Are You Strong Enough To Love Me?

Are you strong enough to love me,
Are you brave enough to try?
Can you stand ‘fore me securely,
Not fall to your knees and cry?

Are you strong enough to hold on,
To a man who flies life free?
Can you stand with me, face each dawn,
Through life's insecurities?

Are you strong enough to share all,
Our dreams, our fates, our fears?
Can you bear the weight of a fall,
When life brings us unto tears?

Are you strong enough to feel joy,
The joy I would feel in you?
Can you do as I and employ,
Ev'ry kiss to be like new?

Just a single man searching peace,
Love in an age of darkness.
Searching for misery's release,
A soul for my pen's caress.

For I have words inside my heart
Which beg only be written,
Needing only "her," to take part,
Make my poetry flow again.

So do you think you have the nerve,
The guts to attempt this trial...
Are you strong enough to love me?
If so, then show me in style!

Duck!!  

Quite a statement you've made m'friend, and the poem's pretty cool too!  

 May I never be too busy to help another's load,
Then I'll be drinking from the saucer 'cause my cup has overflowed.

Now that's a challenge worthy of Andy Kaufman.

I'm not even strong enough to stomach this poem...LOL  You've sunken even lower than I thought, my friend.  Don't worry, we'll find you someone - anyone.  Hey, Oscar's probably pretty strong, I'd be willing to bet.

No wretching from Beloved Saint--
sentiment should be not taint
this heart's plea
of soul's release
I have walked these coals in hell.

Falter?
Well, I understand...
instictively
woman to man...
Strong enough?
Nay.
I am but weak.
'Tis thirst
or hunger
that ye seek?

A humble girl
who mumbles rhyme
surely is not
worth your time.

Serenity smiles for you, Chris...

yes, this is a very cool poem.
I love the emotions in it and the honesty of those emotions...very well written...
hope the recipient is up to the challenge...
if not...I like serenity's poetic reply *smile*
take care, 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.

I hope she is up to the test!

You deserve to have a lady
who is very nearly a saint
but a I have to tell you Chris
I'm good but that good I ain't!

Wish I had a girl for you
someone to make you smile
someone to bring you joy
to make your life worthwhile

Of his bones are coral made,
Those are pearls that were his eyes;
Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange...

Awesome!  LOL, I'm sure there are plenty of women out there strong enough to love ya, you mushy romantic.  However, are you strong enough to handle what they throw at you?    Exellent poem.

A rose is strong and carries on. A rose finds first the dew from someone's heart for her own growth to return, and the beauty that not only flows within her but she draws it from others. Not watered with rainwater, but well water, from deeper soul searching parts, where the only nourishment is from the soul, and the only poetry that flows is from the very essence of the soul. In that flow, comes pain, happiness, joy every emotion a person could hope to be honored enough to be considered a poet. A rose is shy, but courageous, a rose ventures forth when she feels weak and unworthy and finds that in this garden of life, our words are beautiful drops of wellwater filling one another with sustenance. She gives inspiration, encouragement, and pieces of her own soul unafraid and that is the truest form of expression.
A rose is willing, able and unafraid to draw the poetry from you.....
