By looking you could not see
the storm of unsettle that was she
at once perfect stillness
and then complete madness
without warning could lay waste to a heart
With love all mixed up in her head
she loved deeper than others compared
with her heart not her head ruling
there was no one she was fooling
more than she fooled herself
Love was what she was
and nothing else gave her pause
but the force of love in the path of her storm
the caring thought and touch made her warm
and calmed the impending destruction
By looking you could not see
the depth of passion that was he
on the surface seemingly docile
beneath the surface was volatile
a slow burn lay waste to his heart
With love and need confused
his heart give or take he refused
still waters, no, molten lava runs deep
passion aside to others he could keep
the facade of cold and uncaring
Love was what he needed
but not to what he conceded
to touch and be touched by one
whose kindred spirit recognized his own
and stoked fires within he understood
They met the day the hurricane came
A tornado, a volcano, in the midst of chaos and rain
Love was theirs although odd in its ways
still they met and collided, hearts left dazed
too much too big, yet all there was.
Three forces together all destruction and pain
can the winds and fire be cooled and restrained
It’s the perfect storm
passion and love hidden, forlorn
Two wrecked souls and a hurricane.
I had something else for today’s Romantic Mday post, partly why this is late. Sometimes we are inspired by the things that are going on around us. Edward Hotspur, who began this neat little feature (for lack of a better word) and has done logos and is linking everyone together. as well as writing some really romantic stuff. or maybe the writing should be first so the list is not in order of importance I guess, put out a reminder this past weekend;
If you want to participate today, here’s what you do: Write a blog post that celebrates Romance!Your post can be in the form of a poem, a photo collage, a video, a fictional story, a story about that special someone, an anniversary or date you had, a lament for a lost love, or some combination of these – it can even be sexy, dark, gothic, erotic or Gorean. The only rule is that it has to beRomantic! Leave a comment with a link to your romantic post, and I’ll link to it at the bottom of this post, and perhaps everyone will link to them. We’ll make Romance last!
That would be, leaving a comment on his post which is linked with his name above and let’s get as many people involved in this as we can… Now somewhere I saw something about haunting because this is the Mday before Halloween and I was doing a cute little love story between a pumpkin and a ghost and how the witch tried to squash their love…. oh never mind, but this little poetic offering was in bits and pieces needing something to tie it together…and its kind of haunting no? maybe?
Nothing like a little storm with high winds, rain and a power outage to spark a little romance right? ok, just trying to find the silver lining for all you folks affected. Stay safe and warm and if you are holed up with your romantic partner.. stay naked. What? Just saying I would be… geesh.
Lizzie Cracked.. and not yet broken.

How did you possibly miss the broccoli poem? Sheesh. You need to get out more often.

ROFL! I could have sworn you did. Of course it is romantic…lmao…tears and everything…

I have oodles but I never thought I was poetic.. until lately I mean – and even then eh.. well hey this one kinda has a limerick rhythm doesn’t it? it came so close to having a bit of a limerick ending.. such a conundrum – funny or romantic hmmmmm
thank you. 😀
Lizzie, this was just beautiful. I’m gobsmacked. I raise a glass to you: May you never be broken!
😳 gobsmacked is not a word I hear often – I mean a lot of people don;t even know about it – great word though and I really appreciate it 🙂
Nothing else seemed to fit. It was amazing.
thanks 🙂 – and this was in the spam box 😦
Wow! This was a terrific piece of writing.

A quite beautiful and appropriate poem for today, Lizzie.. As Sandy, that most volatile lovers has departed, but left us with reminders of her presence.
