I Am In Love - Poem by Akhtar Jawad

I am often so attracted,
Mesmerized and enchanted,
Having watched pretty things,
With magic in their wings,
Flying at human height,
Touching eyes like a light,
Getting inside very deep,
With a pleasant soul peep,
Then my eyes smile,
Making heart juvenile,
And I say to myself,
Put book in the shelf,
Watch beauty an' sacrifice,
Your self, may be nice,
I then sing like a dove,
I am now in love.

    i think those pretty things are drones of a foreign government, or sent by your wife! and the lights in your eyes are laser beams peeping into your brain to pick it clean. (i mean obtain all of your knowledge, oh wise one!)

    be careful (of) what you fall in love with!

    nice! bri : ) great rhyming! to MyPoemList.

    do you care to have it in December's showcase? it would fit nicely into Section B. (Report) Reply
