Brian Dorn Poems

Love is understanding
Love is compromise
Love is generosity
Love is sacrifice

I'm sorry for what I've done
I'm sorry for who I've been
Sorry for where its gone
So sorry to lose a friend

Poetry is sexy
Its lyrics aim to please

Welcome to my haunted house
Dare to see the dark in me
Suits of armor wait to joust
Eyes in portraits move to see

Uniquely different, you and I
But, doing as we damn well please
We're products of intelligent design
No settling for mediocrity

Perfectly fitted as if by design
Your five fingers woven in mine
Coupled palms sublimely connecting
Severed love lines now intersecting

From the corner of my eye
Hard to fathom what I saw
Turned my head as if to try
And into love so deep I fall

Who are you to cast these stones
As if your transgressions were unknown

So, this is what my speck has triggered

Searching words in puzzle mazes
Guessing letters in cryptic phrases
Solving clues across and down
Mixing jumbles with pronouns

Fighting wars just like before
Hate to think how many more
Hour by hour, dying for power
Digging graves and laying flowers

Reach out to the leaves
As they fall from the trees
All at once the wind makes them run

The Best Poem Of Brian Dorn

The Love Poem

Love is understanding
Love is compromise
Love is generosity
Love is sacrifice

Love does not discriminate
Love is free of charge
Love is the solution
Love is who we are

Love is universal
Love is heaven sent
Love was fastened to the cross
Love's greatest testament

Love is triumphant
Love is somersaults
Love is compassion
Love is free of fault

Love is forgiveness
Love offers a hand
Love is eternal
Love is His command

So brilliant, so real, so beautiful A reflection, a comfort, a need Each time i read your poem, each phrase becomes a seed It's planted, it's nourished, it's watered It pushes, it grows, it'll bloom to throw a measure of pleasure, on my subtle gloom Thank you Brian.

Brian is a wonderful poet. His poems are never difficult to read, but make you think and reflect on a number of issues. His light hearted ones make you smile :) Brian is also a very kind and humble person, that comments on the work of others and has something positive to say in the warmest of ways. We are blessed to have Brian Dorn on

Brian Dorn is a poet of the chiaroscuro - light emphasized by surrounding darkness. Both in form and substance, he exemplifies the highest ideals of poesy. - Will
