    I mean to say this: See how Sam beautifully marries the divine with the human: 'only the one who has experieced human love can authoritatively speak of a divine love', he seems to be saying.

    See how Sam beautifully marries the divine with the human: 'only those who have truly loved' could possibly experience and live the love of God.

    This poem seem to attempt the querry: why do people in love feel pain?

    Now you've posted more poems here, Samuel - just to affirm what I said before: you have a beautiful honest direct writing, of course you should comment on your own life, and don't be put off by any lack of 'rating' or comment... you're 'somebody' already, not 'someday'!

    It is a pity that my earlier comment had to be written twice. There was a spelling error in the first; I couldn't live with the thought of having published an error for the world to see without it's being corrected - don't call me finicky!

    i think one may comment on himself - it is allowed in african tradition. if you read my poem 'in a hurry' you can see how i felt about my mother's death; but i have long come to appreciate the fact that life is not all about death. actually life is all about life!

    A big thankyou, Samuel, and I agree - you have a beautiful talent for telling the truth, simple and direct.
    You may have noticed that this site has a 62% audience of Americans, as many fiercely anti-church as pro-church - so don't be surprised if you get some sharp comments - or no comments at all! But I look forward as you do, to reading your 'tomorrow' poems.
    Best wishes. On this site, you can never be an orphan...

    Samuel is one of the most talented writers I have read on this site. He has such a wonderful way of putting things down. It is such a pleasure to read his poems.

Best Poem of samuel nze

A Kiss May Mean Anything

One must not take love wrongly
A kiss may mean anything
Emotion gets physical in different ways
If planted on the head
Think of me always
Is a likely import for a kiss
Planted on the cheeks it calls
For fraternity even in strain
On the back of the hand
What other meaning than adoration
For the one beloved
Or on the feet unreserved worship indeed
It is only when a man
Kisses his wife full on the lips
That romance is exclusively expressed
They lock in passionate embrace
Tumbling to the floor
In throes of devouring passion
Making bashful ...

Read the full of A Kiss May Mean Anything

Is It Love?

Is it love between us
When you fear me?
You cast suspicious eyes
This way and that,
You are not at home when
You sit with me;
You quake with insecurity
In my company.
Is it love then?
