I love to wander
amongst meadows and fields,
the sky's like blue satin
the lake's like a sheet.
The air's pleasantly cool,
as birds chirp and glide
and crickets, as is their wont
invent an orchestral chant.
There in a bower
two young lovers meet,
their arms are entwined
in a sweet embrace,
and quickly the sweethearts
with a lingering amorous kiss
seal their secret loving retreat.
Bells suddenly summon
a flock of white sheep,
I dare not count them
Afraid I'd go to sleep.
The spring is still gushing,
thin reeds in abundance
on the uneven edge.
Serenity surrounds me
All's beauty and grace
For Lord, you are everywhere
Giving us hope and care.

lost love, heart, heart, love, me,
A Mind Made Up
What are you looking for
Knocking on my door
Your heart to be returned
Now that I am spurned
With pleasure it is yours
Slammed shut are the doors
Take it in your hand
And try to understand
It’s no good coming back
When it’s love for me you lack
All my trust in you is gone
Since you found another one
No matter what you say
There will never be a way
You can talk until your blue
My love has gone for you
So take your heart and go away
And forever from me stay
No more knocking on my door
I’m not what you’re looking for.

absence, deep, depression, feelings, first love,
A Rose for my sadness
Is all I ask
Seal it with your kiss
And your magical spark.
A Rose for my sadness
Is all I need
With a glimpse of your smile
And sound of your heartbeat.
A Rose for my sadness
Is all you can give
To aglow the flame
And rekindle the love I keep
A Rose for my sadness
Will surely make me glad
It will erase all the longings
And ease the blunt pain.
A Rose for my sadness
Will bring your touch
Shower me with warmth
Missing you that much.

beauty, imagery, love, romantic,
inked by a dying sun
depict two lovers in
a synergy of hope.
slowly morph into one
subservient to the
whims of compliant hearts.
And azure pools reflect
a tie-dyed denim sky
as enchanted dreamers
seal their love with a kiss.
Twinkling stars confetti
the emptiness of space
as darkness descends and
shadows swallow last light.
Time seems to stand so still
and motionless they swim
to the depths of their souls.
by Connie Marcum Wong |
life, lost love,
Papers, papers that I never
thought I would have to sign.
Is that blood or ink drops
dripping on the dotted line?
Hair matted and stuck like
glue to a dirty head—
as I lay motionless, days
on end in my coffin like bed.
I never knew it was possible
to sob so hard you couldn't
catch your breath—
But now I know, living in this
agony— I would welcome death.
They say only Time will heal
all wounds, so I intently wait
for that elusive moment to come
that will soothingly seal my fate.

*This poem is dedicated to the
50% of you whose marriages didn't
succeed. I am happy to say I am
on the positive side this time.
by Richard Lamoureux |
lost love, sad,
Broken hearts don't always heal
Regrets may break the seal
Opened then crushed
Killed by Loves demands
Erasing all hope
No longer in command
Hearts that are damaged
Eventually will slow
After life's hardships
Repairs start to show
Tossed onto a pile
Such a sad place to go
Attempting a different style. Hope you enjoy.
by Chelsey Moore |
Our chemistry is a fire
Blazing with heat and passion
Our feelings are a never ending road
Stretched out with time to share memories
Our eyes are a sunset
Shining bright to create true love
Our lips are the chains
Locked together to seal a kiss
Our hearts are the doors
Open for new experiences together
Our thoughts are a love letter
Speaking words of deep meaning
Being with you,
Is the world to me
Because our chemistry is a fire
Blazing with heat and passion

