Why Can I Not Love You - Poem by Rose Marie Juan Austin

Ah, why can I not love you?
My love only submits to your love
Like the tide
That could not be stopped
It pushed right into the heart.

Like the streams in spring time
Where water rushed through
As the blood flows into the heart
It creates a melodious song
Only for you.

Like the breeze
That kisses you warmly
And so suddenly
Envelops the heart with so much glee
All because of you.

Ah, why can I not love you?
My heart only beats for you, only for you
You are like the air
Even if I close my eyes
I still feel you
Sweep along my skin
Fill my heart with desire
And I know
I know, my love
That I am alive.

    The answer to the question in the title lies in this beautiful poem, an impetuous love poem, the last line includes that you are alive, he is like the air, makes your heart beating and you feel that you are alive! (Report)Reply

    Why can't I love you, because your heart is beating constantly, for your only love, as you have described best, with so many impetuous metaphors, starting with the tide, ending... again in your heart, beating constantly for him, your love! WOW! Amazing creation from the honesty within, your beating heart. ToMyPoemList, dear great poet and I can't stop reading this touching poem of your heart's render. (Report)Reply

    Nice poem Rose, but surely you are free to love someone though the person not feel the same. Its not bad i think. Maybe you should write another sequel, Why can you not love me? then it will be another way of looking from two sides. (Report)Reply
