Heart and Emotions #OctPoWriMo2018 #8

Tortured emotions
Tortured heart
Heart smitten
Heart ensnared
Ensnared by love
Ensnared by hope
Hope that grows
Hope that swells
Swells to fill the earth
Swells to fill the soul
Soul that warms
Soul that is free
Free to rejoice
Free to sing
Sing in praise
Sing in wonder
Wonder and delight
Wonder and despair
Despair- I’m not enough
Despair – I will fail
Fail in caring
Fail in loving enough
Enough doubt
Enough worry
Worry no more
Worry be gone
Gone is loneliness
Gone into retreat
Retreat from silence
Retreat no more
More to dance
More to release
Release the pain
Release the joy
Joy to explore
Joy to share
Share the fears
Share the tears
Tears of laughter
Tears of happiness
Happiness that endures
Happiness that grows
Grows old together
Grows closer
Closer in love
Closer emotions
Emotions growing
Emotions exploring

Exploring
Growing

(Blitz poem)

Love Is…           #OctPoWriMo2018 #9

Love is incandescent
Our hearts intertwine
Victorious emotion
Evolves and grows

Dancing On Air #OctPoWriMo2018 #10

Dancing on air, they floated
With hearts entwined, devoted

Two voices raised as one, singing
As love grows and swells- joy bringing

Through trials, tribulations and all
True love won’t falter, fail or fall

(Con-Verse poem)

 

Love can conquer all #OctPoWriMo2018 #11

 

We all have our flaws
We all will make mistakes
But love can conquer all!

My idol may have feet of clay
My eyes blinkered to other’s faults
We all have our flaws

No one is totally perfect
And I can’t cast the first stone
We all will make mistakes

Two flawed hearts and minds
What challenges may come we face
But love can conquer all

 

(Cascade poem)

 

Tortured           #OctPoWriMo2018 #12

My heart – ripped apart
Grief chokes. Numb, tears are flowing
Like acid burning

 

(Senryu)
