L. B. Mek


This thing, overwhelming 

Taking over, everything 


Crazy, yesterday morning 

A world existed, fully realised

Laughter, bad days

An entirety of reality


Now, your name


Takes up every other



Eyelashes, apparently 

Are now, something I notice

All of a sudden 

Memorising lengths and angles of curl 

Symmetry of their butterfly flutter

As serenading blinks


A thing, I’m obsessed with

Since a quarter to midnight 

Last night


As our lips, alcohol tinged

Introduced themselves 

Your eyelashes, bombarded 

My cheeks 

So now every few minutes 

I’m brushing the back of my hand

On my own face, lost to a mirage

Relieving that furnace, embrace 


I’m scared

I’m exhilaratingly awash with hope

I’m scared 

I’m scintillatingly amazed with life


I’m forgetting 

What reality felt like, before

Your smile

Became both my twilights 



I’m texting, I’m on my way



Till I read your reply, realising 

I has now become, our ‘we’


Your text stated you’re already 



Rushing, to meet me


Oh dear heart, what have we began…

      What's not to be loved & then some ..

      • L. B. Mek

        (it be by your '& then some's', Hyung
        I get a sip of Poesy's, rewarding elixirs)
        onwards, to those lonely blank pages
        ever onwards my friend, thank you!

      • sorenbarrett

        An appropriate timing for the United States where it is to be Valentines day. Refreshing and lovely for the day.

        • L. B. Mek

          indeed, dear Poet
          refreshing, is what I was hoping to portray/emote
          thank you!

        • Fay Slimm.

          A Valentine tale designed to take breath away and it certainly twined itself around my ever-romantic sense of the value its set-aside date places on that sudden feeling from just one kiss. A lovely read of love in the making.

          • L. B. Mek

            'everything looks lovely, while it's budding...'
            so glad you connected with the pacing
            dear Fay
            I was trying to imbue a breathlessness
            to try and capture that suddenness
            when we find ourselves falling, without warning

          • Kinsley Lee

            Hi! L.B. Thank you for your poem. I was impressed. Happy days!

            • L. B. Mek

              hi and thank you, kind Poet
              glad you enjoyed the read

            • Jerry Reynolds

              A fine poem, L.B.
              I choose love.

              • L. B. Mek

                I too choose love, as my weapon
                in this
                my embattled state, as existence
                (Hope you're having a decent start to the year Jerry
                almost at Spring's door, grateful
                for life's small mercies, stay safe my friend)

              • Poetic Dan

                Absolutely brilliant and yes it will always believe no matter what we do.....I was also told its a butterfly kiss to have those eyes flutter on us!
                Great stuff as ever

                • L. B. Mek

                  'eyelashes gifting butterfly kisses
                  while lips, tattoo life's memories'
                  ah dear treasured Poet, what a goofy smile
                  you gift me brother, thank you!

                • MiddleMood

                  Apparently, Eye lashes .
                  Are now, something I notice .

                  What an apt description of love .

                  • L. B. Mek

                    glad you enjoyed the read kind poet
                    thank you!
                    (it's those small, yet monumental
                    sensations, that make falling in love
                    worth all the suffering and pain
                    in our chaotic existence, or so I think...)

                  • Bella Shepard

                    The imagery of eyelashes puts me in mind of buttefly kisses, so gentle upon the cheek. When love comes rushing from both sides, it collides and fuses, and the joy is overwhelming. This is romance at its best dear friend, each day should be Valentines Day.

                    • L. B. Mek

                      ' each day should be Valentines Day.'
                      and it so easily can, my friend
                      thank you

                    • John Prophet

                      Yup, when that love bug bites the infection is immediate. Wonderful write โœ๏ธ

                      • L. B. Mek

                        indeed, a bug bite as our gifted delight
                        glad you enjoyed the read, dear Poet

                      • Addy

                        Nice writing! I like your style

                        • L. B. Mek
