What can make an average person turn poet? Yes, even the most cynical, unromantic people will find themselves yielding under the influence of love. We say things and do things that we once labeled cheesy. We even enjoy it! This is the spell love casts. Flowers, candlelight dinners, stuff of movies become reality. Though we may have a tendency to suppress what we feel, in the end it is impossible because, sooner or later, the heart always does what it wants to. Emotions, some new and some nearly forgotten, begin to surface after having germinated, grown and spread their roots in us. It feels surreal at times, but we must recognize that, although not perfect, it is real, beautiful love.
Little Bo Peep had lost her sheep
and so couldn’t meet me for dinner.
I dated Snow White, but try as I might,
nothing I did worked to win her.
Gretel, sweet petal, she munched on my house,
it made her so terribly sick.
I think she’d have made quite a wonderful spouse.
She choked on a fragment of brick!
Then Cinderella ran off with some fella,
I haven’t heard word of her since.
The ugliest sister said if I would kiss her,
she’d give me the name of the Prince.
I tried to hook up with Rapunzel
It’s obvious she didn’t care.
It’s simply no use, she just made the excuse,
every night, she was washing her hair.
I thought I was doomed to be lonely,
condemned to be always alone;
my love life a tale of “if onlys”
it chilled me right down to the bone.
But Goldilocks came to my rescue.
I’ll ask her to wed me, tonight.
She’ll not break my heart like the rest do.
She’s beautiful, perfect, “just right!”
Have you ever heard the quote ''I was blind- but now I can see''? Well...This saying is what best describes my inspiration for this poem! Before I met my husband I had been engaged twice, was sexually and physically abused and suffered depression! And for all of this I am grateful. Why? you ask, well...Because...I have come to realize- my past has made me who I am today and is also what brought my husband & I together! I wrote this poem for my husband on our first date"
You are my first thought of every morning
and my last of every night,
You are the safety in my darkness
and the brightness in my light,
Your face is sheer perfection
your kisses a delight,
Your looks make me want you more
you are just a perfect sight,
I only hope you love me
as much as I love you,
''Cause you and I we're meant to be
as One instead of Two!
I was a senior in high school when I met her. We started as friends and because of my lack of courage we never became anything more. I look back and see how big of a mistake it was to not just tell her, the worst part being that I knew she liked me as well. To this day I still can't replace the feelings I had/have for her, so I've been waiting for 3 years for a second chance. I think I've finally been given that chance at the age of 21, and I hope my dream of having her comes true
I wish I may
I hope I might,
my wish tonight.
I cannot wake
until I see,
what my soul
would like for me.
I need someone
more than they know,
for with them
my heart can glow.
I wish I may
I hope I might,
get my wish...
of you tonight.