death, introspection, missing you,
Not in an essence, or scent-
No spectral aura conjured by tears or laughter,
But through wishes left too late and unspoken
Guesses made in blue ink, seal stamped, and filed.
Your legacy pillaged and raped by suited men
'til it's extorted to to pennies.
Your smile and voice are buried in the stacks.
Documents, bills, and letters to be written
Fill the memory baring your name;
Your scent and laughter long gone.
Given choice, I would pick the lowest memory
Over the reality of perpetual argument and stress.
Perhaps it's better to have left only love.
by Benjamin Joshua Obeng |
addiction, allegory, appreciation, lost love, love, love hurts, soulmate,
If You were fire and I was Ice
I'd extinguish your flame every day
Or just maybe
You would cause me to melt away
We could never exist in each other’s embrace
Because when I hold your hand in mine
That would seal our fate
And that's fine because
Every Cold heart needs a warm touch
And even hot coals need to be cooled
Don't school me about temperature
Don’t make me graduate from my subzero degrees.
So let's stare life in the face
We can take a leap of faith
And there we would collide
Unruly fire and frosty ice
Your dying embers and my tear shaped drops Would be the last things that remain
Of you being fire and me being ice

love, marriage, wedding,
Kindled love, promises -
keepsake blue in her dress,
kindest heart in his chest.
Kapoks sway in soft breeze.
Kindred souls wed beneath.
Knowing joy, lives unite,
kissed lips seal - man and wife!
by Michael Bell |
cute love, dream, romantic, sleep,
White mushroom clouds dress ivory shades,
Shadow the moonlight,
peeping in purple,
lighting the darkness in our space,
I watched upon your hour of slumber,
A smile reflected enchanted face,
How much I wish a window to peep,
To share the dream within your sleep,
Herein I see the depth you hide,
Yet shallow the feelings you cannot hide
Then softly to kiss your lips to seal,
The moments slept you shall reveal,
by Michael J. Falotico |
If I could climb inside your heart I would
seal all the cracks that let love spill away..
I would breathe in to your soul with words
of romance and sweet times for all your days..
I would crawl into your dreams and show a
picture show of love and warmth that gleams..
But I'm just a man who could only offer a paper
full of words and kind thoughts..
A shoulder to catch a tear or two and maybe
some comfort of love I was taught..
Whether across the hall or a country away..
close your eyes and feel my words any day..
by Alesha Roche' |
love, day, day, love, i love you,
Remember the day i met you
Maybe you don't maybe you do
The way the sun hit your face
The way you walked and moved with such grace
Remember the first day we kissed
How our bodies went into a bliss
You see i love you with me
When i say love i don't mean like i meant love
I just know god sent you from above
Kodak picture perfect moment
The day i consented the truth of how i feel
Will reveal everything i seal
In my soul
Bold in what i say
Rememeber this and only this
Wish for me cause i will always be with you

emotions, inspiration, life, love, motivation, poems, poetry,
I cry a tear
That only I can see
My past, present and future
Everything I say
And all that I do
A little hazy at times
My tears I see through
Days I feel lost
And A little confused
But the tears I cry
They get me through
The meaning behind the glass
Looking beyond my past
I cry a tear into a jar
I seal the lid
And send it far
Glass tears I cry
I can’t deny
Stream of emotions
Before I die
by Mark Frank |
You still have all of me
These wounds will not seem to heal
Your seal remains forever in my heart
Your part reaches the highest peak in my mind
I can never be blind to what you did for me
There are some things that time cannot erase
This immortal love
Remains unto the end of time
As I enter the portal of my memories
I realize that you still have all of me!

bird, celebration, love,
Passion prances peace
Diamond’s arrow auras
Feather dove hearts fly
Love’s linking language
Watercolor words whisper
Cloth couples stitch care
Silhouette souls seal
Romance rings as regal rhyme
Forever full flames

feelings, inspiration, love, marriage, passion, romance, tribute,
Can I have this hand in marriage dear,
Can you grace me with "I do",
Let the angels sing to Heaven,
Let my heart soar with their tune.
Let us seal our love for we two,
Let no others interfere,
Let Evil, with his one good eye,
Attempt to trick and snare.
Let Age pass on his cares to us,
For bound, we are as one,
We'll ride the heady winds of joy,
Until another song is sung.
Until another song is sung, my love;
We'll drink the drink of fools;
Let passion be our compass,
And a blinding trust our rule.
Let us plant the seeds of new life,
That through Time will resonate,
Let our names be always dear to those,
Who we'll set then on their fate.

