Eccentricity In Love

With respect there’s nothing to omit
saying I love you within these walls,
everything I write weaves in orbit
whilst time in haste reminds me and calls.
To you with eyes so bright hopes convey
confident from my heart words will pour,
oh gypsy in rags my poem will say
it’s not what I see that’s only the door.
Your pins and needles adorn your face
your hair the colour of liquid grass,
your universe of hard knocks your grace
places you for me top of the class.
If only to live this life again
staple us together lord, amen.

Beautiful. I love the lines "your universe of hard knocks your grace" and "gypsy in rags" so descriptive. True love embraces the oddities in life. Thank you for reading so many of my poems and commenting with such encouragement.

Very interesting descriptions with pins and needles and hair of liquid grass. The title Eccentricity well portrays the poem, Harry. It makes me want to know of whom you are writing. This gypsy in rags!! Who might this be?

Hello Harry, I think this exhibits a richness of description, and I can feel a searching element, there is ' honesty' in these lines and for me that above all gives it fluidity and a captivating appeal..'

Interesting contest entry..Sad to find the right person and that person already with someone else or at the end of life giving only a few years to enjoy each other's company..Thanks for your visit to my page..Sara

Unique, creative, beautiful and romantic. The eccentricities and quirks are what make it fun to love someone.

It's not what is on the outside that counts, but sometimes, it is.... Life would be so boring if we spent it with someone who was "normal", and whom we didn't truly love.... I really liked this uniquely romantic poem. A beautiful write, Harry!
