Love Me Through Poetry


When was the last time a man spilled some ink for you,
I know at the beach he made you trot with one shoe,
It was all fun and romantic when he drew the tattoo,
Of a unicorn and a buffalo slow dancing in the zoo,
You gently whispered you loved him and his voodoo,



I never had any mechanism to enrapture your heart,
When he drove you around in the darkest street,
My ploy was poetic but you always fell for dark myths,
And you loved the tradition of men with beads,
I've been singing the mantra hoping you'll get the hint,



Your sweet memories are now dead and gone,
Of you flicking the cigarette on his back bone,
When you never had an ash tray at the lawn,
Yesterday you knocked on my door before dawn,
You said I'm sorry I had your poems withdrawn,
But I love you and wouldn't wish to live alone.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
