Can’t things just remain the same?
He shook his head reading the paper about another closure
As if being single wasn’t hard enough
Now where would he meet women? He hated Tinder.
Going on Twitter just made his skin crawl
Even though this virus likely wouldn’t kill him, his love life was RIP.
Bubbles piled high upon the water
As she slipped underneath the water’s surface
The hot water became intimate, kissing her whole body
Her need to breathe forced her to surface, but she still felt the love
Fasting may bring spiritual focus
Enlightening the spirit
Enhancing the person as a whole
Don’t starve yourself from love though, feast there and be merry
Love came down as a baby
Igniting a beacon in the night
Giving hope to those in the darkness
Hope to those that had lost it
That all could find their way back home
Until her twenty-third birthday, Abagail thought she was special
She would walk around like the queen she knew she had to be
Everything changed when she met Chuck
Love left her vulnerable, lowered her confidence
Esteem shrunk under Chuck’s manipulative eye
Soon she was relegated to being just his wife and not his partner
She told herself it was for the best. Otherwise, she would be ….
I program them
Yet right now they suck
Really it is more me
I cannot get things to fit
Even though I want to give up
I will try again to make it work
I must struggle, learn, and then I can teach
In this poem each line has one more syllable. I wanted to try something different. I hope you enjoy.
Really can’t believe you said “I do”
Even though it was twenty-three years ago
Because I still hear the echoes of those words every day
Each touch and smile deepen my bond to you
Could never imagine not taking this journey with you
Counting myself blessed beyond any measure
Always and forever yours.
Bob bristled at Angie’s comment.
“Love isn’t blind,” he said. “Love sees everything. Every wart, every defect. Everything. Love just accepts all those things and keeps giving hugs. Love wants to show you that it’s okay to not be perfect, to fail, to do something stupid. Love is there to be wounded, kicked to the teeth, and spit upon. That’s why love is considered folly by some and ludicrous by others, but in the end, love wants to see you be the best you you can be.”
“But Charlie is blind in the book,” Angie said.
“But his love isn’t.”
The rose bit Olivia’s finger, releasing a single scarlet drop
Hendrik felt horrible. She was the love of his life and he had caused her pain
Olivia sucked at her wound with a small pout on her face
Realizing he needed to do something, he leaned forward to seal it with a kiss
Never seeing the rose as she smashed it into his face
That in between light and dark
When magic was at its strongest
Isabel cast my spell
Looking for a way to win his love
It may seem silly to most people
Giving this a try
Hell, she thought it was silly herself
That didn’t stop her from hoping they were all wrong
