All Of You

All Of You prose poem

Photo by shimelle

It is not simply what you do that makes me feel loved by you

Nor is it merely what you say that leads to a better way
No, I do not even think that it is the things you share
That proves to me that you care

But I dare to say that it is all the ingredients that make up
The perfection of God’s Love, that take away the fear, and
Create one such as you, so precious and so dear

And no doubt it is the composition of the doings, the sayings, and the sharing, that make for a grandiose orchestration of a divine presentation.

It is the way that you take all of you and give it all you’ve got
Yes, my dear wife, it is the way that you pour in all of you leaving nothing out in all you do.

All I Unread

All I Unread short poem

I unwrite a song for she, a gratis homage. Questioning imperils the sky, clouds would not weep. A cover-up comes to quote scriptures the meaning of deployment. Was I feeling smug after counting the pages of unread death? ———————————————– I

All The Griefs

All The Griefs short poem

The mysterious rival: suffering of resignation. I am reading myself for the surrealism of life, juxtaposition of love and hate. Another blast went off. White rose and black rose in the same garland; ruins of truth were older than lies.