rose, valentines day,
passion and true love
woman seduces a man
fragrant rose ointment
in the sun's last blush
feelings are growing stronger

faith, life, loss, lost love, love, heart, heart,
I open my heart and let the poison in.
I don't notice it when it first begins.
But then little things begin to occur.
It's now to late for any cure.
I try to ignore these simple signs
I just sit back as the relationship declines.
Now it hurts so much I can no longer ignore.
My legs give way I fall to the floor.
I cry so much I soak the floor.
I wish the truth I had never found.
I hate this pain It hurts so much
I must stop it never be touched.
So I seal my heart In this musty tomb
Hoping someday I can heal these wounds.
Maybe then I can reach out again
And hope to find A loving hand.
by Sharon Ruebel |
love, sad, words,
your words were sharp and filled with hate
they cling to me and seal your fate
a broken saddened heart youve bled
and left an empty space instead
we often say the things we feel
which leaves the wounds that life won't heal
as a song remembered in lyrics fed
the saddest part replays instead
over and over the words flow through
like a darkened mask they cover you
loves gifts once opened so bright and new
need only two lovers to keep in view
alas there are some who will never believe
the beauty within only love may conceive...
by cecil hickman |
girlfriend-boyfriend, happiness, husband, life, love, romance, wife,
Sweet and tender, they seal a bond,
Movements caress preciously to all.
With trembles, they will call.
Especially of yours I am fond.
They cast spell like a wizard’s wand.
Captured I was, when I saw.
My heart tied in a ball.
Pressing onward I respond.
Lips such as yours are my delight.
When ours meet, emotional treat,
Sensual feelings ever so bright,
Ardor expands without defeat.
Each kiss of morning or night,
Our souls locked, lovers complete.

love, love, rainbow, , sweet love,
"Love Inside a Rainbow"
weave a mysterious magic spell
beneath golden glimmer of yellow Moon
cast a dream coin into a wishing well
as a love potion feeding from silvery spoon.
entwine soft fragile fibers flame
beyond dark drape of midnight hour
as the whispering wind haunting a name
as beautiful as love's fragrant flower.
thread silk strings of broken hearts
to heal hurt and pain with twilight's hue
seal with a kiss as fear departs
to carve initials inside a rainbow view.
sweet love radiates as passions dew
as vibrant as a rainbow's view.

Sages say it's wise to persist
In striving for respect over love.
Such counsel I readily dismiss
One is set here, the other above.
Respect requires a clinical bent
Empathy-empty in the joints.
But love lodges everywhere sent
Heals, blesses, and anoints.
Respect eschews a pardoned act
Fearing a weakness be exposed.
But loves sustains itself intact
Caring not for what is supposed.
Prioritize respect if still you will
Seal it fast in bones and soul.
Know though when life bodes ill
It's love that makes it whole.
by simona dancila |
autumn, hope, hyperbole, life, love, magic, time,
I can see it in your eyes:
Autumn Leaf in Paradise,
and I fear for all the trees
full of stupid theories
about never-ending summer
while The Big Hand holds a hammer
above all fragility
and I wonder if you see
Autumn Leaf in Paradise
softly glowing in my eyes
like an answer and a seal
in the last tree on the hill.
by Frederic Parker |
To lift your eyes slowly, unveils your face
I'll search its contour, what it may reveal
The world departs now and will leave no trace
Warm lips caress then bond, a fragile seal
This kiss from passion gives my spirit pause
Whether it's from love, or a burning need
To open desire, for its wanton cause
We'll live with our reasons lovers concede
I shall never squander this precious realm
I'll cultivate its field with a slow hand
Play in the lush garden that overwhelms
and enjoy its fragrance sweet, senses command
If love be of deed that a kiss could tell
Then time falls silent in its space we dwell
