Love Song

Am I only treasure you can collect by accident
for those rainy days when there’s nothing to do
so you can recollect a time when you were crazy
driving 90 on a 30 stretch, not even slowing down
for speed bumps, you’re a drive by, a killing with no exit.

My eyes light up when it sees your name
I want to sing when I hear your melody
walking through my burning thoroughfare 
lights me up when you do anything.

  1. Such interesting emotions in this poem…almost like feeling you’re being used by someone else…thanks for sharing your poem.

    Thanks for stopping by.


  2. i agree with slpmartin about the emotions felt through.
    i am still working a bit on connecting the two parts
    i love the first stanza, not only for it reminds me my self a long, long time ago, but because of that feeling it shows and in return evokes in me.

    Yeah I think the second stanza is a whole new poem. Thanks for reading.


  3. the two stanzas def have a different feel and energy but i can’t decide which one i like better — the stinging hurt or the deep passion. i really like the second to last line. pretty.

    Thank you Lissa.
