    I really like poetry.

    . The meaning is always so set and it's shown in many ways, it's interesting to read and nice to understand and relate to.

    For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.

    For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people. For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry. For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day. For poise, walk with the knowledge you'll never walk alone. We leave you tradition with a future...

    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...

    The poet that died in his poem The poet,

    a fighter and more a lover a lover of hate a hater of love a blind man, who could see the darkness. He was a prisoner of himself, a foreigner in the world he created, In the world he hated, He stopped there before he could ever begin.

    I crave your mouth, your voice,
