What We Shared

Take my hand and help me climb, wedge my tumble,
Let me lean on thee, halt my heart throb, humble
Me with thy warmth. Once there was a guy who
Knew me and identified  with me, my heart
Would skip at the sight of him. "I love you"
He had said to me. His lovely smile
Thought me gentleness. His caress made my 
Heart dream of an eternal bond. And it
came to pass that he found me for a bride
But he passed away with the enraged wind  
Of life and my heart had since endured this 
Coup. None have been like my John, no; Their brain 
Registers no truth. Love is not money,
No, nor is it honey. Love is all so
Deeper than beauty or form. Oh! It's what 
My John and I shared. Beauty shall always
Urge body attraction, attitude shall
Birth true interest and commitment shall 
Birth care. Money maintains love, not money
Brings love, my teacher had once said to me
Rich or Poor, man has a right to be loved.
They say everything  that goes around
Must come around. Let the coin turn it's back
And bring me love with treasured moments or 
Let tide and time reverse, that I might meet
My John, and enjoy what time had denied us.



It is completely fiction.

    I really like the style of this, sort of stream-of-consciousness in a way that flows very nicely. Very nice work, I wouldn't have known it was fictional if you hadn't said so!

    oh, geeez, you had me thinking you lost this awesome man. Ok, now since this was fiction. tell me. Are you a guy or girl? I honestly can't tell from your name and this made me think you were a woman but before this, I thought man! I am so confused hahaha.

    Your poem reveals those beautiful feelings which are true and are the feelings of our soul not heart alone.” Love is not money, No, nor is it honey. Love is all so Deeper than beauty or form” Such a wonderful love comes between two hearts when the elements of you and me ends and the two really become one in true sense. It was a pleasure reading your beautiful poetry. If it is based on a true story your love would not go in vain. With best wishes…Ravindra... Ingibo Benson

    This is such a moving tale of a beautiful love that never got to live long enough. Who knows why things like this have to happen but perhaps we learn from it. Great write my friend. God Bless, JB
