Write a poem that could woo even the most locked heart
The poem should be from the heart, as all love poems are. Write one to make someone fall in love.
No word limit, but try not to make a novel. 1 poem per poet On your marks, get set, go!!!
Vous êtes l'encre qui remplit mon âme

There is a Word
There is a word that stands out above all others in the lexicon of every language a small word, a David among Goliaths but a mighty word, formidable in its concept.
It’s a gift that can be shared with the one at your side, right there to touch, to speak that word and take comfort in its truth.
Or it can be sent to one far away one you may never meet eye to eye, hand in hand, nor ever hold in your arms but one that you will keep in your mind, and in your heart forever.
I would carry that word into battle as a shield. face any attack. vanquish any foe. I will survive with that word and I will die with it.
the word has been honoured in verses and songs since the advent of poetry.
but you won’t find that word in my poem…
it is written in her heart.

I have been where you are or once were The sun shines more from where I stand I would rather not stand alone and I chose you
Refuse me and you will learn fast I will not go away silently I can show you how to smile again
I bring music, booze and even condoms I know how to show you a great time I wont even require a call tomorrow
However, you will feel at ease and even be able to sleep Our bodies twisted in all the craziness I saw you turn off your phone when you closed your eyes
et vos eritis mihi in mortem

I am not beautiful; not even pretty. Somewhere between grotesque and acceptable No nice personality compensates I am foul-mouthed and outspoken Drink too much, eat too much There is no veneer No show, no cover I am the asshole you see
I impress no one; I am true to myself If you have my love, you have earned it And it is honest; I pull no punches My words are foul, sharp, and flow freely I have no time nor desire for flattery; If I am yours, I am no one else's You will never be forced to doubt that Never question that I've proved it Never feel that I've lied Because I will be your friend first And after Your enemies are mine and we will laugh at them together.

A Poem About You:
I stay up all night trying to write poetry about you. But I seem to be crossing out every word that rigidly flows onto the paper. Out of 26 letters of the alphabet, I can't seem to string even a single word that's good enough to describe you. So two in the morning, between five cups of tea and tired eyes I realise; how do I write a poem about poetry itself?

I would compare your beauty to that of a rose, or a lilac, But in your presence they would wilt away. I would compare you to the goddess Aphrodite herself, But she would look away in sheer jealousy and shame. I WOULD compare you, But why compare the incomparable?
It's not solely upon your beauty but your eloquence as well. There is utter beauty in your words and knowledge, For upon each phrase you straddle my mind, Each word is a kiss to my soul.

Chestnut eyes with a slice of the sky, I am restless in his presence. No words spoken, my heart hums a lullaby. My lips are numb as I watch his shadow, Withering soul, my true love is gone.

Caressing you all over Gliding my hands over your shoulders Sliding my fingers across your back Stroking your chest with my palms Swirling the backs of my hands against your belly Slipping my fingertips down your sides Kneading your thighs with my forearms Pushing my knees gently into your buttocks Pressing my thighs against your calves Massaging my breasts into your shins Rubbing the tops of your feet with the soles of mine Fluttering my lashes against the soles of your feet Kissing the back of your neck with my lips Licking your tongue with mine Seating your cock inside me fingernails lightly teasing your sac How many ways can I say I love you with my body, soothe your aches so tangibly? And intangibly? Each caress, each touch conveys meanings beyond itself, deeper than the flesh being touched, seating itself in the soul.

LIGHT OF MY LIFE
Tickle' Pink, The Light of My Life Happiness when I made you my wife I’m so contented you’re in my world That I’m your boy and you’re my girl A keepsake tied tight, roped to my heart Bundle of Joy, never we’ll part
Never the type to tie me down Feeling the safety “certainly I’m sound” Cherishing your smile, loving your laughter Other men envy and try to run after But I keep you close each Day and each Night Strung up for Safety; a move only right And if you were ever to loosen a knot I’d bury you neck deep and I’d let your ass rot
I see the stillness of dusk, a patient unveiling of you.
My copper cup holds clearness, well water for the thirst burning you.
The stars blink after the sun's fire, wanting the promise of velvet night
while we find each other.

ITS AS SIMPLE AS THAT.....
I LOVE YOU I've always loved you I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU It's as simple as that
I don't turn this love on and off To suit your moods or mine It's always there No ifs, no buts
Whether you love me or not in return Is of no consequence It won't make me love you any less
So there, I've told you how I feel I'm so glad that I did It feels good to finally share with you I love you unconditionally
Do with it what you will

IF You Would Only Let Me
I wish I could grant the moon amnesty just to keep you from seeing darkness Manipulate the stars into falling So your wishes could be in fingertip reach. I‘d even bribe your tears to flow from my eyes just to understand and feel your pain so we can weep on one accord.
I’d eagerly inhale every flaw, dent and crack in your existence; swallow your secrets tasting the authenticity of you just to lick your resin from my lips, so when your name slips from my tongue it will confess to the universe... I 'am yours
When life seems dim and laughter is dormant, I'll be your flicker of light in an opaque world I’d coerce the sun to relocate in your eyes just to be the reason behind your smile and the shine in the gloss of your skin. I’d knock down your wall of Jericho remove barricades opposing love...
push through the doors of your conscious so our minds could make love together, ever so close in proximity of your heart. If you would only let me love you, I’d selfishly tip over life’s hourglass so our time together could remain endless, because forever is simply not long enough
to spend my life with you
Reading is dreaming with open eyes.....

i've found without doubt that i would die for you and that's just lovely but i've found out something more that if i would die for you then maybe i could live for you because you've showed me that the love i have is yours so i've been thinking i could love you like a trilogy with all the mystery of the story not yet told i'll be your king, be my queen and govern love with me we'll write an epic to swoon the lovers told of old
and maybe i could love you like a manual of war with smart defences and strong reserves to calm the fight but there's a time for every story and i'll be making sure that you hear erotic tales of romance every night i know that i could love you like a thriller for a while and you'd probably like it but i don't like to see you scared there are lots more chills and spills among the stories i've compiled but i'd like to keep us clear of the dramas there
i can't protect you from everything but if its something that i know i'll be there to help with setting out a plan and if i've got some average choices and can't decide which way to go i'll turn to you because without a doubt you can i really don't mind my love, which story is being told just as long as we are reading from the same script and i don't just read stories i can dream them up myself so i've given some thought to the times you're wings were clipped
bring your dreams back from when you felt grounded and if you like we can look at them again to be seen afresh now your fears are unfounded and dream some dreams that you couldn't have then so take my hand and we'll skip down our yellow brick road we'll stand claim to what our shared hearts intend we'll make love on a hillside above an ocean abode and i'll hold you close until long after the end
