‘3 Facts of Love Beyond Valentines’: Greatest Poems of Love and Hope: A Life Circle: About the Values of Love.

3 Facts of Love Beyond Valentines.

‘3 Facts of Love Beyond Valentines’: Greatest Poems of Love and Hope: A Life Circle: About the Values of Love; by Pearldiver, looks at what we consider makes love amazing, fleeting and worth celebrating. Love is no longer Simply Love; it is big business and its promotion creates a multi billion dollar income for a diverse range of businesses every week, collectively throughout the world.

What was first written to be best experienced in an unconditional environment, has by that very suggestion, throughout history become a poorer slave to restrictive and controlled commercial conditions. There are no boundaries to the success of ‘selling’ Love. I recall once, being given the advice of letting go, in the forlorn hope that it would come back; only to find that every married couple that I met for the next ten years, had a poster in their home stating the exact thing. Amazing, I thought (well cured, I must say) so this is how extra marital affairs are justified; surely the phone number of the divorce lawyer, at the bottom of the verse on the poster is only there for aesthetic balance!

Irrespective of the ‘practical’ reasons to step outside of the ‘emotive’ rationale that we immerse ourselves in when someone really does ‘ring our bell,’ being In Love is a state of being, beyond any other experience. For each of us, it is different and for each of us, it is an opportunity to find within, the purity of one’s heart and the depth of one’s character and vulnerability. Those are three aspects of ‘being’ that should never be taken for granted, abused, or given away foolishly; but alas the call of Love is such, that we will always tend to ignore prudence. As a result, historically ambulances are often very busy at the foot of many a great cliff, or those in doubt, sadly many find that the most honest place to stash prudence, is in a cell phone directory, under the name poster or something similar; anything but My Relationship Lawyer’s phone number!

Enjoy..

Enjoy the Commercialization of Love, enjoy every single piece of Valentine’s Day attention that is directed at you and enjoy the warm, fuzzy feelings and waves that can only be created by two, merging as one. If your love is unconditional, then you ask for nothing in return and you make no conditions for the purity of the gift that you give. Just in case, prudence dictates that we each must consider the ‘what ifs’ before we really get serious with a partner.

3 Facts of Love Beyond Valentines, contains three different factors to consider in your pursuit of Love. Each poem carries a message and provides a standard to think about, when you take the time to consider what Love means to you and what you are prepared to concede on, just in case, just for Love. Please, enjoy ‘3 Facts of Love Beyond Valentines’ by Pearldiver.

♥ Forever, My Love ♥


Love me, for my tactlessness

Love me, for my vanity

Love me, for my crooked smile

And I will Love you, just the way you are

Far, far longer, than just awhile


Love me, for my hopelessness

Love me, for the mistakes I make

Love me, for my vulnerability

And I will Love you, just the way you are

Far, far longer, than we’ll be


I’ll Love you, for all seasons

I’ll Love you, beyond all time

I’ll Love you, for your heart

And will you Love me, just the way I am

Forever, promise not to part?


Conditions, Love; ‘let’s make a deal’

Sadly; ‘bound by cold, steely clauses’

To hold; ‘our hearts, our insecure souls’

Just in case; ‘the ways we are’

‘Fall short, in these open, trusting, loving roles.’

♥ I Really Want You ♥ – In Past Valentine Genre ♥


This is a poem of a past era

When one could not just simply say

‘Let’s cut to the chase, I just want you now!’

I am glad, as a modern man

That I can not ‘respect’ that way

It is sad, for romance and women

That so many guys don’t care

Or just don’t know; how to play!

So, in a past Valentine Genre:

When people took time to want and to love

Here is an; “I Really Want You”

In a language lost, irrelevant today:


I am humbly, a mere man

Mute to all, bar the simplest definition

Unable to convey a complex feeling to you

I, a mere man, of wicked intent

For there are so many

And I am humbly, a mere man

Unable to read the subtleties

Of all women and their womanhood

For such a state of being

Can only be the greatest secret

Unknown to all mere men

Yet so openly flaunted to our affliction

I, a mere man, of as yet futile, intent

Do solemnly pledge undying support

To that cause of which remains, unknown

Yet fills my every living, non humble sense


These words may never quench a thirst

Nor rescue one from any bondage felt

For they are merely humble words of man

In great awe, of every woman found

Just being, amazing in her role

Within her total womanhood


So women, forgive this clumsy, simple declaration

Of such feelings borne, unable to convey

Of luck and hope, bestowed on all

We mere men

And of all those subtleties contained within

This wish, to always love

The magnificence, of you

Beyond the courage

Of this Valentine’s Day

Beyond all wild, wondrous, wicked intent

Beyond man’s complex, yet definitive lust

Each woman, within her total womanhood

Seeks a friend to understand her

And a lover who will always be true


And by the way;

Dearest Valentine…

I Really, Really Want You!

