Being In Love

Being in love is when
Veils of mist vaporize
And swollen buds appear
To brighten jaded eyes.
When they open up
The heart defibrillates;
Then the rush of passion surges
And intoxicates.
Being in love is when
Dreams of autumn whisper low;
And the love fires burn
In the frost of winter's snow.
But the leaves spin and turn
When sorrow's pain of losing
Feels such exquisite pain;
And things beyond one's choosing
See love go again.

Poigant and beautifully written. The emotions of being in love are very well penned and very moving. The ending is sad and I can feel your pain as I read this. You are the best poet on this site. Thank you for sharing!

To be in love and then to have to watch it go is a sad thing. Lovely poem. Trying to read a few as I have not been on the soup a lot lately. Took a break and have been more on facebook. Need to get back to writing but seem to be in a writing slump or maybe just my mood. Snow just does not want to leave this year. love phyl

You write with such a knowing and a way of expressing into words that which cannot be expressed easily. A beautiful poem Lizzie. I loved it! Mahalo

Your poems have an intoxicatingly soothing effect every time I read them, I am glad I didn't miss this one. How are you my dear friend? I know I have not been active on soup lately, have been a little too busy with life. Will drop by more often now, cant afford to miss on your GREAT works. Take care, Elize.

Exquisite words of love Elizabeth ! Well written poem. I purposely left squirrel out of the poem to have the reader think about what it is about. Anne
