Love Bite – A poem written for Kira’s Sunday Scribbles

20190209_202935.jpg

The Word of the Day today is FREE and I remembered this poem I wrote a couple of years ago, inspired by this beautiful picture by Kira.

I was betrayed;

You never stayed

On an altar of false dreams

I sacrificed myself, it seems.

Our connection died

Our love cast aside.

Your intimate touch

That I loved so much,

Was a passing passion

A fleeting fashion,

Smitten

Now bitten,

Yearning,

Burning,

In a heap.

Love may be free,

but it’s never cheap.

A Valentines Day Poem – Passion Fashion.

I have often said that I don’t DO Valentine’s day, It is just a commercial load of tripe, but I have succumbed to the pressure and have written a love poem. I suppose there must be something in the air (not just the air freshener).

 

Passion Fashion

It seems passion is in fashion

For today at least,

But I prefer something

Longer lasting than

This particular Saints day feast.

Something durable,

Intimate, Uncurable,

And totally insurable.

A love that means I’m bitten,

By a life-long love bug,

A totally smitten kitten,

Just waiting for its hug.

So, for me, today is just the same

As all the ones that come and go,

They may not have the fancy name,

Of Valentines, but I hope you know,

That, to me love is not just a game,

A flighty ebb and flow,

But seriously, deliriously

I will always love you so.

Initially I was just going to dip my toe into the water, just to check the temperature, but instead, I jumped in.

Writing has always been a passion of mine, but I never really shared much of what I wrote with anyone else. I have now found that Blogging has also become a passion, thanks to the support and encouragement I have received for you.

Thank you to everyone. I was also a bit wary of social media, that it was full of trolls lacking any vestige of empathy, just looking for an excuse to tear people down. Instead, here on WordPress, I have found a great bunch of people who are genuinely caring and supportive.

Thank you all very much.
