Love Poems of February #6 of 14

February 13, 2013

Here’s the 6th of 14 new poems that have something to do with love that I plan to write during February.

Call it NaLoPoMo National Love Poem Month.

Prompt Idea:  Describe a love feeling or meaning. Enjoy.

Several poets may be participating in writing a poem a day or every other day in February. Join us and write some poems. Post a link to your love poems here at this Facebook page: Randomly Accessed Poetics which is a William James Lindberg project.

Living Love Poems
By Christopher J. Jarmick

The love poems that we live
mean more than any written.
Though we try to explain
It misses authenticity.

It’s here between the words.
You can hear it breathing softly
in the quiet,
in the warmth,
between the beating hearts.

There is sorrow, there is pain
there is laughter, there is boredom
there is faith, when it doesn’t
make any sense.

There is time, there is memory
There are tears, there is sex
There is hope that pulls you through
when burdens weigh you down

The love poems that we live
mean more than any written.
Though we mean to share
some feelings with you,
it never really works.
