This is not a love poem (again)

The sort you'll find in bookstores

and greeting card racks,

 

with nice colors and illustrations,

with words, simple and sweet.

 

It doesn't have a dried rose petal

with leaves and stem on the page.

 

It doesn't come with a bouquet either

wrapped with eucalyptus or rosemary’s.

 

It doesn't know how to start,

and not sure how to end.

 

It's like that nimbus cloud

hovering in your sky,

 

but never letting go

of the rain.

I agree with Rumi. I remember this one from around the time of Valentine's Day if I'm not mistaken.

 

I like how the poem builds up to the perfect culmination:

I can feel the tension.

Yes this is not a love poem - this is a real love Joel :).

 

I loved the poem.

Very emotional, poetical, deep.

 

Wonderful.
