Love me not
For my words of passion sweet
Others choose words as such
Letters combined randomly
And vain are words
When compared to reality

Love me not
For my looks of passing youth
Others have more beauty
Still longer keep, this is true
And all looks fade
There is no greater truth

Love me not
For money that might seem much
Others have their own horde
Their own treasure as such
And coins change hands
But can never hold nor touch

Love me not
For habitís sake feel must do
Others been down that road
Holding onto past that flew
And love only
Because I love only you

Hi there.   This is a wonderful poem.  Love is overcomplicated sometimes isn't it?

*SIGH*

somethings dont require words...
stalking you in silence,
your jm

 Well the sun sets gently on your shoulders
And it makes me want to touch you there.
And the light in your eyes makes me feel
Like there's something much better out there
Something kind...
And I know someday I might be looking around
Trying to find some purpose
Well purpose it can't be that hard to find
As long as I've got the wind...
The wind and your love to carry me.

This is warm, and sincere...It's true, that sometimes we "love" for all the wrong reasons.  I like how you always end your poems with such a powerful punch - very nice!  Another beautiful rhyme from you...
