Headed back to the poetry well today with a crack at a love poem. Truthfully, I started out writing something different. I have been trying to write a poem about driving down the road alone for about a month and a half, since I took that trip to Las Vegas.
Since then I have had 2 other long car rides by myself and during the drive I come up with all kinds of great poetry ideas that I don't write down (cause I am driving). It is a particularly lonely experience and I have been trying to recapture that for a poem.
Today it just wasn't going. So I took a 180 and tried to do something more positive. I have wanted to do another love poem for a while, it has been several poems since I tried one. I hope you like it. It is sort of how someone wants to tell the world that he is in love. How the mere sound of her voice is a song he hears and wants to match it in kind. Anyway, thanks for reading.
A Song of Love
I want to say these words each day,
You've set the fires of my soul ablaze.
To place my heart on display,
And sing a tune for all your praise.
A song of love and deep devotions,
Played aloud so all my listen,
This bursting music of my emotions,
For all to know a new love is christen.
No melody can sound so sweet,
As the one that holds your voice,
Yet I shall sing a life complete,
So the world will know my choice.
All manner of songs I'd make for you,
A ballad to hold our love on high,
Or a happy song to chase the blues,
Even a cooing, soft nighttime lullaby.
For you I'd write a symphony,
That would shame the greatest composer.
A full and pleasing euphony,
Just to bring us closer.
Yet all the music on this Earth,
Can sound but a sour note,
For nothing compares to your worth,
And the voice in your sweet throat.
I'd gladly trade my others senses,
Taste and touch a simple price,
Even sight and smell are just expenses,
To hear your words my only vice.
I long for you to call my name,
Or say those words I want to hear,
Until then I can but proclaim,
Your are what I hold most dear.
End of Line.
