crush, funny love, humorous, teacher,
by Daniel Turner |
As I look back, it all seems funny now
Recalling all those awkward teen age years
I pushed the limits farther than allowed
Supposedly when young, we had no fears
Infatuation caught me with the blues
My heart was swollen by love's gentle sting
It was a crush that only left a bruise
Left by the diamond in her wedding ring
The first day I laid eyes on her, I fell
The lightning bolt she was, that shook my world
And to this day I swear I'd know her smell
Could she have read my mind, she'd likely hurled
I hated school but never missed her class
She said she loved me 'cause I made her laugh
original poem by Daniel Turner

love, romantic, soulmate, together, true love,
A love built on trust
Our love flutters on calypso breezes,
cruising on the tropic of Capricorn
All of our anxieties it eases,
as mango sun wakes us this August morn
Passionate dew glistens on sun kissed skin
as we gaze at skies of peaches and cream
your essence incites desires within
We're enamored in this tropical dream
This is no cruise ship infatuation
We confess and reveal history's scars
tethered together in hearts migration
Promising love, under the moon and stars
Shooting stars ricochet through cosmic dust
Heavenly signs that our love's built on trust

to words that
cannot be spoken
only your heart can feel
your tongue has desired
at unseen visions
that shall never fade
that fascinate hunger
rebuilding broken hearts
create a new song
never expressed before
knowing you were loved

brought forth by proclivity
Flowers in mid-spring
brought forth by simplicity
you are my constant conquest
brought forth by fascination
devoted eagerness dwells
Sweet scent, penetrate
brought forth by aspiration
laying down while you compel

Infatuation one cold winter fell
like flower blossoms white to frigid ground.
The secrets that I’d never dared to tell
lay buried like the earth beneath each mound.
An awful truth so haunted me I hid
it underneath the softness of new snow,
and when I’d come to think that I was rid
of it, your love for me began to grow.
That love, like sun, shone fully; soon I felt
your strong desire to understand my heart.
You saw, when you had made the first snow melt,
the ground laid bare. . . it tore us not apart!
From sunlight, passion’s snow, and naked earth
was white spring rose I write of given birth.

hope, lost love, love,
With devotion lost
You stepped through a low portal.
Took control of my desire.
You captured my broken heart.

devotion, love, passion,
I tasted of temptation
With a pinch of infatuation
A touch of captivation
And a dash of imagination
With heaps of fascination
And a sense of excitation
With this newfound jubilation
You’re my favorite fixation
by Dear Heart |
I gave you my heart
and my infatuation
to ever entwine . . .
I leave you my devotion
at your stone cold tomb, engraved.

green, love, passion, romantic love, youth,
Wild grasses of my springtime heart unmown,
unruly, unrestrained, in silence grew.
Youth’s fierce infatuation madly blew
its untamed gales where tall, green blades had grown.
Fair birds of transient love have long since flown –
that tale’s dark thread unraveled. Segue to
the stunning, breathless moment I met you
and found the ageless love I’d never known.
As autumn yields to winter, hair recedes
brown-gray, and once-hard muscles dormant lie;
our fathomless love-light remains undimmed.
Spring’s passions redirected, naught impedes
love’s resolute commitment. You and I
adore our beautiful lawn, neatly trimmed.
by Jess Johnson |
I adore you. The devotion of my emotions are overwhelming. The fond delight of
lusting for you hits that tender spot. I am mad for the passion sent through my
weak body at the sight of your intensity. I respect your friendship more and more,
but that wild sensation makes me hot. I have an inclination that this involvement
is not infatuation, rather, its LOVE.

How to endure
When the touch of your hand
And every glance
Enflames my soul
Yet better this than a
And all hope’s embers

love, , sweet love,
Infatuation is what it's sometimes called
You can give it any name you'd like
I call it love, pure love sweet love
It's as easy as falling off a bike
No need for any special instructions
But your heart must be willing to share
All or even just a part of your heart
Almost everyone has love to spare
Nothing's really more important in life
It's the engine that turns our wheel
Can't think of anything that even comes close
For passion, for intensity, for zeal
Take it from me, an extremely sensitive male
Who loves life and the joys it brings
Once you discover the true meaning of life
You find all year round is spring

adventure, feelings, longing, love, nature, nostalgia, seasons,
Gulf breeze chime my chimes
What I say here pass it on
Spring fling beckoning.
A cat chases its own tail
Love begins at home.
Elusive wind blows
Bliss is like falling in love
I claim nostalgia.
Wrapped kisses with rose
A lonely hunter shivers
Love last a life time.

