My Love For You...




My love for you is

As simple as a perfect line

And as labyrinthine

As the most complex of mazes

My love for you is

As gentle as the dragonfly's wing

Upon summers stilled waters

And as tempestuous

As the most outrageous storm at sea

My love for you is

As innocent as a newborn's first breath

And as debauched

As the most industrious of sinners

My love for you

Encompasses everything

And devours all

My love for you

Is forever binding

My love for you

Is my nemesis

  1. Brilliant stuff Lynn. I'll think of this as I clean the sink and empty the bins and it'll put a smile on my face - I hope! You are so good at poetry. I haven't ever felt competent at it so it's good to read yours!
