(Please see our storefront) These expressions of love have been written for the special people in your l


I know you probably heard of William Shakespeare who is the greatest love poet of all time. I believe I'm the next generation love poet because you don't need interpretation to know what I'm saying. What I write is real love and real life and my words flow off your tongue while you read it. Enjoy!

Why I love you?

I love you because God created you just for me.

Took a piece of my rib and had you stayed at my side just for me.

When our lights were cut off we laughed and used candles.

Rent overdue so we drank and smoke camels.

No cable in our home just accustom to three channels.

Lot of storms in our lives but it's nothing we can't handle.

So in tune with each other like keys to a piano.

Ride and die for each other like the series 'Sopranos'.

Why I love you?

I love you because your love is like ecstasy.

You always get the best of me because you're a drug that gets me high even when you're not next to me.

Without you I wouldn't have the faith or the energy to reach my destiny.

Because you're the final piece of the puzzle that completes the rest of me.

You never thought less of me even when my uncle molested me.

In spite of my painful past you never rejected me.

You always accepted me.

And your love-making every morning is always refreshing me.

Why I love you?

I love you because you're my wife.

And you're the love of my life.

It was love at first sight.

When I first saw you on site the word 'love' was the first and last thing I will write.

The first and last thing to recite.

Because I'm the man with an open heart and you the one I invite.

Love Jones
Love Jones

Love Jones is a film worth upholding. It is a beautiful love story full of realistic characters. It is one of the few black films in the last twenty years that deplicts blacks like we truly are: intelligent, cultural and just as obsessed with being in love as anyone else. Larenz Tate plays Darius. Being an author myself I could relate fully to his character. While struggling with his upcoming book he meets Nina played by Nia Long. Nina is a photographer who's struggling just as much as he is, but her feet appear to be on the ground more firmly than Darius'. Darius and Nina begin a passionate love affair that is cut short when Darius' friends and Nina's ex get too involved. This is the perfect example of how a relationship can suffer due to too many " outside " opinions. Darius and Nina realize they cannot focus on their careers because their hearts and minds are on each other. Nina returns to the spot they first met: the sultry poetry and blues club where Darius first spied her. Nina delivers a touching poem in Darius' honor unaware that he is around. The two pick up where they left off and declare their love for one another.

Love in Verse: Classic Poems of the Heart

True love is eternal--and in poetry, it speaks across the ages to both men and women, reminding us of its power, constancy, and depth. In this lovely literary valentine, nearly a hundred evocative, tender poems from some of the most inspired poets of our time celebrate love longed for and finally found; love requited and unrequited; love secret and blazoned across the sky; loves past, present, and yet to come.
