Best John Loving Iii Poems

+ Fav Poet

the visit

my love came to me
with a song
i played it over and over
all day long
and love reminded me 
of memories
memories that have 
traveled through 
my heart, my mind and soul
showing me things
my eye's can no longer behold
my ears can no longer hear
or my hands grasp
or my tommorows hope for
she showed me love i had 
and wished i had
yes indeed i was very glad
my memories today 
the best i ever had

thoughts of her
dived in and out of me
changing me like channels
playing me like keys
all my deep emotions
each one as she pleased
my joy, my tears
she vanquished my fears
we spoke and said what we came
to say
that our love
will live forever and a day
i was amazed at how God
let her speak 
in his secret and special way
that He and i speak
i know you don't believe
you have to have faith
when i need God the most
He shows me 
a little of His face


(this is a true story)

    Enjoyed this one John...It left me wondering though...Is this a new person that you have met or is it about memories of the past?...My poem "Loves Flame Drenched" is about differences in the sexes or personalities..Like a woman who enjoys a romantic movie which is a stress relief and a soft go between work, home, children, problems, etc. to lead to romance..Then the man who wants to watch a Western, murder mystery, boxing, wrestling as a stress relief, go between work and play...Sara

    I can relate to this on some level...unearthly visitations...in a way it taps into my poem 'double phantasy', similar subject matter but different circumstances..."changing me like channels/playing me like keys" those are two great lines my sweet...
