A Love Poem For Anyone... - Poem by John Tansey

For you, the hapless peruser,
who happens to thumb upon this page,
along a dusty shelf of books.
Was not haphazard at all;
For the page found your thumb
as it was fated to be,
as the effect finds the cause
and the cause finds you.
the heart bleeding reader.

If you would these words for you
then will it so.
for the subjective was never anyone
but the objective was always you,
the sensual stranger,
the romanticizing, lusty lover
who never turned my corner.

    Encapsulated from the first to the last John. I had to read it a few times, and i noticed the more you read it the better you enjoy it. 'the romanticizing, lusty lover
    who never turned my corner. ' Excellent my friend. Regards Craig.
