Far too often I have heard and even said it myself in the past that I am giving up on love, but the older I get the more I come to realized for better or worse love is life an life is love. What a sad desparate world does the person who hides themselves inside their mind guarding zealously their heart to keep it from getting broken...

Yea…it hurts like hell

Aches like shit

Broken hearts

Make souls rip

Mind grows wild

Stomach churns

Tears threaten floods

Anger  burns

Despair enters

Want to die

Too sad to live

So alone you cry


Never, never…

Never again!


A little smile

Gentle hand

Listens close

Seems to understand

First a little kiss

with a warm hug

Is it warm in here

Cupids tug

Butterflies and dreams

Phone calls to say hi

Life stories shared

Even safe to cry


Maybe, maybe

This is it!


It matters not

Life is love

Tears and laughter

From above

Not all is roses

Thorns come too

Yet life is living

Not passing through

So never say never

To love’s sweet rope

Enjoy each moment

With sweet dear hope.

Even as the reader, the negative thoughts pulled me down and then, you lifted me back up with the positive. To love is to live.

"Love's sweet rope" - such a beautiful expression, Felix and, as man of the sea, I can just imagine your lovenest roped and tied with all manner of wonderful love knots and reef knots and half-bosuns or whatever! This has wonderful voicing, tender and tentative and yet also strong and determined: and balanced finely, too. Love and hope spring eternal here, Pops, and definitely will NEVER be given up on! TY and bless you, Kate xx

love is the emotion of the universe and moves us closer to completion ... the pain of life's travails dissipate as we blend into love's motion ... your wisdom is blending you, Felix ...

Knowing how wonderful life is when you find love then it's worth doing it all over again. The heart is resillient. I felt the pain and longing in this poem Fee. You are very agile with that heart too and you sure can animate it's passion and pain.

Reviewed by Birgit and Roger Pratcher 5/23/2006
So right you are, so true it is. To give up on love and close out the world should never be an option and, most of all, love comes in many ways and with many faces, sometimes we just have to look a little closer to see it. Wonderful write,
Love, Birgit and Roger
