Lovebeat

Our love has become such a delicate breath in shadowed beauty
and a thin scratch along the lips of still longing, 
seeming to be just a rumor in the rage
of two reckless rebels
sick of love's stage,
yet we yearn
to wet the next page
to ink the next...I need you...
to bless with a kiss
the next chapter,
hating the want
though melting in the satisfaction
of poetic perfection, 
oh how cute and cruel
we can be to eachother, 
Love has no idea
on how to judge us,
and our heartbeats
keep asking for more -

J.A.B.

Quite an original take on romance, more so like reality, than most love poetry possesses.

Love is contradictory in all that it does manytimes..its a conflict of emotion and passion,against how it is stated and written in books...Love is so much alive in your vocabulary.I love.the way.you love..Justin.

Yes my Lady Hawk, love will seek to save itself at all costs...love can reveal a beastly fury, ingenius passion and the healing power of heaven itself. Love flourishes within my poetry because my heart knows the heat of it's fire Charma...J.A.B.

Love can be an excercise in opposites. You capture the joy and conflict so well.

Yes, indeed Richard, and love can also be an exercise in insanity, and a triumph of the heart's faith in creation...J.A.B.

Beautiful, Justin. Your romantic writes have always been fascinating..."Hating the want though melting in the satisfaction" This resonated with me. Great write.

To be sick of love and yet still ask for more! Awesome lines Justin..I really liked, "a delicate breath in shadowed beauty", and "a thin scratch along the lips of still longing"..I can feel the love and yearning of this passionate poem. You know how to dispel the perfect amount of love, thought, rhythm, and magic in your works - that's why I keep coming back. Can't miss a thing! Always, Laura

In those moments and realizations of love's frustrations and exhaustion, inbetween the temperatures of want and need we understand the truth of love. We all need perfect love Laura...J.A.B.

There is an elegance of passion within the first line that couples well with the sweet sensitivity of your heart Linda. This love reminds just how delicate the core of a heart can be once the disciplined defenses are bypassed and it's beautiful inner chambers are reached...J.A.B.
