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
to meet
my plunging

I failed
to understand
the exercise

      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.

      DIOGENES and EPI--

      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
