Love Me Not

Love Me Not

A Poem by KWP

observation of seconds, minutes, 

hours clicking by, I disentangle 

days greet me now with a welcome 

seeing, feeling, bathing through each 

I become part of them 


weeks, months, years spent 

thinking only of what may have been 

like watching the ocean waves 

break in, but never once immersing 

precious moments lost

never to be retrieved again 


participation with seconds minutes hours, has

lead to days, galavanting in life


in these moments, I no longer lose thought

Immersion - bobbing, swimming, surfing, crashing with every break

the oceans pulse, my pulse 

salty water burning eyes 

laughter spills 

every direction


I do not dare 

dwindle away one more petal of

love me nots 

participation here now

is all there is

Well done. Well written.

Some of your work lacks focus, this one is well executed from top to bottom.

We should make out later.

All we can do is live in the now and enjoy every part of it. The last stanza really pulls the poem together!

It is so true how each minute spent with loves should be well spent! Life is way too short; we never know when their time or our time to die may happen! Well penned!

Those removing of petal, can leave us disappointed my dear friend.
"I do not dare
dwindle away one more petal of
love me nots
participation here now
is all there is"
I liked the above lines and I wondered also. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry and your thoughts.

We must appreciate every moment with a loved one, even the little ones for there may come a time when memories of them aremay be all we got to keep us company.

Can only add what I feel that - the emotions here are both magical and realistic: . glorious wonder wed to regretful acceptance. Seems sadness has absorbed the laughter shared, that the two are meant to remain a contented finale? Many thanks, you never fail to share hints of how and why . ..

I do not dare
dwindle away one more petal of
love me nots
participation here now
is all there is

reminds me of the old saying "He loves me, he loves me not"
This is really good, a most enjoyable read here.
Love this, creative and wonderful
