terms of endearment

terms of endearment

A Poem by jacob erin-cilberto


terms of endearment

 

 

impaired agenda

lips' interference

protracted time entwined

 

signing affidavits of good intention

but retention difficult

in your embrace

 

passion's lawsuit ensues

but being a happily framed victim

i would do years for you

We want to give it and do it all for love, but in order to do so, the object of our affection has to want us to do that. Good intentions mean nothing if the emotions are not there from both sides. Great metaphor. Lydi**

Love is boundless and makes us do some pretty stupid things. Oh well it's all alright if we get the girl.

Jacob sometimes your poems are too deep for my mind to grasp but that's my problem not yours lol

Oh ok thanks
Affidavits regardless, we don't mind getting sued and sentenced in love...no, we'd keenly pay the price for just one touch, one look. A great poem from you Mr. Jacob.

Sounds like a one way amicable divorce and that only leaves the conciliatory party vulnerable. Another thinker here Jacob as one struggles with the concepts you interweave in this one.
