A True Lover


I love you
I love you too
says every Mr. A, B and C
to every Ms. E, F and G.

Significance.....few know
Substance........a few care
Semblance......the few realize

Love is killed at alter of love
an eagle mulls killing a dove.

Acronym of love bares it all
L.....for lust
O.....for orgasm
V.....for virility
E.....for ecstasy
Any one absent heralds showdown
whites, wheatish, yellows or browns

Affection, concern, longings
caring and sharing
passengers of backseat
bodily attributes only subjects,
left to treat.

I forbid self to say
I love you
I rather prefer to say
I miss you.....I miss you
If I truly love you.

    a good one and rightly said that true loving is missing.........One who fills the vacuum in your life is your true love! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
