La Jemme Poetry

You feel the stone beneath your back, it’s hard.

Fall apart, lie ontop of it, and groan.

Felt in your deep bones, the cold wind it mares,

The tension starts drifting in and out, moans.

Unfortunate we’re far apart.

Our minds impart, shattered haste.

Playing games wait, we sin for heart.

Love in us cannot sate.

While time flies by, you wonder berate.

Have some patience; rumours arise.

Do not despise our love it waits,

Us to but lose; we’ll surprise.

Lazily we move, we’ll time again prove,

Block demon’s soft soothe, a lie of our groove.

No demon guards love; God, love, he approves.

The kind that’s grown, realized with heart.

Love that is smart, patient, kind, never departs.

Where your whole heart is honest, love’s hard.

Dreams alight us both; we’re a work of art.

  1. Amanda, a beautiful poem. I don’t know if my interpretation is correct, but the line that the poem seems to circle around happens to be my favorite, “Where your whole heart is honest, love’s hard.” So true, love is hard, even when we think we’re prepared for the ups and downs of all sorts of distractions, I don’t think we always are. Wonderful ending, “Dreams alight us both; we’re a work of art”, lovely. This reminds me that we’re all a work in progress. Please enjoy your evening, have a terrific Sunday, and take good care. ~ Mia 🙂 ❤

    1. Hey Miya,

      You are very good at understanding my poems and me as well. Yes, love is hard, always needs nurturing and effort, compromise. I’m happy you liked the last line. For me art does not have to be perfect as some artists are able to do. Art is fluid and vivid, and mistakes often necessary, to paint over with the right mix of colours. Such is relationships. Thank you Mia 🙂

      1. You’re welcome Amanda. I like your thoughts about art and relationships, “fluid and vivid, and mistakes often necessary, to paint over with the right mix of colours.” I’m a huge fan of the imperfect, I often think that’s where perfection hides. 🙂

        P.S. Congratulations on being published on the Look Around blog.
