Between the Lines of Poetry Soup

Between the lines of Poetry Soup
Lies partly hidden the real scoop

Poets with emotion’s overflow
Spillage of which, they do not know

Leaks between lines of what they write
Discerning souls, bring them to light

Fellow poets with the same disease
Wanting to love, wanting to please

Can read between the lines so fair
And see love affairs recorded there

And secrets longings all scream out
Though unstated, there is no doubt

Which poet is in love with whom
Which affair is destined to bloom

Clear to read Love’s Richter scale
The in between codes, never fail 

Poems present and poems past
Love or friendship, which will last?

Terms of endearment, every one
Is a love song that can not be sung

Between the lines, you can’t deny
Is where love affairs are flying high

For we are poets one and all
Programmed, it seems, in love to fall…

With people whose words do ignite
Who caress the soul with sheer delight

Chorus: 

Between the lines
Between the lines
The love is there
Between the lines

The long standing and hidden pain
The hints of a love gone insane

Between the lines
Between the lines
YOUR love is there
Between the lines.

Eileen Manassian  Ghali

    I fell in love with a poet on a different site before I'd even met the man. That relationship lasted for a couple of years and it was magical. Entertaining write, Eileen. :)

    Oh Richard...you will be a tease, won't you! Well, it's a long story. I'll share when you share your story about your background. It's only fair.

    Why thank you, Caleb. :) I think poets are just good at bantering...but think about it....people throwing words around, the very things that poets thrive on!!! A lethal combination that's bound to explode sometime! ;)

    ... between the lines there is the wonderful works of Eileen Ghali :) Yes... it's impossible hide here isn't? When the whole point of writing is to share a bit of yourself. The act of hiding would be to NOT write.

    Yes...I had to tease. Of course. Poets are known for baring their souls. We are all emotional exhibitionists. I want to write a poem on that one..... Thanks for visiting, Timothy! :)
