Rookie - 0 Points (October 18 / Ethiopia)


I loved you without knowing you,
I loved you because I saw you in us,
No pride or ego, in which there is no I or you,
I laughed in your mouth,
and slept in my eyes together,
Just short thirty days in November.
My problem is not to love you again,
but to un-love you for the month of December,
and if I love you in January,
I will have to first lose my sight.

    I laughed in your mouth,
    and slept in my eyes together, oh what kind of strength of love by the first sight, vision yet loses its need as gentle words when portrays the art of rungs reeling through grace, still blazing the glory of fame yet unconsummated, wonderful write yet ingenious flowing through eloquence as curved across unique genre, i like too much,10++++, thanks for sharing (Report) Reply

    Love is love, even though it can be love at first sight, if it has never been consummated, it means that it never left the trace behind...like the one I had, the woman behind my poems, stamped in my heart and mind...You still have the chance to meet a new one along the way...Like I am sure I will, too....well penned, great piece, letting your true feelings flow...10+++, Love and Peace, Romeo (Report) Reply

    Hi Emu - A lovely flowing poem with a poingnant message - I score it a TEN. Love can be transient and it can be cyclis - what goes round comes round. We can (as you know) love across space and time 'I loved you without knowing you' but if the love it not consumated it sometomes only lasts a month or even less. To unlove - even in cold December - is a bit sad but how do you love again in January. 'I will first have to lose my sight' - Sight of What? Because of what happened 'We slept in my eyes together' the vision can be restored and you can love again in January. Thanks for sharing - Love you in poetry - JOHN. (Report) Reply

    The month of December is point of transition between November and January so is this poem between love and separation. Nice poem, Emu.
    Best Wishes.
