I just love the easy rhythm of the romance in this piece. For a few different reasons, it reminds me of a special someone. 🙂

michnavs

maybe someday I will be
your sweetest melody
soothing your lonesome heart
in splended tranquility
serenading you
just, you

maybe someday I will be
your happiest thought
easing your anxiety
in times of despair
musing you
just, you

maybe someday we will be
writing together, 
a love poem duo
on a stop over
in a train station
to Paris

Maybe someday just you and I
by the train station
to Paris

in perfect serendipity.

A Faded Romantic's Notebook

Seed

You can try

every cure, every potion, every remedy,

you can erase it with drugs, with sex, with religion

you can cauterise it, crush it, cut it, crucify it,

you can freeze it, forgive it, forget it, fuck it,

you can deny it, defy it, deride it, destroy it,

you can burn it, break it, belittle it, betray it, bury it,

you can hate it, harm it, hurt it, harangue it,

you can trick it, tear it, trap it, trash it,

you can eject it, evade it, evict it, eat it,

you can poison it, persecute it, prick it, prune it,

you can shame it, shatter it, smash it, suck it

you can ruin it, regret it, reduce it, rape it,

you can inject it, intimidate it, isolate it,

you can leave it, lash it, lose it.

You can try

every spell, every enchantment, every charm

Forget me not

She told me, flattery will get you everything.
Please make me feel loved and wonderful.
I need someone, to be their, everything.
Even if just sweet lies dear Poet.

Divina Primavera

—-

I remember the long Summer days and us stealing kisses and dancing near the lake.
You were my elixir of the sweet new Germany September wine.
Your kind words of love torn away years of misery and regret.
You told me often. Lover’s love and they demand more in the midnight hour.

Forget me not my love , she whispered.
The canvas of life is for us to create.
We can paint with a gentle touch or conspire to leave broken pieces of art,
where love can be dead and bury.
Blood art leave final resting place or love descended to glorious places.
Leave memories of sweet kisses and many dances for the moon and the…

Reblog – UNIMAGINABLE by Onah

This reminds me so much of those first heart-felt crushes in my teens when all love felt a bit out of control. Enjoy!

HUMEPOETS

NOT MORTAL

I don’t know
how it’s
all going
to end,
but your eyes
draw me into
a tunnel
that leads
to your beauty,
not of mortal,
but an
unimaginable
world,
of my own
volition,
am your captive,
and why not?
where love
is the only
song playing
in my heart,
ringing in
my head,
knocking on
my mind,
I pray the
rhythm and
melody never
end,
so I remain
a prisoner
of your love
forever.

Reblog – She Loved Until She Lost Herself by Angelique Rose

Raise your hand if you’ve experienced this. Why do we do this to ourselves?

Never Silence the Madness

She loved until she lost herself

She gave until she was empty

She hung on until her fingers bled

And her hourglass was hungry

.

.

She was an inveterate long time lover

each chapter in her life

sewn together neatly between each love

.

.

Never knowing how to say goodbye

Never knowing when enough was enough

.
