Love Was Once Green

  • If I speak in the tongues of men and angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a tinkling symbol. And if I have prophecy and know all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And if I dole out all my goods, and if I deliver my body that I may boast but have not love, nothing I am profited. Love is long suffering, love is kind, it is not jealous, love does not boast, it is not inflated. It is not discourt

Love Was Once Green

If only your eyes were green like when we first began talking, back when your voice was gentle beckoning my mind to write the words, "I love you."  Past tense back when my feelings meant something to you because before nothing, there was something.  If only your hair was long like it used to be, back in those days when I was free, and did not have to keep my hands near my tongue in fear I would say something wrong.  Oh where could have we been this very moment if you would have stayed the way you were, and had a positive attitude.  I find the beauty in the ugly, the way you used to see, before you noticed all the microscopic ugly in the beautiful.  Just because my dreams are lies, I do not control them when I sleep, I'm right with the world at night, may I guide your lips to taste this ripe slice of moon in the sky.  If only you could see things my way like you used to, so I saw yours.  Until I became abused, cut up and used, hung from a razored rope, your electric tasered scope eyes expose the black better, glow in the dark sun setter, star collector, red infected black dissected; if only your eyes were green like they used to be.

i didnt feel i wasted my time when i was reading this.Your point was well received; however, I would suggest putting a little more effort into your poem to give it that unique quality that captures your reads attentions. I found myself drifting from your words as I read this it was a bit tedious.

I love your comment and it's funny you are one of the first to bring this is up, because it is very true, although I do it on purpose :) - Good constructive criticism though, and appreciate your time.

pocket, When a poet states the facts of the matter as clearly as you have here, then the reader knows that what once was is now a horrendous travesty. This my friend is excellent poetry! ginga

Green with jealousy for the one she loved. We all change, sometimes not for the better, 10 for this unique and interesting write.

Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.

T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
