Ed oh dear Ed, your poetry is worse than mine. Maybe you should just stick to you story telling. It is much more enjoyable..LMAo

Here's one I wrote the text spacing doesn't work in this box so the flow is lost here but you can still probably feel the emotion:

Thoughts spin and wonder
Created and constructed
Around a vision
A woman
Soft
Sweet
Sensual
Smooth
My emotions
Wow
Amazing

Bliss

Can not control
Don?t want to control
The yearning, burning, wanting, longing
All
Around a vision
A woman

Entered my existence
Grabbed my heart
And
.
.
Gently, softly
Pulled it into hers
Her touch
My body
Melting
Her look
Enters my soul
Feeling her energy
My spirit ascends
Realizing
This vision
This woman

Reality
Has come to be
A love seen in dreams
But never felt
IT is here
SHE is here
Letting go
IMPOSSIBLE

Growing, loving, feeling, touching
Experiencing
Sharing
LIFE

Exploring, learning, sweating, amazing
Intense
Passion
LOVE

The union
Evolving Deepening Unending

The future
Wide open
The possibilities
Endless
All
From a vision
A woman

I can't remember where this come from but all the same, I wanted to share it..

"To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one. Not even an animal. Wrap it carefully with hobbies and luxuries, avoid all entanglements and keep it safe in the casket of your selfishness. But in the casket - safe, dark, motionless, airless - it will change. It will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable".

Yeah, I am a Daddy's girl. I wrote this poem while thinking of him.
Thank You for Being a Man is the title. Thanks for baring with me.

Thank you for being there for me,
Thank you for our family,
Most guys would have left us,
Most guys would have given up,
You stayed with us,
Thank you for being a man,
Thank you for being there when I was sick,
Thank you for being there when I was bad,
Thank you for being there when I was mad,
Thank you for forgiving me,
You love me for me and always have,
You love our family,
Through love, hate, happiness, and saddness,
You stayed,
Thank you for being a man,
Thank you for showing me I can be more,
Thank you for not letting me settle for less,
Thank you for giving me a reason to live and love,
Thank you, Daddy, for being a man.

Author unknown to me, I just remember my Grandmother reciting it to me as a child:

So many people,
So many creeds,
So many paths that wind & wind,
When all this world needs is just the art of being kind.

I can't let Bon Bon outdo me here:

There once was a lad from UK
Who never really could say
What was best about sex
With his bow legged ex
But he thought her a very good lay!

Hello everybody!
Just wanted to say...great poems! I too love to write, and have done so all my life. Poetic liscence is a wonderful thing...Anybody have any recommendations about any unusual/profound little gems?

A very beautiful poem Alberto. And the two stanzas you picked out ring well for me to. I had never heard of Neruda. Thank you for sharing this poem & introducing some of us to this poet.
Where are you by the way?
Cheers!

There was a bird
who lived in an Oak
the less she spoke
the more she heard
why can't we be
like the wise old bird?

There once was a barmaid in Creole
who had the prices of ale
tattooed in Braille
on her behind
for the sake of the blind

Babies have no hair
Old men's heads are just as bare
Between the cradle and the grave
Lies a haircut and a shave...

Timeless Passion

How sweet the surrender.

Speculation garnished with supreme thoughts

I savour the purity of the knowledge we seek of one another

I glimpse into your minds window to see visions of you

I gaze from afar at chapters yet to be written

You have embraced me, accepted me and unknowingly graced me with your charm

To be perfect is to be flawed and to be incomplete is beautiful

Prompted with questions and listening intently you embrace me gently.

I savour your mind with delight.

Your thoughts fixed to my memorization and I feel treasured.

Like a Matchless Pearl . In awe of its beauty.

I cannot have enough. Never enough

Timeless and Endless a Passionate Dream
