Poor Man’s Love


Vibrant colors of red have engulfed the vision,
Chocolate wrappers with silky skin,
Heart shaped world it seems, a little overrated,
Cute softie teddies roll their eyes, spin, spin,

Vibrant colors of red have engulfed the vision,
Sparkling heavy stones, those diamonds forever,
Champagne fizzle in seconds, a little passing moment,
Candle light dinning over towers, lights go blur, blur,

Vibrant colors of red have engulfed the vision,
For the hearts that bulge, for the ones that break,
To care and to be cared, the essence of true love,
The others are gimmicks, wake up; shake, shake,

Vibrant colors of red have engulfed the vision,
Those red roses, tight hugs, kiss on the cheek,
Words not needed, no questions asked, no answers,
Love is about simple true actions, so to speak, speak.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
