Pure Love

Standing in silence,
where land meets the sea,
I have come to talk to you again,
with unspoken words of love.
I go back on a memory
to that summer place
somewhere , somewhere only we knew

When the sunset came down upon the shore
and in the fading light we danced in the dark
to the song of a summer place
Like a lighthouse, your guiding light
always there forever beckoning.

You made it so easy
The way you did
The things you did

Pure love, pure love
You gave me pure love

With the sea at your feet
you strayed into my arms
and there you stayed
with the raging sea
the untamed waves
crushing your heart

Oh girl, with you
Every day was something new
the woman in you fulfilled everything I needed
You touched so easily
You felt so easily

Oh, Mercy Mercy me 
What was going on?
Why was it so hard for me to say and do

all the things I really felt?


You made it so easy
The way you did
The things you did

Pure love, pure love
You gave me pure love


I watched your heart break
right from the start
I took everything you gave
and gave nothing in return
and now you are gone

Try to understand

some things never change
believe me, I tried but 
I held it all inside 
and threw away all 
that we could have been.

You made it so easy
The way you did
The things you did

Pure love, pure love
You gave me pure love

An unusual form, but the content is superb. Very descriptive and tugs at the emotions. Well done.

Indeed it can and should be set to music. Strong beautiful images. Well done.

thegateless.org Come on over and check out my poetry substack y'all;-) Or if your bored, head to the Zazzle store: https://www.zazzle.com/store/gateless. If you buy anything I lose a bet, so consider that before you violate the digital rules.
