If your poem touches at least one person's heart, then it becomes more than a poem
 Feb 16 Brandon Chutuk

We met on a Tuesday,
Wednesday I became a poet
it has been said for ages that a woman
             could lead a man willingly to his demise
a song or a dance; a touch or a glance
              simple gestures could dumbfound the wise
these have always just been strange stories
               tall-tales or faerie-tales, even outright lies
until half a year ago. until the day that I-
                became so very lost within her deep blue eyes
                              
it was just a simple look
                                ...that's all it took              
my heart missed a beat
                                    then.. it shook

and in that moment, I finally did realize
                     how very powerful they can be; a woman's eyes

Foreplay
begins in the mind
and finishes
when she does
You broke my peace,
I broke your heart
we kept breaking each other
until we fell
