Poetic relationship


A relationship like a poem

Is something you must select alone

Some you have to get to know

Some on you, over time, do grow

Some are love at first sight

Some are a stand of one night

Some driven by passion

Others by love of a fashion

Some you remember all your life

Some calm, others full of strife

Carefully nurtured, groomed and planned

Errors corrected, or they're built on sand

      In others poetry we can communicate with the inner feelings, the heart of someone, so often hidden on the outside.

      • Bella Shepard

        I read this poem aloud several times, and each time it became more endearing, and so very true. The symbolism is outstanding and it's a definite fav!

          An either way image and metaphor. Each also a reflection of the other for the players in both are in possession of hearts and minds that interlock and grow and transform. TFS!

          • L. B. Mek

            indeed, i can so relate
            there's a hint of the poetic, in most relationships
            even those disasters we try to forget..
            thanks for sharing dear Poet
