Leaves have fallen around us throughout these many years
Mist has clouded our eyes with vapors of vast confusion...
No one told us then, how storms might come, how skies would gather tears
Or how the sun would often hide, and seem to disappear
Perhaps those years, might have done such harm, to have shattered our illusions
Instead, we lean into each other's arms, and will stay until conclusion...

So if all these words were bound up in one
Ahhh! There’s a life that’s second to none!
Although I lived before
Bliss was measured day by day.
Cheerful moments dulled in empty rooms
Devoid of a kindred spirit
Each day started the same, Free from all but me,
Graced by diminished
Hopes of ever finding "You".
Inside I cried,
Just me, alone.
Languished in shadows,
Mesmerizing lonely glows
Never meant to burn again,
Only to wait, only to wait.
Perhaps love will never come again
Quelled by fear of pain,
Reminded of fickle
Tempting liars lost like me,
Until one day she walked in -
Veronique, more beautiful than her name,
With a heart that sang, and with
X's and O's that I could hold.
Your breath was that soft
Zephyr that once more sparked a flame.

...and bow Cupid directs
ensuring fate guaranting hope
Idyllic joint knocking late
my nocturnal oddity
Persistence quick revives
skeptic thoughts, unable vestiges
within xeric yearlong zone
I'd like to come to you
But, our streets are red
And I do not have
But my white dress
Antwan you are the love of my life
You came into my life six years ago
I love you more now then I ever did
Each day that comes I fall in love with you all over again
You are the men of my dreams
You are the father of my son
Antwan you are the man that I am going to get married to
You make me feel so free and sexy
When you are near me I feel like I can be anything I wanna be
Antwan you are my best friend
when I am down you are all ways there for me when I need you
We had our ups and down but we are still together
The love I have for you is forever
I hope you feel the some way but I know you do
Let me love you the way you need to be loved
Antwan I need you and I want you
I want to lay next to every night and wake up next to you in the morning
Being with you is wonderful and amazing
When I am Kissing you it feels so right
When you hold me I feel so safe in your arms
You make me happy
Antwan you are like 1,000,000 scoops of vanilla ice cream I have to have more
God had sent you to me for a reason and the reason is that I was look for
someone like you.
God told me that your the one for me and that I need you to keep you in my life
I love you so much
Antwan Thank you for loving me the way you do.

Throughout the winter it's like I'm gone
Watching you from far beyond
Seeing you through the trees
Something sounds like honey bees
Watching you from far beyond
Wishing that I was not gone
Lovely roses round your head
Trees that shine green and red
Winters gone and I am back
I feel like such an insomniac
Here I am you are asleep
That's when I hear a beep
1 day 2 days 3 days by
It really makes me wanna cry
Summers gone and winters back
It's back to were it started at.
Amidst lone stars i write your name
Below the tide which stole your breath I seal my promise
Close to you soon come to be in unknown place and empty hour
Destiny betrayed our dreams,our hope and thoughts ,but not forever
To those I love I bid farewell,last heartbeat faints so this soul lives in my beloved
Not for the contest ,but thanks Alfred Vassallo for the inspiration
through your new contest-abc poem about love
Love raided the heart
And occupied my mind
There was no chance
But to surrender
For, the love army surrounded the gates
Ceasefire was restored
I began to forget the hard days
The army again planned an offence
Where I had no chance of defence
From then on:
I am in a state of alert
Where I cannot avert
The sweet pain of love
