Love poems
        Hold me dear tight
       Hold me dear tight                                        
       Hold me dear that                                          
       I may forget life’s futility!    
       Hold me dear tight                                         
       Hold me dear that                                           
       I may feel safe in life’s nest!                          
       Hold me dear tight                                         
       Hold me dear that                                           
       I may feel a sense of frivolity!                       
       Hold me dear tight                                         
       Hold me dear lest                                             
       I should suffer mortality!                                                                                             
       Hold me dear tight                                           
       Hold me dear next                                            
       I may be in heaven!                                           
       Hold me dear tight                                            
       Hold me dear lest                                              
       I fall back in hell!                                                
       Hold me dear tight
       ‘nd blessed be the soul                                          
       who created you and me!

       She
       The day I saw her I was conquered,                           
       The moment I met her my soul was fused                          
       I never knew, though, mine she was not to be      
       I never knew, though, a victim of fate I was to be.
       I dwelt in heaven with throbbing hopes,
       I reached my goal with racing hops,
       But I was pushed to hell by the paws of fate
       I’ve loved and lost, for ever, her heart!

      Why don’t you come, my dear
       Why don’t you come, my dear                       
       and enfold me in love and passion?               

       My heart is aching to have you for ever        
       to dwell deep in the depth of your recess      
       to revel in that eternal bliss                            
       that everyone longs for.                                 
       Without you life is meaningless                         
       Without you I’m senseless                             
       You, only you, none but you                         
       are everything I see around                            
       I’m your slave ever bound.                            
                                                                              
       If my life has any significance                        
       it’s only in your presence                                         
       when you become my wife                       
       a new meaning comes into my life.                                                                                      
       So why don’t you come, my dear,                 
       and enfold me in love and passion!

       Love! My foot!
       I love you says hubby                                    
       and goes grabby!                                         
       I love you says mummy
       and dreams another!                                    
       Love! My foot!                                            
       Just a tool to loot!                                         
                                                                          
       Until death do us part groans the groom!     
       Until death do us part chimes the bride!          
       Mummy sues hubby on Monday                     
       for bigamy in court.                                           

       Love! My foot!                                               
       It’s not but a slut                                           
       it sucks, saps, and spits                                  
       Love! My foot!

       a reverie?
       at your look
       my eyes flew open
       at your nearness
       my heart raced
       at your smile
       my mind boggled
       at your touch
       my feet leaped   
       at your embrace
       my soul was fused
       is this what
       life is all about?
       Oh if this were only
       not a reverie!
 _________________________________________________________ 
      You betrayed me                                    
       how…how                                 
       oh, how could you?                          
                                                                       
       Didn’t we drink comfort                         
       from each other’s lips?                        
       Didn’t we find solace                            
       in each other’s laps?                              
       Didn’t we draw strength
       in each other’s looks?                                   
       Yet how……..                                        
       how could you?                                    
       It seemed an eternity.                             
                                                                     
       Was that all a make-believe?                 
       Oh how could you?             
 _________________________________________________________ 
       What did I see in her?
       Now what did I?   
     
       She was    
       5’ 4"   
       of biscuit brown
       50 kg probably
       with an aquiline nose
       generous lips
       a gentle smile
       hiding in the thin folds
       that met at the corner.
                 
       I looked
       she beckoned
       next moment
       I was beside her
       our sweaty palms
       in one another
       we walked.
                                                                          
       Oh what lies!                                     
       What sweet lies!  
       the ones live
       and let live!