♥ Te Amo ♥


We are each, in flow

As if, in streams

Moving in time

Silently forward

Ambling, to and fro


Towards our sea

We meet

We love

We miss

In flow


Always we will be….

Te Amo

I will always Love You

In flow

Unconditionally...

How reassuring to read well thought out, well constructed, well spelt poetry that is real poetry on HubPages.

I was beginning to despair!

They, all three, are lovely in the extreme, but I must admit that I have a preference for "? I Really Want You ?". It's elegant, it's masterful.

Hi Twilight Lawns, Thank you. For taking the time to read this work and your much appreciated comments. Yes, it is indeed all about the commercial values of each aspect of our once non-monetized, advert-free lives. I note that the Statistics above declare this work to hold the lowest potential advertising income on this site! Perhaps this is the very reason there are so few poets on Hubpages.. we are considered to be of lowly value - isn't that amazing! How sad that today we are expected to prostitute golden words for the promotion of something so classically important as a plastic toilet seat or a multi-functional lunchbox? I promise to remain loyal to golden words over the wisdom and personality of a plastic container! Take Care mon ami...

Don't worry, I'm not going to play table tennis with you on this subject (although it is very dear to my heart) but you say, "Perhaps this is the very reason there are so few poets on Hubpages..", but there are a hell of a lot on HP who THINK they are poets so long as they produce (vaguely) rhyming couplets; frequently at the expense of mean and/value, and think they have written poetry; churning them out, frequently, one or more, per day!!!

That is where I despaired.

Statistics don't matter to me so much. What does, is that little word: integrity

Well Said TL.. and thank you again. I have encountered some who would fit into that questionable category. I believe many consider 'poetry' to be an 'easy' art form. That is something that has always intrigued me here, as NO Art Form is 'easy' in my view... it is the achievement of performance excellence, consistently, that I believe, allows one to consider their ability worthy of approaching the art form, not visa versa. I relate to Japanese Art and Martial Arts, both of which maintain a true level of mastery in each respective stage of the art form. As such, I can only ever gain a higher Dan by never compromising that little word that you have so masterly used. Thank you for your kind support of my efforts to become worthy of the art form. And I don't mind table tennis, in either singles or doubles btw! Cheers TL.

2uesday 5 years ago from - on the web, I am 2uesday.

I confess I altered the poll result by voting, changed it completely with my one vote. Voted the hub up too.

Writing comments is never easy for me, I just wanted to say that I enjoyed reading the poetry and the pictures.

Pearldiver 5 years ago from Tomorrow - In Words & NZ Time. Author

Hi 2uesday, thanks for reading this work, for making your comment and for voting in the poll. You did alter the results and that's excellent as the poll also shows the low percentage of readers that will actually vote when asked. So cheers for that. You write good comments and they are much appreciated - What is hard about that? Remember, we are all only people and doing things that are not easy, is the way we grow. Believe in you and you will grow your confidence 2uesday... with such a strong name, confidence is a must. Take care.. good on you.

I really enjoyed this poetry... I read each several times... I specially liked the 2nd and 3rd, not quite sure which one more... but voted for the 3rd on your poll... probably because it was shorter? or because it included "I love you" in spanish!? I look forward to reading more...

There is something about your introduction to these poems that affected me deeply. I think it was this line, "For each of us, it is different and for each of us, it is an opportunity to find within, the purity of one’s heart and the depth of one’s character and vulnerability." I might add that losing love is to find the self of you that you never wished to find. I love your writing.

Pearldiver 3 years ago from Tomorrow - In Words & NZ Time. Author

Hi there Visitor ( :) ) I do hope that what affected you was all good... as I do appreciate your comments here... Thank you. You know, when I read your post, at first I didn't recognize those words I had written back when I first published this piece... I have surprised myself with the words for which I had hoped, would surprise others! So cheers, I hope that feeling does not wane... Take care Billie... PD

Somehow I had missed this one! 'I really want you', seems to speak to me.... Very touching, coming from ...... the opposite side! Women, we need that softer side of love, and men.... I really don't know what they need, LOL! But you have put it very nicely and thoughtfully.

Did enjoy all of them as always. Take care....

Pearldiver 3 years ago from Tomorrow - In Words & NZ Time. Author

Oh Ditto... sorry I hadn't replied until now. Yes, you have read 'I really want you' perfectly... and unfortunately many men have no idea of how to play the role in a romantic sense.. Oh well, as sad as that may be, it just makes for more fun for those who do :) Cheers for your softer side.. as always... take care
