, ....Teenage EMOTION on Loves Highway


Loves highway draws teenagers
....... on thru the night
.........Emotion lays heavy
.............in their hearts,
... held in the whirlpool
..........of their own love
‘Too Young’ whispers melodically
.. like ether on the air waves,
.......As Lightning strikes, .
.......thunder accentuates
.........the radio crackle,
Lashing rain draws the elopers
..........closer together,
.....Driving thru the night
.....in love struck earnest,
......The power of love
...envelopes their bodies,
....Nothing will appease
....their quest God sent
Onward over the hill on and on,
..Looking for that little chapel
.....way down the highway
Ringing its golden wedding bells.
......Their car speeds on
fuelled by parental anguish,
. Whose words spin round.
in their heads
Painful arrows
fly thru their hearts,
In reality of space and time
love knows no limits
From young to old it abounds
with gentle hands,
For a loving heart
so easy to dismantle and break.
‘You’re a Christian and he’s a Jew,
‘He’s so young and so are you’,
Too late the words
to love filled ears
Cupid’s arrow fell
to younger years,
The wedding bells grew louder
the chapel in sight
Sealed with a kiss,
the end of his and Juliet’s flight
In arms together
to hold this very night.

    ...'love knows no limits
    From young to old it abounds
    with gentle hands,
    For a loving heart

    ‘You’re a Christian and he’s a Jew,
    ‘He’s so young and so are you’, ...

    These lines sound a bit autobiographical...the 'high way love drive' reads good...enables to sight a lot of avenue truth...10 (Report) Reply

    Too late the words to love filled ears
    Cupid’s arrow fell to younger years, ,
    The wedding bells grew louder the chapel in sight
    Sealed with a kiss, the end of his and Juliet’s flight,
    In arms together to hold this very night..love knows no bounds and it is eternal and finds its own way inold or new fashion...lovely poem with clear marking of love....10

    you're a christian, he's a jew
    and I'm an hindu
    but love sees no caste, creed or color
    lovely poem dear Ken,
    whether teenagers or we adults
    all go on the same Loves Highway.

    Yes, they know everything at a certain age and you know nothing; and never the twain shall meet..it bears repeating, but your poem does a more succinct job of conveying the truth of the matter..(smile) (Report) Reply

    this on eis really hillarious, representing the rebellion of the youth, no matter how strong the winds of tradition are, they move on the highway...... (Report) Reply