WILD AND FOOLISH LOVE
Knowing that you exist in my heart
Even when you always decked on your hat
To lure the one that has giving you tough
Times as you often attempt to ride on the rough
Edges of her frigid and rigid mind,
One is not amazed that blind
Love can easily turn someone wild
Although the individuals with mild
Hearts sometimes falls into wrong
Hands and it takes quite a long
Time to realize that infatuation
Breeds unwarranted tension and depression
Caused by emotional hurts and heartbreak,
That is usually the end story of a fake.

angst, emotions, encouraging, feelings, hurt,
In your fantasies passion
Yet your instincts tell you love’s
more than infatuation.
define who you think you are.
Yet in guise of innocence
promiscuity's not far.
In pursuit of happiness
trust is but an illusion.
And faithfulness is part of
Exaltation and sorrow
establish flexible norms.
For the fickle winds of fate
create emotional storms.
Hope is greeted with a smile
anything less is tragic.
For when you’re young and in love
you should believe in magic.

Why did you cheat on me?
At the time was she better?
Was her kiss a door
that opened to forever?
Did she feel you with love?
Or was that just infatuation?
Did she get a thrill
out of my humiliation?
If you weren't in love with her,
then why'd you do it?
Did you not really like me
and use her to prove it?
Why did you cheat on me?
I did not deserve it.
It hurts so bad,
you don't even know it.

devotion, faith, love,
a world of lies in my soul,
I thought I knew it was true,
it was a self depreciating infatuation.
I thought it was love,
but found out the truth,
just another infatuation,
like an addiction,
unhealthy for my heart, soul, and mind,
but clinging deep inside.
With this error in my past,
accepted who I was.
Now there is a true love in my life,
not a pitiful infatuation.
true to the core.
I was pulled from the mire that overtook me,
Saved from the life that laid down before,
and I feel acknowledged,
loved without disappointment,
and know that there is no longer an infatuation.

When I first met you
you were so cute that
my brain just couldn't compute
so I went mute
As I stared in awe
Wanting to know you
the reason my heart ached was
because of you
A girl much more than a pretty face
I never wanted to make love out of lust
but then I realized
that it was in you I trust
So I must change
to show you
this isn't simply a fascination

beauty, emotions, feelings, happiness, imagery, love,
Love arrives like a warm zephyr
slowly melting reality.
And arouses dormant desires
erupting as molten passion.
Hot smoldering embers fuel flames
that linger in private places.
And you experience feelings
far beyond infatuation.
It’s such an extraordinary
sensation you can't help but smile.
For it makes you feel euphoric
and unbelievably happy.
Love’s like an elusive rainbow
you exuberantly pursue.
And hope keeps fantasies alive
on the chance that they may come true.
When you feel you’re falling in love
your heart fills with exaltation.
And anticipation leaves you
feeling breathless yet wanting more.

In deep awareness, I drowned into dreaming in the velvet sky,
Liberated from well defined fantasy to find truth in love.
A twist from one commotion to another hanging above,
Her wild smile declared reality through my hazel eyes.
I scowled to stop her for her tease,
But she faded from the scene with speed.
To avenge these cracked ribs in overwhelming reality,
Ruthlessly, I smother this fantasy.
Yearning for our new togetherness,
Will she consider me above her likeness?
She beclouds me with ravening emotion
Deeper within, I was inflamed with infatuation
It is love that rejects all known breakthrough;
I am seeking divine ways to make a happy view.

Romantic dreams infatuation
Holding hands adoration
Puppy love with butterflies
Smiling faces big moon eyes
Teenage crushes so divine
Smitten by St. Valentine.

boyfriend, devotion, emotions, first love, heartbroken, love hurts, miss you,
Missing you what I’ll continue to do,
Nothing I say will make anything change,
Without you I will maintain being blue,
Depression will come; my life rearranged,
My infatuation will never fade,
My love for you will continue to grow,
Moving on I won’t but you’re still afraid,
Each day my soul will become more hollow,
You know that leaving will make my heartbreak,
You can’t say goodbye we’ll both be crying,
I hope you leave something a small keepsake,
While inside I will slowly be dying,
You leaving I wish not to even see,
In my future I want a you and me.

desire, emotions, feelings, first love, imagery,
Love catapults fledgling hearts
And as passion's flame ignites
hearts burn in exultation.
The human psyche places
trust at the core of our souls.
And innocence quickly learns
to explore sexual roles.
Feelings of jubilation
replace fear when doubts depart.
And encouraged by desire
hope takes root within the heart.
Fulfilling youth’s fantasies
love blossoms with every kiss.
And two lovers share a dream
composed of heavenly bliss.
