Sold My Heart – Poetry Remix No. 5

“You took my love, with the greatest of skill and art. As the band played, the gentle music sold my heart.”

The breeze was cool, the night just became dark.
The lights were dim, you laughed at my remark.
The fire burned deep deep inside our hearts.
As we sat there, I told you that we’d never part.
As the band played, the gentle music sold my heart.

Your skin was tanned, glowing by the fire.
While in your hand, I hung by a wire.
And as you spoke, feelings we acquired.
You took my love, with the greatest of skill and art.
As the band played, the gentle music sold my heart.

I Close My Eyes | Short Poem No. 46

“I close my eyes and I hold your hand in mine. Endlessly floating together through time.”

The waves crashing against the darkened stone.

The salty air dries the dew of the night.

The creatures scramble, fending for their own.

Slender palms stretch their hands towards the light.

But then, you and I drift in the picture.

Disregarding all but our affection.

So careless, so enjoying our fixture.

So careless, enjoying imperfection.

Let’s drift away, together, me and you.

Laughs and flirty glares, our hide-a-way cove

Between the azure sky and ocean blue.

There’s the warmth of the sun, and of our love.

I close my eyes and I hold your hand in mine.

Endlessly floating together through time.

Pregnancy Announcement | Short Poem No. 45

The beauty of a pregnancy announcement. . .

This poem is a silhouette of love.

Two embraced in a moment, lost and free.

He gives a kiss as she looks from above.

Because now there’s two, but soon will be three.

Worries of struggle, money, parenting,

are gone now in this beautiful moment.

The mother thinks of a song she can sing,

a lullaby to the life that God’s lent.

Soon, there’ll be a cradle, and newborn cries.

as into this place, with worries it’s own,

an infant’s pushed to their new world to rise –

in the arms of parents making a home.

And devotion will keep them together.

Only a true love can make things better.

Sand on the Beach | Poetry Remix No. 4

Feeling hot sand on the beach.

Ocean breeze runs through my hair.

Your hand settled between mine.

Worries – we forgot to care.

Can moments stretch into eternity

when you stop to look into someone’s eye?

Time always moves on – Sand sifting through hands.

Time always moves on – Moments always die.

Look back and dream of moments,

wishing again for that day.

But, as you dream of the past,

today slowly drifts away.

Love Notes | Poetry Remix No. 3

“Love Notes:” They come in many forms.

There’s sounds of a violin, I walk down the street.

I’m hearing sweet music play, the drum is my feet.

My mind is the bow that slides up and down the strings.

This happens when I think of the warmth that you bring.

I’m just a simple boy leading a symphony

when, in my ear, I hear your voice calling to me.

But, the music never stops,

finally have each other.

And the music never stops

plays as I’m with my lover.

Your voice is the melody,

the winds makes a harmony.

Making rhythms as I walk,

symphony of you and me.

Why Write Poetry? | Top 3 Reasons

Why Write Poetry?

Many of you fellow bloggers and readers out there are wondering, “Why write poetry?” Well, I’ve been writing poetry for a few years now and I’m going to give you the top three reasons that I do: Writing has therapeutic benefits, mental benefits, and, on a blogging website, helps you to connect with other writers

Writing Poetry is Therapeutic.

The first reason that I write poetry is that it’s therapeutic; it’s a release of emotions. Sometimes you don’t know how much you have built up on the inside until you start writing. But, be careful: Once you start letting it out, it can be overwhelming.

Writing Poetry is a Mental Exercise

Writing poetry also forces you to exercise your mind. You have to think and you have to practice your writing and grammar skills. It also helps you to challenge yourself to become better at something.

Writing Poetry on a Blogging Website Connects You with Other Poets

I love being able to connect with other writers on WordPress. I’m able to learn from other writers, relate with them, and also get new ideas. In addition, we’re able to give each other constructive feedback and encouragement to keep writing.

In Conclusion of Why Write Poetry. . .

If you haven’t starting writing poetry yet, I hope you give it a try. If you already do write poetry, I hope this gives you encouragement to keep writing and to broaden your horizons. I hope you all gain the therapeutic benefits, mental benefits, and connections to others through writing poetry.
