Come Write a song with me


"When Love is a Rhyme"

What is it in your heart of hearts
That call you each to say
That love is in the feeling
And rhyme is on its way

Dear Respected RoC & other Poets

I never ever had the courage oraudacity to call myself a Poet. But I do scribble & rant for the fun of it.
In my humble view Love is missing something or soneone after the person or thing has bad farewell.Also, Love is an empty , hollowness which is filled up only after the return or meeting.
Most loves have to be bid farewell. Better to have wet eyes than angry ones.

No "Sir" please Mr Respected RoC

I'm an insignificant nobody crawling to my grave as gracefully as possible. My good wishes are with you and all others in PostPoems fraternity.

 

Love is the butterflies fluttering

Inside the love-filled chest

While climbing to her apartment

Dry lips and throat shaky finger

Ringing the doorbell

When she opens the door

A CPD may be necessary Cry

Strange feeling

Gyrate this heart.


She thought that she had nothing else to give,

such tongues had pulled her words asunder,

sliding between one another like a quarrel,

speech fell apart, splattering onto paper,

the phrase attached onto a lover’s mouth,

she stared at it, motionless.

“If love is poetry, than we are just nursery rhymes for children.”

You joined in

And I thought you'd given up on writing. I'm so glad to see new words from you.
Beautiful, as always. Thank you, Lady Ashes. It's nice to have you included.
Oh, and even if that nursery rhymes line wasn't part of your submission, it is going in the final anyway. ;)

Contentions of Light, thru fractured people

Reaching for blades of grass

Like expanding growth

In a sippy cup scene

A border line push

 

Senses prick the touch

In time faith sails

With hearts pumping

Desire and steam

 

The lovers breath aloft

Thru winter desert skies

The moon always home

In romantic sultry eyes

RoC's picture

That

Is beyond romantic, and will make a great addition. Thank you for joining in.

A warming fire in the throes

A warming fire in the throes of winter

warding away heathen dangers of night

leading wayward souls to the lifegiving center

giving the blinded and lame strength and sight.

Snow covered trees glisten with magic

wondous songs lift on the breeze

ashes and sorrow follow the tragic

as they wallow forever in shallow seas.

But they too will find it, given the chance

the blaze that lives in each mended heart

all thats needed is a promising glance

and trust that the universe will provide the start

of what resides in us all, never to die

the want and will to love with abandon

heady smoke of herb lifts to the sky

pulling us all into its psychic trance, and

liberating those who heve the courage to ask

for time with those who truly matter most

so stare into the flame, pull from the flask

and try your best not to burn the toast.

Mother Nature is the most gracious of hosts.

 

There. Sorry I'm so verbose!

RoC's picture

Now, why would you apologize?

That is exactly the kind of enigmatic, psychotropic blend of love and pain that I expected from postpoems' own blue caterpillar. Never apologize for art, sir. This will be a most welcomed inclusion. I'm glad you decided to join the fray.

Blue caterpillar?

That's a new one on me.

Mr poofs  "  The blue caterpillar  ".

Lol

Ok here goes

 

The blue caterpillar needs a mate

Much more beautiful than him.

 

He wants her to profess her love

 

To determine

Who

 

Is really in.

 

She spreads her wings

To oohlala

He say

Where have  you been ?

 

My whole life I needed you.

 

Behind these bars

I could not see.

 

I've been chasing cats

And cats have been chasing me.

 

When what I needed

Was a blue caterpillar

That is gonna change

To be

 

Everything that I would hope

 

We would be.

 

When freedom

Is truly Free.

 

KindredSpirit

 

She is Beautiful now !

Sassylass's picture

Soooo

beautifull she spreads her wings

and flutters sultry by

mesmerized he joins her

together in the sky

 

magic has its way with them

metamorphesed in the air

love binds them together

United as a pair

 

:)

Roc on:)

RoC's picture

Thus is the story behind

A caterpillar finding his butterfly
And as the plumes of smoke fly by
While wings flutter weightless in the sky
A wonderland of love is nigh
As from the cocoon new life can arise
And poofs spreads his wings and starts to fly


Had to keep this rhyme going. Ashes dubbed our friend as wonderland's caterpillar a few years ago, and it stuck.

Thoughts

the way the grass grows to the sky

The moon reflects his lover's light

Stars protecting the gods at night

This is love, so true, so bright


Peace and Love,

I'm beginning to think

That this work on love can probably write itself without me
I'm glad your healing heart still allows such beautiful love to reside

Love is...

There is so much to be said about love, that's probably why you feel that way!

 

Love is my religion, without it I do not exist, so thank you for acknowledging that.

Very true

I have managed to open the shores for a tidal wave to crash down. And sifting through the aftermath to create something unique will be just that much more thrilling for me.


You're welcome. It's nice to see that you haven't let stone take place. I did that...once...

Sometimes a big lesson to be learned by some.

Sorry for friction in the thread.

