Miss 23..Thank you for such a warm compliment. Yes I am very passionate about life. I love every moment and cherish it greatly.. I love poetry. Its a reflection of a beautiful heart and soul and when I read poetry written I feel the depth of mind of the writer. I do enjoy reading what all of you have written. Isnt it wonderful how writing of heart can bring the warmth of different souls together. I love it. Thank you....
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,
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.
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?
I hate poetry. But when I split from a women I loved I was inspried:
This one is to Veronica, my ex-girlfriend who was an angel. My love was and still is, unconditional. The poem is about how I felt the need for restraint rather than reciprocation when we exchanged words during my departure because I knew that harsh words would hurt her long and hard, and that need for restraint even though her words stabbed deep. My feeling was that I'm a strong man and I can take it. For her.
Title: For I am Strong and must protect you
Your words cut deep,
yet I don't react.
For I am stronger,
and surely a like response would break your heart.
That I could never do,
for I must protect you.
Your actions tear me inside,
and I accept and remain calm.
For I am strong.
I can take it and I do.
I will protect you.
So you hurl insults
and put me down,
tell me it's over,
and try to make me cry.
Yet I don't cry out,
as surely I know I could return the same and more.
But I don't.
Because I love you and I must protect you.
I will be strong for you,
even as you say good-bye.
And I smile.
To protect you.
