Amor – Love

couple-readingweb

Laura DiNello – Couple Reading

you and books there
me and books here

is that a connection
can i create one

letters and poems
books and pens
characters more pens

is that a connection
can i invent one

write one
perhaps

then the depression
a loved one suicide
and the reading
and the singing
and the walking

is that a connection
can i rely on one

poems around the globe
we as work of art

Kiss-Edvard-Munch

Edvard Munch – The kiss

love love
is not hurt
love
love love
is not pain
love
love love
can be leaving
love
when it’s the right
thing to do love
when we love
love
love love
we can’t hold back
love
we say it love
aloud and often love
cause we can’t get enough love
love
if you think love
i say love too much
love
you never had love
a love to call yours
love
don’t be selfish love
love pettiness
never pays off love
give your love away

Rudolf von Deutsch – Penelope waiting for Ulysses

so you did it
like I thought you would–

you let me go–

but the one that
never came

was you–

*

metallic silence
became a metallic knife–

cutting me open
with your absence–

*

then it’s just me
and i’ll have to do–

kicking fear away
to be gone like you–

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec – Devotion: the two girlfriends

Cathy, in my wildest dreams
we’re together
like I wanted it to be–

I remember
in front of the camera
our first kiss–

You were laughing
so hard
the photographer almost missed–

After that
all was so easy–
including you
slipping away from me–

*

Cathy, do you remember
the guns
that they pointed at us–

In the darkness
we were safe–
But they found us
and sent us away–

*

Cathy, in my wildest dreams
you kiss me
and still loves me–

Can’t a girl dream?

Amparo Lopez – The lovers

Oh! dearest one
how could you
read me so clear
in your own thoughts–

how could you translate me
when you thought it was
all about you
and you only–

*

your pessimism
showed me love
your existence
gave me peace
& in your lostness
i feel reassured

*

don’t worry
i know what you are
the dear of my broken heart

(not even time will keep us apart)
