A Poem by jacob erin-cilberto

sequels supposed


fictional characters
my lovers
figments of imagination
felt so real,
touched skin, i am sure
or maybe touched mind
devised
your eyes
the deep brown orbs
floating into my heart

is there a true/false
logic to love
or is empathy a chapter
unwritten in the real world

are emotional plots
full of embedded roses
or just the thorns that adorn
stemming the tide of feelings
from page to page
until only the epilogue
shows hint of breath

and lasting love is merely
a phrase used on the novel's sleeve
to promote
the next book

always to be
the next book.

Sometimes it feels as if we're always waiting for the next one. Maybe, should linger longer with the first ...

I don't believe there is ever a sequel to love or passion. All of it's real...even when you can't touch it. I'm in love with this poem, there is NO doubt about it!

You are being too logical my friend. Lasting love is a writer plot and real life fantasy. I did enjoy the poetry Jacob. Thank you for sharing the outstanding poetry my friend.

You are welcome Jacob.
Sequels are never as good as the original.in most cases.all you're doing is trying to do remake what you had the first time
