A Matter For Poets

To love or be loved is a matter for poets
not those whose hearts are entwined.
With arms reaching out to enfold one another
love is sheltered, protected from time.
The moment consumes the grief from their past,
devouring all of their fear.
Everafter is found in the gentelest kiss,
while another erases a tear.
With peace in their soul, joy erups as quiet laughter,
to comfort the pain of broken dreams.
But the poet who sees yesterday and tomorrow
thinks the moment is not what it seems.

Thanks, we are the only folks I know who can screw up the whole works, shrug our shoulders and say something good came out of it when the only good thing that happened was it gave us inspiration. Yes, we are a funny bunch.

I once read a poet must fall in love to write...maybe not true, but it sure does wonders for the writing

I have to agree, Hoot. Don't see how anyone could write poetry without some of their own love or in-love exposing themself.
Thanks for the reply.
