I Am In Love - Poem by Akhtar Jawad


I am often so attracted,
Mesmerized and enchanted,
Having watched pretty things,
With magic in their wings,
Flying at human height,
Touching eyes like a light,
Getting inside very deep,
With a pleasant soul peep,
Then my eyes smile,
Making heart juvenile,
And I say to myself,
Put book in the shelf,
Watch beauty an' sacrifice,
Your self, may be nice,
I then sing like a dove,
I am now in love.

    I Am In Love
    How much fancy and how much reality. But, then, most of the affairs start like that. In love one has to renounce his self. Lovely poem.
    Watch beauty an' sacrifice,
    Your self,

    I liked the poem started because at the end it is different.
    I liked the line says Then my eyes smile
    the title and the way the poem express being in love was amazing
    because I was expecting that you will talk about love right a way but you weren't
    you said your last line that you are in love.

    i think those pretty things are drones of a foreign government, or sent by your wife! and the lights in your eyes are laser beams peeping into your brain to pick it clean. (i mean obtain all of your knowledge, oh wise one!)

    be careful (of) what you fall in love with!

    nice! bri : ) great rhyming! to MyPoemList.

    do you care to have it in December's showcase? it would fit nicely into Section B.
