Love Transcends All

Poem Commentary

Everlasting Love & Devotion. This is what it feels like to me in a poem.

Love Transcends All



Love transcends all

chaos

betrayal

hatred

limitation

misunderstanding

loss

fear

 

I know that you are near

feel your heart pounding

your breath in my ear

 

seeing your radiance

knowing all risk of danger

come with me, lover

the vastness of life couldn't be stranger

 

Ageless, will our love be

even when it's balance we still seek

hold onto me and I won't let go

 

walk me through

where others only peek

and together, dare to dream

of what all desires gleam to know

 

-M. Jacobs

Eloquently presented. I love the idea of the journey taken together. I'm also a fan of bouncing around with the rhyme and meter. I don't think that poetry should be limited to a specific genre of poetry in every case. Very good :-)

Thanks for that open take on my poem. I agree that poetry is an expression and all expression, whether in perfect rhyme and meter or not, is still the writers intent to express something of quality, nonetheless. Sometimes I meet a poet on here, like you, in a chance way. I was just looking at the contest entries and came upon yours. I really meant what I said in my comment and welcome your comments and suggestion on any poem of mine. I really appreciate OP, as a site that connects me to the eternal presence of writing and I enjoy the exchange very much. Some days are difficult for me and I need this to pull me through. Thanks for reaching back out. Stay in touch.

(Sorry, I'm late, M) Take the new day, unknown, with a perspective and expectation renewed by hope and you have a fertile garden for love to grow in. It is the best of life, having zest for life: give unto others before they give unto you. Love leads before it follows...you have a beautiful spirit to have these hopes live and radiate from your mind! Applause Crescendo!!

TY, I was trying to express how I feel right now after 15 years with my Hubby. ;-^

In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
