A Lover Knows


Poem Commentary

this still feels so true to me each time I read it.

A Lover Knows

A Lover Knows


Like dust on a flower and a velvety kiss

 A shiver in the darkness


Passion grows from depths of souls

A past of lovers young and old


Life is not simple, but complex and heinous

Charged with anxiety, regret, intravenous


Intoxicating, fearless as love begins

A world on lover’s breath depends


To thrive to go beneath below

a tender balance a lover knows

I reaaaalllly love this one!...It's simply complicated in its delivered meaning and communicates well how lovers who are truly and deeply connected with one another are just that!



Thanks again, you have it right.

Grito commented on A Lover Knows


A word, a touch, a long look back, on beat of heart, lust does not lack.



Thanks for your words and reading so many of my poems.

I hope you don't mind this comment. I like this poem. The first and second stanza {{bravo}} the third stanza sounds a bit forced and contrived. It regains momentum in the fouth and fifth stanza. A couple typo's: Change breathe to breath. and the plural of lovers possessive would be lovers' lover's would be singular possessive.



Thanks for your constructive comments I will change the spelling and look at the third stanza to seek improvement s soon as I can edit.

The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Poet (1803-1882)
