Premium Member A Legendary Love

A legendary tale of love I know
about two very brilliant people who
were soul mates living centuries ago.
They shared much hardship but their love stayed true.
Truth seeker Heloise sought Abelard.
Great teacher of philosophy was he.
But people’s thinking in that time was...Read More

Shakespeare's Name Blame Game
A Capulet named Juliette
Exclaimed to her ardent beau,
"You're not to blame Montagu's your name.
By its nature, a rose's aroma is sweet,
Though in nomenclature it be not so neat,
But, wherefore art thou Romeo?
Why can't you be John, or Frank, or Ben,
Gregory,...Read More

The Poets Duel

I consider myself the poet
Of historic love affairs
Not the Romeo and Juliette’s we all know
The ones mirrored in lesser history of lore
Like Heloise and Abelard
I was the king of this poetic style

Then came along the competition
He thought somehow...Read More

From the skies
Clouds fall upon my dreams
I am up high, away from it all
I am far, but my tears still fall
I stand up and shout to Paris ( Pareee)
You left me, you left me here to fend alone

Premium Member Heloise on Abelard
These barren walls
Keep me chaste
Vows of silence
Diminish nothing of wanton passions of the past
Days in silence, looking upwards to God
Thoughts linger, to where true love lies

I toil in Gods works
Knees now as rocks
All of Gods floors, so clean
Daily rituals, in...Read More

Premium Member Eternally Together

Fate brought them together, at the blush of her youth 
A devout, gifted rosebud, of wit, charm,  and intelligence
The theologian charmed her, and gave her bold proof
of a love and a challenge, defying her innocence...
But, scandal entwined them, by...Read More

in our doom the sorrow yet to come shall be no less 
than the love we two have already known"

Fulbert's Revenge
You have been influential company
since you came from your town in Brittany.
You possess prowess in philosophy,
and are next to none in theology.
Your presence is a formidable stance
as you are among the scholars of France.

However, your acts defy decency
as you have...Read More

Premium Member She Lived Without
As though she were a moon in sky of nights unstarred;
as though a silent, untouched plain was Heloise
when parted from the one who'd been her rain and breeze.
She lived her life, but lived without her Abelard.

(To anyone interested, this is...Read More

Challenge... Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind Tribute.
Ice covered ponds and snow covered beaches
Lost memories of Clemintine,
Rush back to me at once
As I listen to this tape...
Rewind, and listen again
It seems that she forgot me,
And I forgot her too
Like three boxes of puzzle pieces,
scattered out before me

Confusion...Read More
