Lover's Knot

Lover's Knot

A Poem by Siddartha Beth Pierce

A day without you

apart

brings painful tears to my heart.

 

An evening without you

leaves me

longing to be with you again too.

 

I know not how to say

in words

at times the beautiful joy

you bring to my mind.

 

Your lovely, deep, brown eyes

are so profound

with many thoughts

that abound-

in circular swirls

bringing reverence to me

the respect I have for you

is times trinity.

 

Your touch, your smell

are so fine

divinely opening every

desire I have ever wanted

and are so dear

to me

whether you realize it or not

you have my heart

deeply

tied

in a lover's knot.

Love is the most addictive drug of them all, and it tends to force itself on you when you least expect it.
One look and you're hooked, much like heroin, and the sensations it brings are wonderful, while absence brings on such great pain.

This poem, much like the love mentioned in it, hooked me right off the first stanza - you've managed to capture the exact feeling a person might feel in this situation.
Though it is clearly written from a woman's perspective, I find it to be quite unisex, and most romantic males would feel the exact same thing.
This poem has such a natural flow to it, and it brings along so many emotions, ones anyone could connect to on unimaginable levels.

Great job. :)

Sweet lovers embrace and the scent that lingers on their clothes bringing anew their touch and perhaps their kiss too. I like the lover's knot it provokes so many different things at once yet fitting well at the end as a summation

I love the way your words spiraled and swirled around each other until they became one. As always Sid your poems spliced and braided into my thoughts.

Wonderful to read you again!

Those knots can twist us up also. A beautiful poem. Description and story was very good. Complete poem was excellent. I like how you ended the poem.

I love not only how this expresses love but also admiration and respect and showing why you love them...
I really love this verse...


Your lovely, deep, brown eyes

with many thoughts
that abound-
in circular swirls
bringing reverence to me
the respect I have for you
is times trinity.
