    This brings to mind the image of love as war. The carnage left behind after two people have had their way with each other's hearts.
    It ends beautifully though, with the thought that maybe that one person is worth the fight. (Report) Reply

    We have found each other
    Thirsty and we have
    Drunk up all the water and the
    Blood; this is my favourite (Report) Reply

    Wait for me, my love
    take me in your minds heart
    take me in your mouth,
    kiss me when our existences
    are too far apart
    keep me in your dream
    hold me when fears hold
    on instead of your arms... (Report) Reply

    But wait for me,
    Keep for me your sweetness.
    I will give you too
    A rose.
    The most romantic lines I've read so far, simple, close, personal n touchy. I like his language style, they offer the connection a lot of poets lack. (Report) Reply

    It's as if, they both know they have flaws and mistakes. But the poet all asks is for a little faith in their love, that they don't give up or give in... because in the end, all will end well. (Report) Reply
