Poem Commentary

if you've ever enjoyed love's energy and ride .....then you'll love this

WHY I LOVE HIM

Why i love him the best .

It's in the scent of his spirit 

the sound of his joy

it's the taste of his masculinity 

and the size of his intelligence

it's the feel of his imagination 

during those rainy days 

It's the strength of his foundation

the size of his family structure 

That leaves me anticipating marriage 

It's the safe & sound protection he provides for me 

that leaves me on solid ground 

spiritual grounding that lifts my spirit high 

it's his sensual aura that takes me on a exciting ride 

It's why i love him so much .

TTTTTTTTTTTTtthhhhhhhhhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnnnnkkkkkk youuuuu I-L-O-V-E-U-U-U...i appreciate you feedback means the world to me from a great poet ....

Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
