How Can I Tell Her? - Poem by Doom and Gloom

How can I tell her, for I am lost for words
That hers is a love so precious and fine – a sip of elixir from one so divine
A moment so precious I want to freeze time.
That this is a passion I want to embrace – as deep as the oceans and as timeless as space.
My happiness hinged on the smile on her face

How can I convey, for words aren’t enough
That she holds my heart in the palm of her hand – I fear it will leak like fine grains of sand
Forever dispersing the life we had planned.
That my love is eternal and always shall last – Never diminished by the future or past
To burn so bright though time so vast

How can I express, what language can’t say
That you expel darkness and brighten my day – keep all the nightmares safely at bay
Anchor my mind and keep madness away.
That I am devoted entirely to you – in all that I say and all that I do
My love is pure and totally true.

    What a great poem. I have a friend named Neil, and I love him a lot. I thought it'd be fun to see'f someone had the same name was him. Looks like someone does! Great poem, man. My advice? Just tell her how you feel, and be direct about it. No more messin' around. I love my Brian as well, just tell her how you feel. I'll tell Brian, (Neil) as well.: O)

    God Bless, and keep writing! !

    Excellent poem, very very good. I understand how you feel, though due to recent events all my hopes have been torn apart. But again, good poem. (Report)Reply
