Love and Life


As this pen bleeds on this paper
I want to lay my feeling on the line
Like a scar that dawns ones flesh I wanna love you forever
Love you like I love the feeling of being loved by you
Love you in order to have the love you have for me
As the colour of the sky, I vow to love you within the depths of my soul and provide stability
Symbolizing the wave and emotions of the sea to the love we have internally
The words I speak are just words without meaning
Yet the actions I portray give me life and a sense of living
Its your air that perfumes mine whenever you breathe
Opening up my lungs and giving me life like you my artery
You are the sense of flow of blood in my veins
But through this membranous tubes you provide more than just blood to my heart
You provide love
A love that's inside is a love that has life
A love that has life is a love that love life
Your life I love because without you mine has no meaning
You are like natures breeze on my skin
Providing me with goosebumps every time upon you me seen
Poetry is defined as the work in which special intensity is given to the expression of feelings and ideas
You see you are my idea of what my feelings should be You are my form of thought
The quality of beauty and intensity of emotion
You are a conception of my own mental belief, my private intellectual notion
Love knows no bounds when you love unconditionally
I learned that from my mother and the love she has for me
Those nine months spend in her anatomy
Gave birth to love when she birthed me
I wanna be the son your father sees you with
A sun that brightens your day in the midst of mists
With you I found neverland
A lover, a sister and a long time friend
I'm in this for the long run
Let's turn these years into laps where we run and just keep running for as long as we can
You're a heavenly mystical creature that roams thee earth
Yes you're my angel
Maybe I still have a lot to learn about Love and Life
With you everyday is a lesson
You are my education

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
