June Poetry Day 19 – Love Poems

So a few of my favorite love poems, Shakespeare, Gibran and one of my own

Sonnet 116 by William Shakespeare

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
 
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wand’ring bark,
Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken.
 
Love’s not Time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle’s compass come;
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom:
 
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.
 
*****************************************
 
Love one another by Khalil Gibran
 

Love one another, but make not a bond of love
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
Fill each other's cup, but drink not from one cup.
Give one another of your bread, but eat not from the same loaf.
Sing and dance together and be joyous,
but let each one of you be alone,
Even as the strings of a lute are alone
though they quiver with the same music.
Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping;
For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.
And stand together yet not too near together;
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow.

Being One by Z. Deacon Blue
 
I want you
to eat you
to dine on every part of you
taste you like candy
swallow you like honey
bathing myself in your juices
your tastes
your smells
touching the surfaces of your body
reading you as Braille
with my fingers
my tongue
engulfing every bit of your essence
giving you every bit of mine
until we are lost
high
unable to discern one from the other
unwilling to care if it is I who touch you
or you who touch me
one being
one soul
one kiss begins it all
