I've read of love


I've read of love
That hopeless yearning
The primal urge to join another

Kissing their skin
Seizing the moment
Boundless steps of silken joy

Seeing the light
Swaying together
A pair of graceful dancers

Passionate fire
Love grows from this cell
This speck this egg of promise

So does love last?
As written in books
With you I will take that chance

  2. Take a chance egg. Enjoy all the brilliant moments of it.It does not have to last. That sort of attitude is like saying I must never leave the house in case I get run over by a passing car.

  3. I think taking the chance is the only way... it might be a painful road to walk... but how would you ever know?

  6. I echo Jae Rose's words. These words come from a knowing heart, one who understands that even if forever is not part of the equation, the experiences of now will stay with us for always.

  7. Love softens us, emboldens us, brings us pain and joy. Yes. It's worth a chance. Always.

  8. Great rewards come to those who take chances.

    I took a chance with your poem, and was rewarded with a delightful read!

  9. I think you should take the chance better than living with regrets...

  10. I do think love is worth taking a chance on. As Truedessa said, it is better than living regrets for not giving it a try.

  11. A beautiful proposition, and it is what we do...take a chance...have faith and trust. But really it is living in those moments of love that makes it last, or so I have noticed these many years.

  12. "With you I will take that chance." A wonderful conclusion. Funny, as I was reading, I kept remembering our high school principal teasing our class about the "googly-eyed, two-headed monsters" he saw driving past the school........kids, sitting close together, all aglow....LOL.

  16. Love is a slow seductive waltz for some, a brief quickstep for others. I took a chance...

  19. Ah - the quest for love, stirs the embers of youthful joy in all ages ... perhaps less ardent with time, but lovelier in its own way - for not only does love last: it becomes deeper.
