Bitter Sweet Love

Poem By Grant Howard Bunce

I breathe a heavy sigh lost in my thoughts of you, I look out the window ignoring birds who bill and coo.
I forget to breathe nothing else matters when I'm thinking of you.

This madness that i live every day, you're so close I could almost touch you.
Though not far away, i still can't say, words of love so desperately true.

I live in an open prison, there are no bars to hold me each day, and yet I'm trapped by fear and rejection, thinking you'll say go away.

Hold me in your arms, and never let me go, take me on wings up high so we can look at the birds below.

I feel your hot breath upon my neck, it electrifies my spine and makes me a nervous wreck until i finally loose my mind.

We haven't said a word we have only looked into each other's mind, a simple touch, a caress enjoyed over a glass of wine.

Released from my prison you've thrown away the key, but there's a chain that will always remain connecting you to me.

So now all the breaths I take are deep and without any stress, we sit in a chair, I'm stroking your hair unbuttoning your dress.

As we sail the sea of love and maybe be battered by loves stormy sea, we will make it to paradise, if you stand at the helm with me.

Man judges man, tells him his poem is not very good.
Says it disappoints him, look at me I'm really good!

Who Is Man Really?

Ebbing tides remove the footprints we leave in our lives.

Lapping waters rearranging the sand ready for the next players to enter.

Happy Apples

Apples sit up in the apple trees, bumping together in the breeze,
Rosie cheeks in the warm suns light, huddled together on a cold dark night.

Singing songs when no one can hear with the blackbirds or a passing deer.

The Moon And It's Spoon.

The moon drags the sea about,
and makes the tides come in and out.
The man up there in the moon,
stirs up the sea with a long spoon.

Our Friend Morpheus

Sleep has arrived, morpheus is calling, pulling me away,
too many worries crowd my mind and force me to stay.

Eventually he takes my hand, powerless i go in silence,
