When Love Was Fair

When Love Was Fair

As poets, we tend to wear our hearts upon our sleeves, and that, in particular, is me, unabashedly. In going over my ample stock of poetic works I can see exactly where I was at the time, in love, out of love, struggling, contented and every possible mood and circumstance that is my life. I guess that its true, the deeper the emotions the more poetic we become, and whether its good or not is another matter entirely. This poem was the result of a romantic mood and I thought I’d share it. Enjoy…

Such sweet surprise,
what you in mind derive
from my subtle glance,
my raw romance,
this feeling I cannot hide
in morns warm grace;
and you in tune, with shards
bathing our waking souls
to afferent sleepy pursuits,
greeting day with feigned forays
and into love’s embrace.

Glory be these days,
where the sun did choose
to bless this room with gold,
and warm bodies writhed
in blankets warm from cold,
until that sigh of release,
sent that room to slumber’s nest,
and I attest that beauty lay beside me,
on these days of morning glory,
where life stood still
and bones awaken in fervent throws,
to rhythms marked in joy.

Such memories when love was sweet,
like honey to the tongue,
and back then nobody won,
just blissfully there and happy,
when the time was of no consequence,
and Sunday lasted a week,
and work just held love at bay,
desperate to return and stay by your side,
when love rang out like chapel bells,
and loneliness cried without you,
when I could not breathe,
without the touch of your hand.

    I believe many of us had sweet moments of bliss like these you pen. How sweet it was, nectar from the gods when two hearts beat as one and time stands still for LOVE and no one. I remember them well. Thanks for the memories Tony Cheers
