This is not a love poem

I sometimes wonder about my lack of ability
to create sunrise words
where flowers bloom and dew glistens in the dawning light

Iíve no desire to recount the days of glory
only the days of past pains
because love should be lived
not written about in the vein of the greats
of hallmark Valentineís cards

I have no words to express the pleasure
of having my heart filled with that adoring ecstasy
at having found a soul mate

I simply wish to live and bask in the sunlight
of each dawning day
and write of the hardships
that sometimes torment me
like the demons inside
that whisper that I donít deserve
a second chance

this is not a love poem
merely an ode to things life gives us
that should be experienced in private
away from the prying eyes
of a voyeuristic world
