1008 Love Across The Stars - Poem by John Knight

From a distance
Two hearts can beat as one
From a distance
All the illusion's gone
From a distance
Our love goes on and on
From a distance

Through persistance
I reach out to you
Through persistance
I feel you reach out too
Through persistence
Our skies are always blue
Through persistance

By existance
You are my stellar friend
By existance
We have bucked the trend
By existance
Our love will never end
By existance

Through our lovedance
We can share intimate things
Through our lovedance
We fly on Angel's Wings
Through our lovedance
Such pure release it brings
Through our lovedance

From a spacestance
The Earth looks blue and green
From a spacestance
The ocean meets the stream
From a spacestance
Your inner beauties gleam
From a spacestance

From stellarstance
There's no future and no past
From stellarstance
Here in present time we're cast
From stellarstance
Please make our passion last
From stellarstance

Just by happenchance
We lead our magic lives
Just by happenchance
Love - Joy & Peace contrives
Just by happenchance
Always lovespoons - never knives
Just by happenchance

In our circumfrance
Our love is so complete
In our circumfrance
With astral kisses - hugs replete
In our circumfrance
All tickety-boo and neat
In our circumfrance

For our pleasance
We make contact every day
For our pleasance
Our love is always bright and gay
For our pleasance
That's all I need to say
For our pleasance.

This is another poem exploring the possibility
and potential of love through CYBER SPACE.
It really does work if two poeple really have the
intellect - experience - depth of emotion -
power of love and a poets heart. When it does
work it results in love on a far higher and purer
plane - than mere physical love. It really is 'Love
Across the Stars' and it is so so Perfect and
Beautiful - ENJOY! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

(John Knight - Colchester - December 2009)

To the English Language purists (and I have studied it intensly for over 75 years) I apologise for inventing some new compound words such as LOVEDANCE and SPACESTANCE AND STELLARSTANCE and for some apparent MISSPELLINGS (they are intentional) . I am a poet and I don't believe that the rules of classical ENGLISH spelling and classical ENGLISH grammar apply in MODERN POETRY and especially in LOVE POEMS. In my book you bend the rules to fit the mood of the poem. Poetry Rules OK KO! ! ! ! !

    Like the different conceptions of distance and it's effects. A scientific styled poem with a viewpoint of love! Tres different and most appealing. (smile) (Report) Reply

    In an original way, beautifully, from poets is born new words, and this should be welcomed only, / on mine opinion, certainly./ 10...
