Don’t insult me with mediocrity When it comes to love I’m a woman of passion Of intensity Trilling “I'll set you on fire” Mentality Not a “Sure, why not?” Neutrality Don’t insult me with mediocrity When it comes to love. Don’t appease me When it comes to love I’m a woman of dignity Of sincerity Honest “I can see through you!” Ability Not an “I’m so touched” Complacency Don’t appease me When it comes to love Don’t quiet me When it comes to love I’m a woman of expression Of confession Not a “Everything’s fine” Morality But a “You consume me!” Totality Don’t quiet me When it comes to love. Don’t fool me When it comes to love I’m a woman of discernment Of understanding Not a “I’ll share you” Congeniality But a “You're all mine!” Fatality Don’t fool me When it comes to love. When it comes to love... Your my possession My cognition My "You're the man of my dreams" Confession My "You color my world." Expression My "You make me melt." Obsession When it comes to love That's what you are to me. Jade Celeste This is a repost of a poem I posted in March of 2013. You can find it if you search for it in the search engine of the site. The interesting thing is....going along with my previous poems, someone once read a poem of mine that was written in this style and posted a comment saying that I write like someone else here on the Soup, as though I were emulating him or trying to impress him. Well, here is a poem from before a time I even knew that person. Well, well...what do you know. It's signature me.

Thanks, Edith. Sorry for being late in my response. I take pride in my passion and sensuality, despite the fact that it is often not understood or appreciated. I will not change who I am for someone else's understand or vision. Thank you for your vote of confidence. You know I value your words. Hugs

:) Yes, David. I write from my heart and soul. This is an older piece of mine. I just had to repost it to show that my writing hasn't all of a sudden morphed. True...perhaps I'm developing it more. Thanks for your care, support, and love. Much much appreciated. Sending hugs from LO.

A wonderful poem of passion and love, Eileen! I can't imagine someone being so brazen with such a rude accusation. You, my dear, have nothing to prove!!

Rhonda, sorry I'm late with this response. Thank you for your kindness. Of course, the person didn't accuse but hinted....It's all the same in my book. Even if I were trying to impress someone...surely that is my own business. Thank you for the visit. Hugs

It is either all out or get out...I hear you Eileen....my daughter has just dealt with the same situation and I can relate. You definitely have your own original flair that is unmistaken. They were probably paying you a compliment as how could they do anything but? Sweet dreams...Connie

Connie, thank you for your post. I'm sorry I'm so late in getting back to you. It's been a tough couple of days. I highly doubt they were paying a compliment. There are others who write in this style, but I was not compare to any of them. It's alright. We need to deal with such things. I appreciate your comment and love. Blessings.

My sweet enchantress there is no one that I know who paints with such passion on Soup, You are were and will be always unique and original. Your poem You hush the stars was so brilliant. I have admired you skill since the first poem of yours i read and continue with each new one. Any time you want to do a write with me again I would be honoured, Your heart is true and you are loved here on soup by many. Stay safe you are the brightest light in my grey world! love Shane xxx

Shane, sorry I'm so late with my response to your post. Thank you for your lovely post and friendship. Our world turns grey in turns, it seems. Friends are there to offer support and light. That's what friends are for. Thank you for your kindness to me. I appreciate it. We will collab again....sometime in the near future, for sure. Hugs

I understand your heart and sentiments, but this is beyond solving. Better this way. If someone thinks ill of you....no matter what...there is no point, Charmaine. I tried to be gracious....while still defending myself. But....I'm not looking for reconciliation. I fight to restore relationships with those whom I trust and whom I know have not brought pain to others. There is no point here. Thanks for your lovely thoughts. Hugs

Let people say what they want Eileen..And if you really ever write a beautifup poem to impress someone,that someone should be thankful,cuz its not everyday that some one write such beauty for a friend,on the otherhand if its not about him.He should believe that too.Some people like to complicate life Eileen.Whatever I wish that if anyone hurt you unintentionally or intentionally,He finds it in his heart to contact you and you and him start over like family.Usually the person we fight most with
