The Haunting Heist - Poem by Sandra Osborne

Love once more
But not as two,
Love me us,
Love me you.

There and back
Again once more,
Lost my mind
In Merlin’s lore.

Floating down
Trying to settle,
Falling hard,
Silently medalled.

Then again,
I love you forever,
You are my friend,
My timeless endeavor.

Can't break us apart,
No separations,
Can't see the lines,
No perforations.

Just us, just one.
Will forever be,
My blinded eyes
Will forever see.

A quiet tempest,
A Rolling sea.
Cascading Cannon,
A stinging bee.

And quiet still,
Caress, support,
You are my soul,
Unbreakable fort.

Now peace and quiet,
Without the fire,
An electric spark,
Without the wire.

As smoldering smiles
Paint paradise,
A lasting longing,
The haunting heist.

    Alan, I added:

    A quiet tempest,
    A Rolling sea.
    Cascading Cannon,
    A stinging bee.

    What do you think? ? And thanks so much for the advice. :)

    You woman love love, i supose that makes us different, men love logic
    you speak of love quite well, your poem is orderly it has a certain flow
    BUT IT NEEDS, a small explosion in the middle to bring it to life
    I cant tell you how to do that, it comes with time, you will have to be patient

    Warm regards AJS
