IN A CLASS ALL HER OWN

by John Yeo

It was just intellectually incredible

When this super poem came together,

The reaction would surely be inevitable.

My loving thoughts began to be sown.

The first few drafts were absolutely disposable

The meaning cloaked with words so clever 

My mind expressed love with words alone.

A polished accomplishment purely sensual 

An approach to the heart with love forever,

I adore her, she’s in a class all her own.

~

The words make sense, a beautiful parable

Designed from the heart bringing pleasure,

Paying court to a woman in a class of her own.

Our mutual attraction still unbelievable 

Two hearts joined by forces never to sever,

Our lifelines should never again be alone

A super relationship with love conceptual

A single lifeline with words to treasure.

It’s just so intellectually incredible

I adore her, she’s in a class all her own.

Today’s prompt ~THE WEIGHT OF HIS AFFECTIONS

THE WEIGHT OF HIS AFFECTIONS

by John Yeo

Her heart was overwhelmed by his obvious attractions,

Tenderly she loved him and tried hard to understand.

Slowly she was adjusting to the weight of his affections.

~

Realising the depth of her strong romantic reactions,

She did her best to unravel them strand by strand.

Her heart was overwhelmed by his obvious attractions.

~

Her feelings were ignited and inflamed her connections 

Though she slowly began to understand his demand

Slowly she was adjusting to the weight of his affections.

~

She felt dizzy, submerged, moving in many directions 

As if she were permanently living in a dreamland.

Her heart was overwhelmed by his obvious attractions.

~

Her mind desperately searched for obvious distractions 

These strange reactions could have never been planned,

Slowly she was adjusting to the weight of his affections.

~

Her greatest fear that these were simply overreactions

On both sides of the relationship the flames had been fanned.

Her heart was overwhelmed by his obvious attractions.

Slowly she was adjusting to the weight of his affections.
