Life, Love, Beauty, Fleeting

Updated on April 26, 2020

Poetry is turning out to be a very cathartic medium, I should do this more often.

Set the Mood


Look upon myself in the mirror,

Beauty shall be lost to passing time.

Could there be a reflection dearer,

To not acknowledge it would be crime.

Then I’d rather be looking at you,

Come and upon you I shall gaze.

I hope you would look upon me too,

With our eyes we shall graze.

Now let us explore with our hands,

Wish to feel your touch on my skin.

We give in to each other’s demands,

Our patience with love never wearing thin.

Let us take it to the next step,

Press your lips tight against mine.

Exploring one another’s deepest depths,

Has been sweeter than any wine.

Let us lay down in the grass,

Tongues now locked in bliss.

Take your time, not too fast,

Lest a single detail be missed.

Hold me now and do so tightly,

I hope you never let me go.

Grip my heart but do so lightly,

If you need me let me know.

We could lay here together,

Never have to go back.

We can stay here forever,

Keep this train on the track.

But time will see us part,

A tale that can’t be denied.

So then shall the pain start,

And for our love I have cried.

Spread Some Love

It doesn't take much out of you and your day to tell someone they are beautiful, to offer them a compliment, to let them know that you love them. You just may be providing the light at the end of the tunnel to someone who feels they are otherwise stuck in the darkness. It'd cost everyone more to let love fall by the wayside, or to keep all the love within you to yourself.

Spread some love today, and manifest the beauty we all deserve to admire!

      Most definitely, Brenda, and when those moments pass I often think about the memories of those moments. Do we feel fuller for those memories, or do they only make us acknowledge their absence in the present?

      Better to have loved and lost, no?

      Thanks for reading!

      Sounds amazing. Just what someone needs after a tiring day. A great pick can be wonderful in the moment.

      Nice write.

      We all deserve to be happy, and the best way to show it is by making the little things in life count.

      Thank you for reminding us that the best things in life are free.

      Great piece Kyler

      I'm happy I could share such wonderful imagery with you, Shauna, and that you have a place to retreat to and have them resonate. Such important thoughts and memories, the sentiments therein calling for us all to see beauty, and you never cease to embody such ideas.

      Thanks for reading, and keep being amazing!

      Beautiful thoughts, Kyler. You took me from seeing the aging me to the beautiful, free me. It was a warm breezy day. I was in a meadow with someone who gave me butterflies with each gentle touch. We were far away from the world, in our own paradise. It was bliss.

      Thank you for the visions this put in my head!

      @Lorna: I'm happy to receive such praise, Lorna, and it is the light in the darkness of which I've spoken for you to come here and give your generosity to me!

      Thanks for reading!

      @Ruby: You have a warm, smiling hello from me and a big wave too! I saw you have written a new piece and I've felt bad I can't keep up with everyone! I'm so behind!

      Hoping to catch up here soon! Thanks for reading!

      A lovely romantic interlude Kyler and your first verse summed it up for me. Someone will never forget how you make them feel by what you say to them. Words of love are so precious and bring much needed joy. Great poem with a timeless message.

      This poetry is deeply inspiring, and yes, it doesn't take long to compliment someone, and a smiling hello is always appreciated.
