An Affair Of The Heart - Poem by Jake Deeds

Two hearts beating, one warm one cold
How will this romance ever unfold
How will the passion ever be told
For the love of God please grant me one wish
Explain my love affair with fish....<><

    Lovely piece of poetry depicting an affair devoid of warmth and bliss. A well articulated and nicely encapsulated poem written with insight. A beautiful work indeed. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply

    hahaha! 'Must be a catch in there somewhere'...! ! ! That's a funny pun! I was trying to think of a good pun too, but since a love affair with a fish took me hook, line and sinker into some kind 'a dark place - I couldn't seem to quite set the hook, so it got away from me. :) (Report) Reply

    It's a good write. Humans are warm blooded whereas fishes are cold blooded. There is no bases for the relationship. Two wires can lap nicely only when they zig and zag in unison. Maybe you need to talk to your partner and ascertain what the problem is. I like the articulation of the poem. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply

    I too have a connection with our finned brethren of the saltwater underworld.
