I need a poem
That will lift me up
Way up to the sky
Chocolates won't do it
Cookies can't compete
Feed my stomach
With food
But my heart
With your poems

Tell me this
Do you think you can take
All that I am
When I’m awake

And I think

If the love lasts
More than the days
You spend in quarantine
I swear
It's true love
Go for it

Else backup
Genre: Observational
Theme: Guru Mantra On Love

I used to read your poems
but lately you don't write
you're silent and aloof
you know that isn't right.
You can't close a door once opened
you can't abolish all your dreams
you're a poet of the heart
mustn't fall apart at the seams.
Say what you can in words
they speak the message true
spoken from the heart
the poems will see you through.
A hermit's not your style
a recluse, you are not
never give up writing
of things that you've been taught.
I used to read your poems
I'd read them once again
if you would send them out
(this one's from a poet friend)

To will and to be
Are negative aligned phrases
To what we aspire to be
As been with so many cases

Sometimes we've got to trust
If we're to ever find the one
Trust not wholly on the heart
For it could turn out to be a bad act
But give in slowly to time
Then maybe it would find us
Cause love is not to rush
That would be a minus
Sometime what we seek
It's just right there
When we open the inner eyes
Then we know
It actually found us
