A Poem by DrD

When I dare return to the pages of my past

Turning each one with embarrassment and shame

With regret, remorse and self incrimination

I finally come to you

Like purifying balms you came to me

Luring me gently with a smile and touch

To be the best I could lest you be disappointed

To create another page of my indictments

 

You taught me of the simplicity of life

“What do you want to do today?”

“I want to be happy”

And you reduced life itself to its foundation

“It’s something to do”

You taught me about priorities and philosophy

“Worry . . . . if that’s really what you want to do

Or we can go to the lake and count the swans”

 

And like all things, the problems disappeared

The challenges, goals and ambitions melted into folly

And the reasons for all things homogenized into us

And the enchantment of coffee-flavored kisses

On a bright and promising morning

Became our religion, hope, destiny and dream

And it was beautiful then . . . . in a two room flat

In the Alps of a city where love once lived

This was just beautiful and I fell in love with it:) Feeling the love of ones life and the things that you do are so much brighter and better when you share it with the one you love. Another amazing piece written, that should be framed:)

A nice journey described in the poem. Would be good to have a place in the Alps and a lot of free time. Thank you for the excellent poem.

David.. this is an amazing poem. Beautiful imagery.. although the poem feels somewhat solemn, there is still that air of hope about it too. Great job on this one.

Thank you, Lori. You're always welcome here.
Those first few lines grabbed me the most. I liked that you started out with a theme that was seemingly different from so many other poems! It doesn't feel forced, or like love you haven't encountered as you continue, it's very basic, if you remove your vocabulary. It's nice to see that everything can also be stripped back, and worries disappear. That's a good message for a poem
