Love Not

by Michael


Love not the man of artistry,
the painter of a timid sea,
nor seek to know where words are born.
He keeps to self, his heart forlorn.

For years he stored against the day,
when darkness, on his soul, would prey.,
stored hope and strength that he not lose.
This man is not one you would choose.

A walker on the sands of old.
A gatherer of sunsets, gold.
He is a man with distant eyes.
His soul is that of seagull cries.

He is a man that walks alone.
His hand can never hold your own.


Michael Auguste~
There is more depth to the heart than the mind can comprehend and it only has boundaries when we choose to fence it in.

O My! Michael. How very wise is the reply of Rose Petal. I could add nothing more. There is no darkness that a sweet woman will not brighten. They are God's candles! Thanks for bringing up the thought.

My friend, I think this is one of your best.

I adore it!

And I think you would agree with Silver Streak's comment about women being God's Candles. OMGosh..what a beautiful thought, eh? LOL!

For all who watch.Dare you say hello? Come in and ask the questions that are on your mind, but spare me your judgement until you truly sipped of me.

Auguste, I also paint, and I have always been a loner. This is so so true, But poetry brought me out, and I see it did you too.. How lucky we are that you now write and we can enjoy your wonderful words. floria

exactly the kind of guy I'm always attracted to! but I adore this:

"He is a man with distant eyes.
His soul is that of seagull cries."

Yep, that's the guy, alright! Wonderful writing Michael!

absolutely beautiful... as a loner myself, I know where you are. You have a wonderful way to express your feelings. I should like to keep a copy of this with your permission.

Such a healtfelt write this was, but I saw so many paths of hope to offer, but you can only point the way, it is up to the lost to find their way in the end.  What a great poem Michael.

catch his own breath."

Ah Michael, such sad reflection in this piece. Very beautifully written, with perfect flow, but very sad…almost hauntingly so.

If she who dies with the most toys wins, then can I have some toy boys please?
