Love Poems Lost At Sea


Love Poems Lost At Sea

Lovely little love poems
Filled with passion and amor
Do they lose their worth
If the intended fails to adore
With heart and soul
love poems tend to woo
so accept his caring message
his words are meant for you

Many poets go unread
like clouds in a sunny sky
with unrequited metaphors
unloved poets live to die
if love poems wilt away
when a lover denies his plea
this poet prefers to disappear
with my love poems lost at sea

  1. Ah, yes…better it is to have them lost at sea than not enjoyed by their intended subjects. Great poetry, my friend, and your daughter has quite the eye for photography. Beautiful!

  2. As a young girl, I put a message in a bottle. I didn’t live anywhere close to the ocean, so I threw it off a waterfall (if you’ve seen the movie, The Last Of The Mohicans, you’ll know which one.) I wrote “I’m ten years old. When I grow up, I want to be alive. If you find this, please come rescue me.”)
    What a silly little girl.

  3. I think good poetry is timeless and independent of the time, place and circumstances in which it was written (although these might be interesting for scholars to investigate). In other words, love poetry shouldn’t be thrown away just because it didn’t lead anywhere romantically. πŸ™‚

  4. Had a suitor before who kept writing me love poems. Thought they were lovely and I was grateful. But I only loved him as a friend and he wanted to be more. Now, thinking back to all his writings, I still treasure them even though his intentions and expectations were not met. He may have lost me (or I have lost him) but his poems lasted forever.

  6. This reminded me of an article’s main idea, that if you are a poet in a troubled country, you will be immortalized, and just a commoner in a well off country. πŸ™‚

  8. Reblogged this on The Lonely Author and commented:

    Hola people. The struggle is real. I stared at a blank page for three hours while Allie watched Grey’s Anatomy on Netflix. So, while I was trying to retrieve my romantic mojo she was sighing to McDreamy and McSteamy. Meanwhile McChimpy was McBlanky. Here is a reblog for anyone who may have missed it, while I rant to the Gods of Poetry.


  9. I haven’t read this piece. Thanks for sharing again. Allie is watching the T.V, is that not what she ought to be doing? I once fell into this poetic block and it wasn’t fun. I told everyone who cared to listen but my thoughts just refused to process in poetic lines. One day, She came back looking for me, she flooded my heart and I did nothing else but write poems. Poem would come back, she sure loves you too much to stay gone.

    • We watch tv together, but lately it’s Grey Anatomy marathons. In the past I have experienced a little writer’s block with my novel writing, but I would start editing and I would snap out of it. But now writing poetry I don’t have editing to fall back on. So, it has been frustrating. Thanks for stopping by to read and share your experiences.
