Some quickly written attemtps at poetry

I used to be good at this....


Love is an Ideal...
To reason Love out is impossible...
To define Love is to limit Love...
To quote about Love can be heresy...
To live for Love is to invite pain - and joy...
To seek Love is Quixotic...
To run from Love is tragedy...
To laugh at Love is comedy...
To play with Love is cruelty...
To part with Love is to part with hope...
To strive for Love is divine...
To fall for Love is faith.


Decades could come an go,
Oceans, even worlds, could separate us.
Nothing would make me stop loving you!
No! You have captured my heart,
And made me your prisoner.
But when you are gone I am lost, listless and
Everything losses it's taste and texture.
So, please don't be upset when I try to
Tell you, as often as I can, I LOVE YOU!


Your Eyes
Eyes of brightest blue called
Me into your waiting arms.
Eyes so warm, I watched as we
Kissed, gazing, locked in bliss.


Love hates me, though I know not why.
I have been willing to heed its' commands,
Fall under its' spell and trust in it,
And yet it delights in cutting me down.

Love hates me, though I believe in it.
I do not doubt that true love exists,
I do not doubt that true love can
Find someone and bless their life.
I do doubt that it has plans for me.

Love hates me, so why do I try?
I try because I believe in love.
I try because I see it all around
Me, making lonely singles happy couples.
I try because I love!


There is no empty room in my heart
For me to go to and be alone.
You have occupied every space and part.
I just wish you would call it home.


I wish that I could find the words
To say what is on my heart without
My mind getting in the way.
I would tell you of my love and
My need to be with you. I would
Tell you of the loss I feel whenever
You're not near. I find it hard
To breath and eat whenever you
Are gone.
And yet my mind stops me for fear
Of scaring you too much. I pray I
Will not be the cause
Of any confusion in your life.

...Maybe not so good anymore


  1. Very good. You definitely have a knack for poetry and this is coming from a published poet.

  2. I like the 5th one Mike.
    Very nice. You're quite a romantic!

  3. That's not an attempt at poetry. That's a master poet talking!

  4. f8hasit - Thank you and it is Hopeless Romantic

    Secretia - Thank you but I wouldn't go near that far

  5. Just my opinion....but there are not enough hopeless romantics left these days...let alone ones that write poetry!

    Double Whammy!!

  6. Gillian - I think I would like to be a Hopeful Romantic one day

    DUTA - Thank you!

  7. “Love is life. All, everything that I understand, I understand only because I love. Everything is, everything exists, only because I love."
    ~ Leo Tolstoy

    Keep up the good work!
