Lovers consuming Love

A reminder
to pause and shop
for tokens of affection
a redundant expectation ~
    hearts held in a lover’s grip
       hearts that pump passion with each ruby drip

A fiery connection
sparked by a cosmic flame
igniting an attraction
guiding its own fate ~
    lovers pulsating in a current of love ordained
       lovers oblivious to a manufactured date of love manmade

A thump-thump
distinctly two now one
a harmonious duet
echoing into the infinite ~
    travelers who shared a candle in the dark, who now blaze like the sun
       travelers who transcend time and space, sparking stars, soon born

A love exchanging
energy with the stars
cannot be duplicated
on a folded paper card ~
    entwined souls who dance under the Milky Way and play with carefree abandon
       entwined souls who passionately caress and gently protect with an untamed devotion

  a Love like this will not to be found
   frantically searching down
    a picked-through Valentine’s aisle.

  a Love like this thrives in a divine dimension,
   where love is its daily and driving existence.


My loving verse was written for romantic hearts. 💓 I enjoyed writing about a love that is too busy loving to be bothered with a seasonal holiday aisle – two hearts that thrive in the divine, sparking the birth of stars.💕🌟 Thank you for visiting and reading. Be well.💗 Michele

      I love this one so much. ❤️ The words bring love to the forefront and throughout everything. The interconnectedness of love and the place where it is far more powerful than one day a year. I prefer celebrating LOVE every day. Thank you for the beautiful poetry and inspiration. 😊

    I especially like this! Reminds me of fireflies. Looking for that specific light to beacon you.

        The first time I ever saw one, I was camping in the mountains. And right at nightfall I saw a little tiny light floating around. Then I saw more. Little tiny lights floating everywhere! Then the moon came out. An awesome first experience at seeing them.

        I never knew there was a difference between fireflies and lightning bugs. Until that night. Lightning bugs blink. Fireflies don’t. Both are awesome though!

  2. I don’t know which para I like more. It’s fantastic what you penned. I think you can turn your pen to anything.
    This will be an all time favourite of mine. Bless your heart, Lee.
    Every word is deliciously divine.
    I wish you a happy valentine’s dear soul sister friend across the cosmos.. be blessed always. ❤️

    1. Ooooh, I love the idea of turning my pen into anything. A magic wand! Presto! I am meeting Miss Poetess in a warm tropical climate for a cold drink and fiery lines! 😁 I am sincerely grateful for your friendship, connection, and poetic inspiration. 💐 A favorite? Yay!! Guess I should write more love poems. 😄 I did enjoy the process. Happy Valentine’s day to you too. Make homemade cards – avoid those Valentine aisles. I am sure you can come up with a few original words. 😂

      1. Oooh la la , I think this is the umpteenth time I am reading your comment. Almost like I am having a real conversation with you. I mean verbal heheh., cold drink and fiery lines from our feisty little poetess Lee.

        My mind has a poetry blockage. Unable to process the poet’s block .. may I be inspired here please 🌝💖

      2. That is me when you post a poem… I read and read again. Maybe not a verbal conversation, but meaningful and real. 😊 FLP Lee – I like! Being that it is late there, hopefully you are sleeping through your poet’s block and will wake to a mind bursting with ideas and inspiration. If not, maybe a step outside. Your writings about nature are sublime. Or there is the the subject of Valentine’s… 🤔 I know you will quickly move through it and in no time I will see another of your creations land in my notifications.

  3. Wow, what a powerful poem, Michele. This right here,
    “a Love like this thrives in a divine dimension,
    where love is its daily and driving existence,” is is wonderful.
    That is lovely, lovely, lovely. And, just so. ❤️

    1. Ah, yes, I do remember reading this lovely poem,. It’s even more lovely the second read through. What a wonder! 🥰 I love the connections between the two pieces and see them very well, Michele. Infinite and divine! ❤️

  4. I love this powerful writing about what matters, especially during a month when relationships are not only being celebrated but also challenged! Love cannot be put down on paper or given in a bunch of flowers. Love is constant, as your final lines so perfectly express. 🙂 ❤

    1. Wow! Thanks a million, Dawn. For reading sharing your beautiful thoughts. I remember writing that one! I loved writing that one! 💞 I love the sentiment behind it, especially the over commercializing aspect of love. Thanks again!
