Valentine's Recipe

A Poem by Drifter

A poem I wrote earlier this year


Throw in a dash of serendipity

that led me across the world to you.

A sprinkle of Heart’s yearning;

it whispers of deep and tender emotions.

Add a few quarts of lasting passion

to keep our crimson blood from cooling.

An ounce of play, a pinch of teasing;

strengthens the bonds we’re forging.

Next, a pound of understanding

to smooth over what makes us unique.

And another dash of laughter

for when things become too bleak.

Stir it with a kiss, feathery and piercing deep,

because only through this connection

can the recipe of the heart be complete.

This is beautiful. I love how you've concocted a romantic relationship in this poem.
"Add a few quarts of lasting passion to keep our crimson blood from cooling," is a beautiful line with an interesting sentiment. I like that this is one of the bigger measurements. Are you a passionate person, or is that just how you see things?
I also love your diction and use of eloquent vocabulary.
Nice font as well. It gives the poem something extra that I just really liked.
Overall, fantastic job.

The great joy of writing fiction is that you get to play God and not feel bad when you ruin peoples' lives. In stories, all the things we detest in day-to-day existence is acceptable; we want drama, .. more..
