Wife Is Love


“Helloooo there! ” O my God her- SCENT-
Intoxicates my nerve endings, I tingle from head to toe!
Her walk, her stride, her high heels, I'm spent
Flashback of me through her path to a newer life!
I was: I am: I will be: -LIKE-
A slow dried cactus dying from -THIRST-
Whose core punctured by many holes
Fate snaps the bridge to its roots deep below
Death on the surface, then deep below: or suddenly -BOTH-
Alas! Absent are want and -NEED-
Want: to be desired, the nature of life
Need: to be wife is - LOVE-

Poem of the Day

poet William Butler Yeats

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
