Poetry Challenge #27: Forced Entry

trees knowledge

Your
forced
entry
leaks
into
my heart.

I’m more
accustomed
to
tracing
desire
on
paper.

I fell
in
love
with
your story.

Not
your
body.

Is
there
a
place
to
place
my
body
beside
you?

I’m
Undecided.

Your
tale
is
my
souvenir.

Can we
leave it
at
that?

Not try
to extend
the franchise
on our
love.

Be more or less to each other.

    Forced Entry made me proud of your poetry, real first class poem but a little sad about its content being more or less is a living in a parallel universe and that’s a bit difficult but not impossible to achieve love e

    This delivery was great for the content of the poem. Love the “i fell in love with your story, not your body” I may borrow that line

    I see the feather in the tree, unforced, gentled by the breeze, touched by the love that wrapped its quill. never have i heard the question so simply asked and beautiful and brave. If our hearts meet, not yours and mine but any we are together, walking lying, loving together in a larger body.
    nice poem,

    Alex

    This is wonderful. This conflict of perspective is there so often in attraction. But, I love how this is worded. Wishing you all the best at your exhibition (never received the details I suppose you got busy). Anyway, break a leg, as they say. ;)
