A Different Love


There was very little physical about their love,
It went well beyond all that,
Like two Swans whose necks intertwine,
Creating an everlasting bond,
They embraced, floating away together,
Into the Eternity of Time,
Forever

    Yesterday, Sept.15,2014 I was Queen for a Day. But not of a Country nor a Kingdom
    I was allowed to enter a tiny corner of the hearts of those that read this simple poem,
    What a Joy! Indescribable.

    To be able to touch others with words, make them feel, maybe a tiny instant of Love, beauty and illusion.
    What better Kingdom?
    Thank you All for reading and for your lovely, comments! Every one of them touched me deeply.

    I also want to thank PoemHunter for giving me this honor for which I am truly grateful.

    It is the same love what many preachers had preached to develop in the hearts of human.. Here, you have written about the friends, but loving an enemy may change our mind set to believe the effects of the eternal love in one's heart, mind and body, that's the reason the sages look younger to their age..so to look younger we have to develop the feeling of love for every human around the world, just like these two swans intertwined with their necks not with the corporate deals

    nice poem.. Congratulations (Report) Reply

    Simplistic, indifferent to stylistic form and traditions, yet as beautiful as two swans necks intertwined, floating together within the waters of eternity. (Report) Reply

    Beautiful words Sandra. You are like a photographer. You always capture the moment. (Report) Reply

    The first line of your poem grabbed my attention. The physical story of love eventually, or immediately, leaves us so lonely and wanting. So, I had to continue to read your poem to find out what was the nature of their love. Nicely scribed, with regal imagery. I agree with an earlier comment, that this poem is written as if it could be read in one breath - to mirror the penultimate moment of true love. (Report) Reply

    At first, it felt a little bit cliche, but overall, I really liked the simplicity and modesty. Nicely done. (Report) Reply

    Congrats on your poem of the day. This is exactly what the world needs a love with a deep connection that is felt without all of physical mumbo jumbo some confuse for love itself. Nicely done. (Report) Reply

    Lovely poem. Gives such a mesmerizing feeling about love. Loved reading it as a member poem. Congratulations. (Report) Reply

  • Daniel Brick (9/15/2014 7:02:00 AM)

    This is a true expression of love, a higher love than we normally conceive, the sort once referred as a Platonic Love.
    Shakespeare wrote a brilliant but knotty lyric poem THE PHOENIX AND THE TURTLE(DOVE) which expresses these same sentiments. Your poem would certainly help people confused by his lush language, Back to Sandra's poem: I like the way you made this one sentence by using commas to extend it. It all takes place in a single breath, a held breath in this suspended moment in which we acknowledge the truth and wonder of an uncommon love. (Report) Reply

    :) love sees nothing...
    only cares about the partner...
    how strongly they are bonded..

    Like two Swans whose necks intertwine,
    Creating an everlasting bond...
    lovely! ! ! ! (Report) Reply

    You didn't have to use many words to make one yearn for the connection you've described. Beautiful Sandra :) (Report) Reply