No bad unloving feelings to Most tANYONE writing.

Okay here is my contribution

As humble as it is.

It rhymes

 

 

chaos churns the rivers grime

o'er  smooth stones made of time

filters pure, ancient golden glow

love's fair essence of the soul

 

whittle away chaos gray

write the words you have to say

somewhere in each waterfall

feeling love from a distant call

 

Love and passion here to stay

Washing all the tears away

Listen to your inner soul 

let love heal and make you whole.

 

Peace,

Koko~

Humble?

Madame, you jest, I'm sure.


Love is little more than chaos melded into feeling
It's strikes the chords, it holds the line
A challenge when two become entwined
From pain of past to future healing
A story of a lovely life
Is one where love must never hide
Not from truth, from view, or from its lies
No, love is not a gentle tide
It ebbs of dips on rocky shores
The trick to love is wanting more
Despite the guise of recompense
Love is simply proof in sense

Yes, I was feeling

mighty insecure yesterday.

i regained some confidence today.

thank God!

 

here is the arrow verse re written to my better idea of a contribution.

 

sun has dipped, the night in heat,

 brushing shades of rainbows in my soul

blowing songs so softly sweet

lovers ballads that I'd like to know.

 Moving swiftly, one enticing word,

like a well placed arrow through the air,

In whispered wind, your song is heard 

moistened by poetry, to draw me near

 

i hope Sir Roc, you like it

and can use it

 

thanks for a mentoring,Koko

Ups and downs of love

 while some believe in love and romance

and others believe it's dead

we have only one solution

but to fantasize instead

Love on Rhyme sounds like the need for an introvention

Love on (typo) rhyme or rhyme of love

 
Love on rhyme like a library in heat
Bumping like cable cars
Careening down the street
Chaos and abandon, words unjared 
I'll tell it to you carefully if you just take a seat. 
 
Simple little rhythms stir the heart
Stir the lover's soul to heights new found 
"I love her I love her," they cry into the dark 
 The incendiary that caused the library to burn down 
Simmers and smolders, tearing word structure apart. 
 
The rhyme of love is that there really isn't any
A tasks these poets and soldiers of words do aspire
 I think whew the rhyme to any is many 
I can run this thing home before we get too tried
And the chaos and abandon is not too plenty. 
 
Okay I took the literal side to the assignments 
 
 
RoC's picture

Was meant to be taken

As it was taken.


For love and strength
The two collide
For fear and pain
Love still resides
A fire burns, the embers rise
Awaken love unto this life


Yes, I'd say this will fit firmly in the progression of this love write

It's been so long....

I fell in love with rhyming in time

went on a journey with healing in mind

The wind swept me up and carried me through

The rains dropped heavy when I saw the truth

Never have I felt a love so deep

The rhyme is still with me in dreams when I sleep

Though I have wandered away for a while

I'll never forget all your beautiful smiles

 

 

I don't know how I feel about this little bit of writing but I wanted to contribute... Miss the days of poetic play!

It's never too late

To let the love inside
It's never too far gone
To burn the fires bright
And with your rhyme the song is writ
A blessed verse of poetics

ToLoveLikeAphrodite's picture

A touch of Aphrodite

It's written in the stars you see,

When lovers form their melody

Two souls colliding, hand in hand

A starburst of affection's demand

Oh, lie so softly in the field

Of past wounds, you have now been healed 

Wildflowers speak of only bliss

Your gaze, your smile, the very first kiss


Peace and Love,

Love, embodied

In purest essence, love is shown
In lyric verse, hearts become known
To embrace the lighter side
My dear, these words you bring to light
Can surely find their place inside
This chaotic poetic thrill ride


That looks eerily like a flawless fade out for the ending of the completed work

I felt those words like thunder

lighting fire in my eyes

when sun has set ,you'll not regret

this lover in disguise

I'll touch you and I'll never

let the feelings lit subside
You started it,you won't regret

when I take you to paradise

 

echo...lol

moistened by your poetry, penned to draw me near

now you've lit my passion,verse to lead me there.

The patterns in the sky

The patterns in the sky always seem to spell our names as one

In every direction,  in every element  crossed over and over as we run

Our beautiful game caught by sweet serendipity's melodical dance 

Everything's forgotten yet remembered  in that oh so familiar glance 

As always, I resonate your frequency in this cruel game of little chance 

 

Yeah its rough and the beats dont match like my heart but at least it rhymes. I dont love the title by the way. Its too cliche. Hugss 


Don't let any one shake your dream stars from your eyes, lest your soul Come away with them! -SS

RoC's picture

For the love of rhyme

Too cliche? Does "In the Rhyme of Love" sound better?
You know I'm all OCD, so it has to have both love and rhyme in the title.
Any suggestions are more than welcome.


And for the record. The beats match just as they should, because love isn't fixed in place. It's random, beautiful chaos. Like many worthwhile things are :)
