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.

Topic(s) of this poem: love


Poet's Notes about The Poem

    I will be back sometime after two,
    I want to pray the names of evil too
    like do all the other people born of fools.
    The pain of growth that prickle sore as pins or sores of due.
    Someone said to me that love is true.
    That someone talking I think was you,
    So every morning I wake and open this book through the pages to look at you
    Akhtar Jawad, I love this poem too

    Lovely poem. I just wondered about the line that says, (put book in the shelf...) ?
    Were you in love with the pretty girls in the book?
