A Poem by Sean Allen
"

An impossible love story.

"

I needn’t stroke your silken hair
or touch rose petal skin.
The type of love I have for you....
it burns from deep within.

While in my soul the fires rage,
and nothing is consumed.
My spirit wanders aimlessly,
from room to darkened room.

The proper words I cannot say,
to show you my great love.
Yet here I’m staring at your face,
while you look from above.

Still my heart stirs with great desire,
to reach up and touch you.
As these feelings that I’m feeling,
I know they’re in you too.

 

But you will someday think of me,
when this book you have closed.
And I am just a memory....
and not the one you chose.

Alas...
Of all that I have looked up at,
‘tis you I wished I’d known.
For yours is a breathing spirit,
and mine.... I’m just a poem.

With 50+ reviews, I doubt I can tell you anything new or groundbreaking as far as analysis goes, so I'll say that I really do like this poem. I'm a sucker for old fashioned rhyme schemes and rhythm, and not being a visual person, for me the aural sensation of reading a poem is quite often every bit as important as the message conveyed. Saying that, I love the pulse of this piece, and the idea that a poem (whether yours or someone else's) is observing and caring for you in the same way you do it is quite pleasant. I think I may have to reevaluate some poetry after reading this.

Nice write, I look forward to reading more

No that wasn't just a poem. It made me think of C.S. Lewis 'The Four Loves', and the different kinds of love. Thankyou.

to be honest the title " a poem" has attracted me and made me read your poem, i never met till now a poem named poem, all people are looking for titles sometimes for nights and nights, but this poem is just named " a poem" as if it represents simply all poems, i really like it and feel happy to have read it, thank you Sean!!

Sean Allen, this poem is outstanding! Love the rhyme, it feels alittle sad because their love did not make it, but it was beautiful at the same time!!
