The Greatest Poem

Posted on February 13, 2010. Filed under: Poetry | Tags: , , , , , , , |

Happy Valentines! x

I put pen to paper but words escape me.
My thoughts and emotions battle for priority.
My mind drifts as scenes play; I laugh, cry and frown as they do. 
Yet my words refuse to impress upon the paper that lies beneath me.

I’m in awe of you. You should know.
Your words of wisdom have wise men in tantrums.
Your condition of unconditional love is what I know,
In all its unconditional ways.

I have writers’ block of the sweetest kind.
You’re here in my mind;
Here in my heart.
So why can’t I translate this?

I value you. You should know.
My love – you hold its power.
Your soft-spoken tones show their harsh meanings.
You speak the truth and deliver like a dream.
You deserve that throne;
You deserve that pedestal that I put you on.

I put pen to paper but words escape me.

I guess, because it has already been written…

You are the greatest poem!!!

You took me on such a nice ride – That writers block seems like one that you dont rush to get rid of. real nice!

Thank you hun.

Can’t rush a good thing!


You normally go speechless when the love is real

Even silence has its own beauty, and seeing it on paper is a rare one indeed. This one reminded me of bible’s explanation of humility, loving yourself and accepting the other is greater than you. Life would be unique if we cud see every being as a moving poem, as an expression, as art itself. Loving your work patricia;-)

You express the meaning of and behind my poem so beautifully. I am so touched. Thank you!

I truly do see what you mean by the bible’s explanation of humility in loving another. And putting someone else first and giving them your first-fruits so to speak, is an amazing thing.


Happy Wednesday!
