Can’t Write Love Poems Anymore

When reading poetry – and especially poetry that is inspired by the Poet loving someone we all can get a quick glimpse into their soul. It takes more courage than you know to wear your emotions on your sleeve for everyone to see. Sometimes when fate and destiny steps in that poetry of love and of life is taken away from the Poet, and they become lost in an abyss and momentarily lose the words.

“Can’t Write Love Poems Anymore”
There was a time when the words flowed easy and free,
Now the miles make it difficult when you are so far from me.

It would seem with pen in hand, I can’t write love poems anymore,
Without your light and inspiration that I have always adored.

The words of love seem to have left the day you took your flight,
Sadden and confused the words have escaped – there is nothing left to write.

Frustration with the words I struggle with seem to no longer have the rhyme,
Numerous times I have tried and my pen never moves – a forever uphill climb.

When you left the words and the “I love poems” took the flight with you,
Before, the words flowed simple and free – now there is nothing – not even a few.

Looking at the pictures you left behind and somehow it is not the same,
In my mind it is the distance and the forever miles is what is to blame.

It would seem with pen in hand, I can’t write love poems anymore,
Oh, how I miss the words and poems that I cannot write to you forevermore.

Minutes, days, and the hours have now passed so slowly since you went away,
All the words and rhyme suddenly disappeared and went astray.

The words and love poems that should be now – fall on silent ears,
That they are now gone forever and a day is one of my biggest fears.

It would seem with pen in hand, I can’t write love poems anymore,
Please, come back and bring my words of love – that is all I ask for.

    Without the inspiration of love, writing about it is hollow and pointless. Love poems come from a heart in love and that cannot change, if it is authentic. But love can transcend but one person and be in many forms, all of which can be expressed. Nicely penned Kurt, of the loss and stagnation when our love is far away. cheers!

      Thank you Tony for your understanding of the words I have written – sometimes it is a difficult task when your muse is far away –

    I know exactly how you feel – as writers we depend so much on inspiration and a muse is almost an absolute necessity – hope you find a solution !

    Love of nature when you are out in the wilderness always brings so many beautiful words to us. It is possible to write love poems even when the one we love is so far away. Hope you find the embers in your heart begin to glow again. Nice work, Kurt.
