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.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
