You stand me up - Barnsey's Attempts at Poetry

Updated on May 31, 2012

Love Poem For Jeannie

Opposites attract and we are the proof

Nothing in common living under one roof

I, an introvert, you a raging fire

I breathe in your passion and bathe in your desire

For so long voices railed against our designs

One passionate embrace pushed them all from our mind

Age no barrier, burdens no wall

Ups and downs irrelevant, the most honest love of all

If I had known you would we have come to this?

If you'd relented would we even exist?

You are the fire that burns within me and gives me hope when all seems lost

You are the extra push I need while by these winds my world is tossed.

I have no love or purpose without you in my life

I never would have survived, my world so marred with strife.

Nearly twenty years have passed and there is little we have not seen or done

If I was asked if I had any regrets I would say there was just one.

I should have loved you more and looked past all your faults,

I should have listened closer, the advice you gave for naught

I wish I held you closer so now you would still feel the same,

and I wish we could communicate better so our together was not so strained.

I remember the passion and I remember the issues with trust

I recall the unwavering support but mostly I remember us.

This is to Queen,

For without you...there can me.

      Fantastic. I enjoyed reading it and feeling the emotions with you. A wonderful progression from start to end.

      I know what you mean about poetry. It is wonderfully "neat"! And addicting! Once you start I don't think you can ever stop. So keep writing them! :)

      If you have time, would you mind reading my latest hub "Their First Time" - I am trying to decipher if it is any good and I would really like your input.

      This poem is wonderful, the emotion you've managed to draw out is great and makes me feel as if I was watching this relationship play out on a movie screen. Well done, keep at this poetry thing!

      Nicely done. Females and males can all take a lesson from this poem's keys to a better married relationship that works to survive the years and bring more joy. Up and awesome.
