The Plunge of Love, a Poem

Updated on March 7, 2013

when I fell
in love,
spinning down
that vortex of ecstasy--

a fathomless pool
r u s h i n g
up
to meet
my plunging
body--

I failed
to understand
that
the exercise
required

underwater
breathing.

      This poet has no understanding whatsoever of love, in fact I'm thinking has he ever experienced the idealistic formula that it entails, reading this nonsense I fear not.

      Such a shame to explore the regions of a most precious subject without even treading the stage first.

      Apologies! You were both gracious enuff to comment WEEKS ago and I just got around to hitting the "approve" button. Very neglectful. I must admit I'm rather fond of this little poem myself.

      Well I'm just gettng neurotic about your highly charged and exotic words here - very sly and very brilliant - Someone once said - it's all been done , well I guess they haven't read this piece or any other pages here at your hubspace.

      ......and this reads like literary viagra, man oh man I really do need that first cup of coffee now, lol.

      Sending you warm wishes from lake erie time ontario canada 6:47am
