You Know I Love You

Winds may howl,
Wild animals growl,
The forest grows cold, 
For I am lonesome and old
As the sun peaks through the clouds, 
I hear your soft, young voice so loud!
And though you speak dead man's lines,
You speak them with majesty divine
As I am wrapped in  my woe,
I only want you to know...
...that roses die black and violets lose blue,
But I will never die
And you know I love you!

Dark, romantic, deep velvet touch of love, wow! Such a mysterious and stout love affair Laura. Your shamed the cliche with your signature gothic beauty, ingenius. You always have an amazing piercing yet warm embrace with your balance of morose and magical, you're just awesome, and this is a FAV.

I really like your style. This reads like a gothic love poem from the dark ages and I mean that as a compliment. Very cryptic and excellent imagination.

What Einstein was to astrophysics (especially time), LB is to metaphysics and poetry!

This is a lot of fun on different levels. The roses/violets thing. Now, there are also pairings in this poem that make me think you are describing natural forces of old or something divine which loves me but wants me to know of that which you spoke about time previously and what life really means. How about that! Here you are so young, and you have already described the meaning of life! A GREAT ACHIEVEMENT!!!!! This is truthfully the closest and best model I have ever seen! U B #1poet
