Affair Of Emotions

Affair Of Emotions short poem

Uploaded by cphawkins91

Logic races toward oblivion,
In a little black dress and heels.
Whispering words of love in your ear.

Reason waits in the house,
In yesterday’s shirt.
Wanting very badly to be held.

Passion consumes only in secret places,
Clad in lace and silk.
Tempting the beast that slumbers within.

Love lingers in the mundane,
Wrapped in a soft blanket.
Surrounding you with the smell of her.

Anger sits at the door,
In a black suit and tie.
Shouting obscenities at the lawn.

Bitterness creeps along the baseboards,
Swathed in ill-fitting jeans.
Choking down your advances in favor of sleep.

Indifference blindly maneuvers without care,
In dirty shorts.
Oblivious to the outside world.

Sadness drapes upon your shoulders.
In a warm, heavy coat,
Reminding you of love lost.

Excitement swells among the forbidden,
In dresses that reveal too much.
Promising dreams they can never fulfill.

Happiness glows in the unexpected,
With messy hair and a baggy T-shirt.
Saying be content with what you have.

Barter Of Emotions ballad

Two people met, accidentally. With no rhyme or reason, Not knowing where to begin, Unsure what to hold as conversation. Just when the silence was getting unbearable, There was a klink on the glass window. Slow drizzle of words poured

My Pain My Emotions short poem

It’s not our divorce that sets my heart on fire. It’s not your betrayal that slashes it apart. It’s not your sarcastic tongue that condemns my humanity. Brutal memories of our past haunt me the most. Love comes with joy
