The Proverb Poem of Love

The Proverb Poem of Love

A Poem by RHEA CROSLEY
"

A comparison of shallow sensual desire verses love done as a poetic proverb.

"

I have been to day where love abides
it is here where distraction hides.

A wedding oh so fine
That will stand the test of time.

This is the place where focus is intent
Where the one loved is heaven sent.

It is not a place of malcontent.
Nor is it a position that is intolerant.

It is a place where one sees what is best.
It is where goodness and light are present.

There is a wonderful bending of time,
a spontaneous blending of the divine.

Where love lavishes over one and then the other.
Like the blending of one stream completely to another.

It is this love that leads to a unison of body soul and spirit.
A place of no shameful remorse but of golden peace to those who enter it.

Sex without love is like a bird without wings in a dark night.
It flutters and bangs around but never takes flight.

Sex with love gives instead of takes.
Love with sex does not need to fake.


For sex and desire being alone are brutish beast that rob the soul and sever.
But true love has a well of life that springs within to be drunk forever.

"Where love lavishes over one and then the other.

What a place to be :) This is a beautiful piece... truly beautiful. It defines love.

I personally think that sex was designed for soulmates... for love. Not to be used and abused as it is, which is why you will not find any erotica writes from me, or if I come close to it, only in the light of love. I feel very strongly about that. That is the place where souls touch, and I don't think it wise to just let any soul touch one's own. But that is my own personal opinion, and I am in no way judging another's point of view, only giving mine. :)

You are very insightful and soulful. I really enjoy reading your work and listening to what you have to say.
Not to mention you're a fabulous writer! :)

Thank you again Rhea! Blessings my friend..

Beautiful and so tastefully done. I love all the couplets but I think the two that
resonated the most with me were these:

".....It is this love that leads to a unison of body soul and spirit.
A place of no shameful remorse but of golden peace to those who enter it.

Sex without love is like a bird without wings in a dark night.
It flutters and bangs around but never takes flight......"

I enjoyed this enlightened piece.

Thank you my friend..

I agree with Dani C, and with the lesson in your words! I think it's pretty clear.
All the verses are lovely, though I feel these four lines; the rhyme, the logic - brilliant.

Thanks for sharing a refreshing read!

I compltely agree with your thought Sir>Loveless sex is merely using another to scratch an itch selfishly

There's so much truth in your writing, your poem.

It's easy to fall IN love, it's easy to fall OUT of love. But LOVING another person is oh, so different. It's more than emotion, it's being just a part of a whole, needing to give, to share, and yes, to take with willing arms and heart. But that's not physical, or as you put it straight, the sex, it's something far more, it's spiritual, a need that's outside self, wanting to give and share and share some more.

Oops sorry, went off on a post myself there, but, was wanting to agree with so much of what you've written...

Your final line virtually says it all, ' But true love has a well of life that springs within to be drunk forever.'

A very wise piece with a very well thought out subject! I liked your comparisons and your thoughts and emotions rang true. My only comment (and this is common for me) is that the punctuation could be revised a little; there are many more devices to use than just a few periods and commas; it's a tool to be used with vigor! Well done.
