All Man.....

All Man.....

A Poem by Yellow Butterfly


Darkness creeps in eclipsing deep thoughts

Obscuring any sense of rationalism

Locked in a battle of wills

Two halves from the

One Heart

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

                                                    ~

                                                     Her:

                                                   “I need you”

                                              "I care for you"

                                                   "I don't need you"

"I am empty without you"

I can't breathe without you"

I am lost without you"

'I want to trust you"

"I won't hurt you"

                                            "I miss you"

~

        

~

Him:

"I want you"

"I'll call you"

“I want to trust you”

“I can’t be with you”

"I can't commit to you"

"I'll do anything for you"

"I will look after you"

“I'll cook for you”

"I care for you"

"I need you " 

~

Her:

"I have never stopped..........."


Him:

"I know"


~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Take from him all that he is

Don’t take from him

all that he is not

For this is he,

all mercurial,

All Man

~

Very unique poem with a unique formatting. Some wonderful lines to quote and enjoy in a romantic setting. You write compellingly and blissfully.

The mind is powerful, the heart is powerful and love is powerful, but when those three intertwine there's a force that supernaturally powerful. When it comes to that feeling of emotional love, everything can be blinding like what's good for us or what's bad. It is truly powerful and can be uncontrollable. this is very great powerful read here and I can feel your words as I read it and as always keep writing fellow writer.

Love is never a simple straight line it is swirls and curves in many colors and directions. We are all human and have our flaws. We all can be mercurial at times and misguided.

Love is love it has no reason or logic it happens and we do the best we can when it is real.

That's what love can be. A series of contradictions. There is nothing logical about falling in love. A passionate and heartfelt write YB.

You are welcome :)
so deep, so filled with passion. no, matters of the heart are not rational. flesh against reason - which will win out? you really pulled out all the stops on this. lots of back and forth hesitation and changing going on. that's certainly how it can feel. total commitment should not be entered into lightly but sometimes love throws us right in.

great lines -
