PROMPT #325 – BE MY VALENTINE

It’s Valentines Day! Write a love poem. Or a “Hallmark” poem!

MARIE’S HEART:

NO WORDS FOR MY LOVE

My love for you is deep,
yet my words steep in
tepid water.
No flavor; nothing to savor.
They begin, but fade,
delayed by … what?
A depth I can’t reach,
though I beseech them.
A well with no bucket.
A spell I can’t cast.
My tone, a droning bore.
I wish my words would
soar
surprise
rise

revel

to the level of love.

WALT’S LIVER:

WERE IT NOT FOR YOU

Were it not for you, I’d probably squeak by in this life,
Without your guiding light, I’d lose my way,
Not every day, but enough to notice it.

Were it not for you, I’d be okay,
But just okay and not the man who is made better
When your light shines upon him.

Were it not for you, I might find myself
alone, in a quiet home with nothing
but these four walls to talk to.

Were it not for you, I would never have known
How to truly love, and never know what it is
To be truly loved by one so true, were it not for you!
