Quantum Metaphysics of the Look in Your Eyes

Folder: 
Seven Bridges

I don't love you

for who you are.

I don't love you 

for who you aren't.

I don't love you

for what you have,

or what you can give.

I don't not love you

for the things you've done;

and at times,

I love you despite 

who you are

and what you do. 

 

I love you 

for all the reasons

that you think

that I shouldn't

fear that I can't,

and I believed that I wouldn't.

 

I love you

not for what you see,

but for what I know

when I look 

within you.

Your wisdom knows no bounds I

Your wisdom knows no bounds I have come to realise.

I come to visit it often, in hopes to refine my own.

Such a unique amiable presence I find in your writes.

So often, the ending is the pinnacle

as is here.

Beautiful, I feel obligated to thank you for sharing your inner experiences.


"The stars awaken a certain reverence, because though always present, they are inaccessible; but all natural objects make a kindred impression, when the mind is open to their influence." R.W.E.

Thank you, kind Sir!

What wisdom there may be has been dearly bought. ;-)

I love you because of who I

I love you because of who I aspire to become when I look into you heart and feel the depths of your soul,

I love you for the way we pull ourselves up through the eye of each tornado that comes to pass, and how every time I turn around,

It is you who is here beside me,

I love you for all the things you probably think I shouldn't...or wouldn't...or couldn't,

And I love you for all the tomorrows in my life that sprouted from the seeds of each day we shared,

I love you because from you I learned that I have no choice in this life,

But to love....

And if you should ever not be there, for some utter fluke of possibility, I will love you ...still, for whatever remains.

 

 

Oh BEAVIS...I THINK I'M FALLING IN LOVE WITH YOU!!!

(but it's probably just the poem.) Must be damn good! Lmao. 


...and he asked her, "do you write poetry? Because I feel as if I am the ink that flows from your quill."

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "

I think it's mutual, dear! I'm enamoured with your luscious poetry as well! ;-)

okay ebcause I love this so much I have to address the issues I have with its flow!

time for the C.I.A (Crazy Intrusive Ashely) RED MARKER OF DOOOOOMMM! 

 

the entire poemk have a flow, a rhythm of a sense, I don't love you blah, I don't love you blah, till line 7 where suddenly its two reasons after don't, either cut one or put I don't love you between the lines. okay line 8, I don't not love you, gah double negative also takes away from the eastablished patern in my brain and thus tongue when I read, screws your reader over and takes away from emotional impact. I would take not out and keep the same patern the sentance works. Change can't to couldn't again my body and heart are in a rhythm and then it is gone :( and shouldn't couldn't wouldn't were all made for each other ;) I would also remove the not for what you see line

or move it above the I love you part

because we are waiting to hear why you love her after that line and then another not why and its like WHAT THE BLEEEPPP! keep like thoughts with like thoughts, poems are eassays without format and packed with emotional punches ;)

 

now let me go into the love! "I love you for all the reasons that you that you think that I shouldn't, fear that I can't, and believe that i wouldn't" BEavis if you didn't just capture unconditional love in its purest state...well then I am not a women... 


Much Love

Ohhh! I love Rabbit's Red Pen! I'm too tired to edit it properly now, but I added some breaks, maybe for clarity? I'll look again when I have (make!) time! this was a personal poem that I was persuaded to post. Haste makes...ummm something, but I think a microwave is involved...

I see what you are saying and agree from a grammatical point, but I think it captures the  topsy turvy emotional landscape of why one feels how you feel, and the nefarious and sublime nature of those feelings, and why they endure. I know how you HATE double negatives (and how grammatically incorrect they are), but it just "feels" right in capturing the absurdity & complexity of the emotions and the moment. ;-)

Oh noes

did we just have our first fight poetical soul mate :P

it is your poem therefore it must have your words :) I will just hold it's double negatives against it in self bias fashion :)

 

Love ya tons

beavis i like the flow, rhythm, raw emotions, and blunt honesty. i like the complexity of what makes someone love someone verses what makes you not love someone. it's hard to explain and sometimes people are at war with their emotions of it...i love you, i love you not. what a tangled mess. well displayed.

Thanks poetic! ;-)

Yes. Because love just is...

Yes. Because love just is... there is no equal to it. ...no "worth". Once you see that, you are usually "in" love. And great part is...when you find yourself "in" love, without an "attachment" to any relationship, you see what the big "committed relationship" really takes in order for it to work. It isn't just all about  "feeling good". It takes working at to have those great feelings.

......Awesome Beavis. I like this one! Thanks for sharing.

I've found if I'm a bit confused but at peace with a smile for my Lady, that's love. I think if I understood it all, the love would be gone! ;-)

Poetic_Eyes's picture

Loved it.

Love it Sir Beavis. I don't know if it's fiction or who's this is written about, either way it's amazing, beautiful, and crafted perfectly.

Poems R Essays Emotion Packed

The emotion must be demonstrated, not simply repeated. I agree with the Wabbit, too much repetition, the motif grows stale from lack of variety and emotions passed on for the reader to feel. I love you, this way and that way but not like that (double negatives? - good catch Wab) I got the I'll take you inspite of your evil ways and will celebrtae your wonderful ways, but the poetics are absent. You write better than this. Don't mind me, I'm not all back into the pp social scene yet. Reality is a bitch and I had to do some bitch slappin' recently. It's editor syndrome, bad news again. Yes, it is your poem, just a bit airy. ~Allets~

I love you, Lady A! Sometimes, a poem just misses the mark or fails to connect, but we learn as much or more from reasons for the misses as the ones that work. Deeply indebted, my Dear Lady A! :-)
