There's a stain on your life

It is huge and dark

Feeling sad over a breakup

You see him with another woman in the park

How could he treat you like this?

He's just impersonating a man

Will a guy ever make you happy?

Just like Obama,oh yes I can

You try so hard to get rid of it.

It grows deeply into your soul like a cancer

You feel as if nothing can remove it

I come into your life as the enhancer

Its time for a big change

Your mark will leave instantly

I'm going to make you feel special

By loving you constantly

Hold my hand,share this moment

Look deep into my eyes

My words and feelings are true

They're not full of lies.

I'll never hurt you in this lifetime

You deserve the greatest love of them all

Being here,being there for you always

I'll not let your spirit fall

My first name is not Bounty

My middle name is not Paper

My last name is not Towels

But I'm the Quicker-Lift You-Upper

Kiss the pain

Kiss the dirt

Kiss the stain

Kiss the hurt

Well done! Very creative.

Reviewed by Jeanette Cooper
Edwin, this is definitely an interesting poem that seems to have underlying facets that might be interpreted more than one way. The "stain" seems to be a sickness of the soul that makes one "different" that has created pain by the loss of a lover. "Dry Cleaner" had me reading the poem twice to look for shades of subtley.

That is quite a devoted kind of love. Touches the heart! ~Elizabeth :)

Haven't we all noticed the stain? It seems stains are an integral part of life. If you haven't noticed a stain, then you aren't living.

A unique, innovative write, Edwin. Good job!

clever, very clever Edwin -- it is very reminiscent of a song I am fond of -- "Making Memories of Us", by Rodney Crowell -- "and I'm going to love you like nobody loves you -- and I'll earn your trust making memories of us" -- your poem grabs at the realities of love and dedication, with a flair for the novel -- well done my friend -- peace and love -- Jon Michael

I love the intensity, the compassion, the clear-eyed realism, the down-to-earth desire to bless and to heal and to succour in this fabulous write, Edwin. And especially the strength and support in these amazing lines:

Kiss the pain

Kiss the dirt

Kiss the stain

Edwin, you are 'truly' one of the great poets on this site--and, quite frankly, anywhere.

Perfect, my friend, much enjoyed.

Down to earth and very real this poetry comees from the heart and reminds me of the movie where the boy is always just there in the background lovin but never being loved.
