Poetic escape


Your poetry takes me away
away from the madness
away from the pain
away from everything
that reminds me again
of how I hurt you
So right you were;
love and pain are eternally bound
they reside within the same sound
yet even then I find myself
floating away with your words
Amazing how simple a few lines
laced with emotions
like love and desire
words like care and kindness
how strung together
become the beauty of poetry;
simplicity
A chemistry of emotions
that leaves me breathless
and smiling
You always did make me smile
You are my poetic escape

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
