    The Road Not Taken ~Robert Frost~ Two roads

    diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth Then took the other, and just as fair, And having perhaps the better claim, Because it was grassy and wanted...

    This is one of Tyler Knott Gregson's poems.

    He creates powerfully romantic, sensual images that speak to being human, and our desire for romantic love. Beautiful! Place your hands upon me like a big tent preacher and with a whisper heal all that aches inside. Put your lips upon my forehead and glance your eyes to the sky...

    My gut wrenching fantasies tainted with

    sparkling ash. I don't want anyone too close or my life might crash. Fractured heart, deadened mind, I will heal in Good time. My brittle existence held together by prayer. My reality staring at me in the mirror. The world reflecting how I feel. Love is real and doesn't need to...

    Unending Love

    I seemed to have loved you numberless times, in numberless forms... In life afer life, age after age, forvever. My spellbound heart has made and remade the necklace of songs, That you take as a gift, wear around your neck in your many forms, In life after life, in age after age...

    You asked if I could suggest a love poem.

    I though of this one. This is one of my favorites which means a lot to me. Shelley wrote beautifully with a heart which must have been full of passion. Enjoy. ~J Love's Philosophy by Percy Bysshe Shelley The fountains mingle with the river, And the rivers with the ocean...

    Do not fall in love with people like me.

    City sounds is all I've ever known,

    - I was always stuck in one place like a rusted drone, - Of course, I need the city sounds to sleep, - But, they are also there when I sleep not a wink. - Babies cry, and a Cow goes 'moo' but I'm stuck here for eternity until I have the courage to move

    What Is Love?

    Is love found in holding hands? In quiet whispers? In looks shared across a crowded room? Is love shared in notes? In cards? In actions? Is love felt with a quickening pulse? A feeling of loss in her absence? A longing to see but a glimpse of her? Is love heard through...

    The fickle nature of society.

    As were all burning more. Love or pleasure, God or leisure. Doomed or Ascending. Perspective creates one's reality. I want to get ahead of fear, the hell in my head. I'm choosing love instead.

    Alone in the light. Comforted by night.

    One thing is better than nothing. Something decaying as I falter. The haunting feeling of falling. Will I find my place in this world? Weary and wounded I keep on moving. Focusing on that one thing to finally bring me home in my soul.
