A Fool In Love Never Dies


Yes I am jealous
From your every footprint
You leave behind
Heads turn around
In awe of your beauty
The trail of scent
You leave behind
Intoxicate my very existence
From every distance
Perceived or imagined
I am drunk without drinks
The scent of desire suffocates my lungs
Consumes my every waking seconds
Consumes my every fallen shut eye
To the nightmares of unfulfilled dreams
A fool cries surrender his silent screams
I stumble tumble fall like a vagabond
Homeless absence of shelter
Absence of mind
Where words are not kind
To describe the torture of me
A rope hanging from your tree
Chocking the essence of me
The nectar from you Daisy
Drained all aspect of me
Feelings I have for you
My life spread under your feet
A fool, love sick, my story, my treat
Consumes the sap unbuckles my strife
If I can not have you in this life
I attach myself to death itself for release
Tonight finally I sleep let go of my tease
Useless rhyme waisted from my tongue
No one will ever sing or play my song
I said my last goodbyes with dying eyes
A fool in love never dies

    I had fond memories of my wife when reading your poem. It is amazing how love can make us feel and react. I think love is the binding force in the universe. A great write Paul. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
