‘The fragrant of love’

Come and enjoy John’s romantic poem – THE FRAGRANT OF LOVE

johncoyote

The fragrant of love

I whispered to your closed and resting eyes. I love you, I love you.
I need you, I need you.
I kissed your face and I kissed your hands.

Your skin is glistening from the lights of the soft candles burning near and
I whispered to wanting ears.

Winter is almost gone and the warm days of Spring are here.
Kind lady, you are my ambrosia.
You are my wild Gypsy’s dream and
you are my love curse.

When I see you and when I hear your voice.
You make the sane man become drunk in love.
Love should be a free and wild river where emotions run unshackled and free.
If the kiss too sweet, if the words are too needed.
What shall we become?

I love you, I love you.
I want your skin against my skin and I need to feel the softness…

Out Of The Grey

My heart slipped its moorings,
and sailed to the deep grey
of lake melancholy,
where I was becalmed in a gloom,
a syrup of acedia so thick,
I couldn’t easily move.
But I’m not sure I wanted to,
perhaps I wanted to nurture the pain,
just a little,
and, just as I was
starting to feel justified,
I noticed the wind of change,
and my heart began to turn for home.

In Memory: “The poem is an invention that exists in spite of history. Most of the forces in our ordinary lives as we live them now conspire against the making of a poem.“

“The poem is an invention that exists in spite of history. Most of the forces in our ordinary lives as we live them now conspire against the making of a poem.

There might be some space for the published poem, but not for its creation: No ritualized space is given where one is allowed to sit and brood.”

An Epic Love – A Poem by Walt Page, The Tennessee Poet

Walt's Writings

This is dedicated to my dear friend and brother in poetry,
Ivor.Plumber/Poet. Ivor lost the love of his life Carole a few
years ago after she lost her battle with severe MS for
over 30 years. Ivor was Carole’s primary caregiver during
her illness and most of his poetry has been about her.
Please visit Ivor’s blog at https://ivors20.wordpress.com/

He misses her so much
His heart feels like it’s breaking
Everything he does
Everywhere he goes
Reminds him of her
He lives in a house of memories
And wonders when his pain will end
So many years together
Caring for each other
Caring for her as her illness worsened
As he sits alone now with his memories
Everything he does
Reminds him of her
So he turns to his writing
And picks up his pen
He knows she is watching
From Heaven above
And the words flow like love notes
