Genius Of Love - Poem by Thoughts of a Single Man

Tell me what will you really do
When the wait is finally through
And you can see who is really true
Will you sing to the heavens above?

I for one will cast my sail
On the sea of love and a new found trail
Free from the bars of my mental jail
For I am the Genius of Love

I used to get lost in a strangers eyes
I used to lust for the firmest thighs
I used to melt from the sweetest sighs
Held in a voice over the phone

I used to think they could be mine
And invested so much of my time ‘
Why I even wrote a few some lines
But in the end was left alone

You see time is funny as it moves
The deepest scars begin to soothe
And the cheapest smiles begin to prove
That they were nothing but a cruel joke

Some women claim to be good and do no wrong
Write words of how they are pure and strong
And know they are lying all along
And in the end they surely will choke

Because you can never fully swallow deceit
No matter how lovely the eyes or how pretty the feet
The taste of realty will never be sweet
For those who walk the crooked path

Those who seem to have no shame
Hide the existence of their married name
Or have five Facebook pages never the same
Now they only make me laugh

For in here there is no such thing as a friend
Because almost every so called woman
Never sees the man but wants the pen
So they began to lie and sneak

They think a comment is all they need
But they are not roses simply weeds
And I know the ones who don't bother to read
And that is what makes them so weak

So it matters not the games that they play
For I ignore every empty word that they say
And could care less when the fade away
For they were never really here

Whether large wide curvacious or slender
None shall ever love me tender
For I now know and will always remember
The answer as I smile from ear to to ear



That real love is not found in a note or blog
It is that whisper in the fog
The crackling fire that burns the log
And a hand that you can actually hold

It is to know the person behind the face
To feel the grip as you find her waist
To kiss her lips and love the taste
And to be able to warm her from the cold

And yres I have made mistakes
Tempted the vengeance of the hands of fate
Looked for love in the wrong place
Always hoping to find something real

But as time has lapses I have learned
That love is a girt that must be earned
And the ones who are false I am not concerned
For all my wounds have healed

So as I wake for another dawn
And wait for the words in me to form
I fond that something new is born
And the pattern of my thoughts is clear

That I shall not look and shall not search
Beneath the rock or the highest perch
For the one will come and reveal her worth
So there is no further need for tears

Tell me what will you really do
When the wait is finally through
And you can see who is really true
Will you sing to the heavens above?

I for one will cast my sail
On the sea of love and a new found trail
Free from the bars of my mental jail
For I am the Genius of Love

    A beautiful title given to a lovely poem. Love is a spiritual spark that brings in its wake alot of bliss in the lives of people who are fortunate to experience it. It comes at its own time and might make its exit if it's not nurtured carefully to blossom. I like the articulation and insight of the piece. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply
