Poem Commentary

The closest thing to a love poem ever written by me lol

"I Never Wrote A Love Poem..."

I Never Wrote A Love Poem…



Like the pristine blue of sixteen pools…
Your crystalline hue is glistening through
The reflection in my eyes paints a shimmering you
You make my blood boil, then turn it to a simmering brew



I’m so enraptured now…I’m hemorrhaging you
My heart clears way for the missile he shoots…
straight at my head…dismissing he’s proof…
of this projectile called love, kissing deep roots



Like the crisp clean hue of pristine blue
You’re shimmering through and glistening too
The reflection in my eyes paints a blistering you
You set my soul on fire, then extinguish with dew



I’m hopeless captured now…wrapped in kudzu
My art gives way to a painting unto…
she who’s spell I could never undo…
because this x-file called love is finally getting just due.



She carries no name because for this it’s uncouth…

I never wrote a love poem…

but this could be you.

Wow. This is amazing. You see all these people writing lovely poems about lost love and the love that they now bask in... But I have never read something like this before. How amazing! Thank you for sharing! I loved it!

This is true romance. I wish I knew who this was written to. She's a lucky girl. Your style is unusual and flows like a song. Did you intend it to be that way?

malik, The tile of this poem sent its aura out letting me know it would be something that was unexpected. Your piercing lines explain why a love poem can be risky. I commend you on this antithesis. ginga

Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.
