 Romantic Notions By Ivy Rose      138101 Poems Read

I do not love you as if you were a rose of delicate pink
nor a sharp arrow of  a Mum's crimson passion:
I love you only as one who keeps secrets of love
hidden beneath layers of soul and rows of heart.

I love you as if each flower that is allowed to bloom
keeps  the true beauty of itself hidden within;
yet allows the fragrance of its love to rise upward
towards the Earth to fill our bodies with its aroma.

I love you without understanding how or why,
I love you instantaneously without thought,
I love you like this because I must always;
for in this form I am not me and you are not you
except as your heart becomes emblazoned into mine,
except as our bodies are tangled together as one.

(This was written for a contest with a Pablo Neruda sonnet as my inspiration)
