poet’s corner: I hid my love by John Clare (english poet 1793-1864)

I hid my love when young till I

Couldn’t bear the buzzing of a fly;

I hid my love to my despite

Till I could not bear to look at light;

I dare not gaze upon her face

But left her memory in each place;

Where’er I saw a wild flower lie

I kissed and bade my love goodbye.

Love for a Hand

Two hands lie still, the hairy and the white,
And soon down ladders of reflected light
The sleepers climb in silence. Gradually
They separate on paths of long ago,
Each winding on his arm the unpleasant clew
That leads, live as a nerve, to memory.

But often when too steep her dream descends,
Perhaps to the grotto where her father bends
To pick her up, the husband wakes as though
He had forgotten something in the house.
Motionless he eyes the room that glows
With the little animals of light that prowl

Greatest Love

You bring me laughter when I’m down,
Always there to lift my frown…
You hold me tight when I’m cold,
You’ll stand by me till I grow old…
Loving me like no other,
Gentle and sweet just like a
mother…

Your love is pure forever true,
Inside my heart is a place for you…
The touch of your lips against my
skin,
Softness so smooth brushing along
my chin…
Words of compassion forever sweet,
How ever was I so lucky to have
meet…

My dearest love I hold so dear,
For never do I have to fear…
Honest and truthful in loving me,
Always and forever it is she…
The woman I love and have given
my heart,
To live this life and never depart…

A Lucky Escape

Lucky escape

Our time ran short,
But quite enough,
You put me through,
Unforgivable stuff.

Hindsight is wonderful,
But comes too late,
I wasnt in time,
To save my fate.

It cut me deep,
Right to the core,
My battered heart,
Could take no more.

Of Love Poems

You can’t write a love poem these days, even the poem doesn’t want
it, it wants to be a marching song, an outraged movement, a raving

anthem with bloodstained robes and flesh under its nails, a sunset
that bounces back from the horizon to reclaim its space. We are

inside-out bards, cynicism dripping from our quills, the words to our
sonnets curling their lips in disdain, love somehow staring at itself

Greatest Love

You bring me laughter when I’m down,
Always there to lift my frown…
You hold me tight when I’m cold,
You’ll stand by me till I grow old…
Loving me like no other,
Gentle and sweet just like a
mother…

Your love is pure forever true,
Inside my heart is a place for you…
The touch of your lips against my
skin,
Softness so smooth brushing along
my chin…
Words of compassion forever sweet,
How ever was I so lucky to have
meet…

The Light Of My Life

In the darkness,
I found your light.
When all was hopeless,
your beauty shown bright.

When I thought that I
could love no more.
You touched my heart,
to the very core.

You made me smile,
when I could only frown.
You picked me up
when I was down.

When all was lost
you gave me life.
You brought me joy
instead of strife.

My Saviour

Before you found me
I was alone and lost
you saved me from the cold
that icy winter frost

you protect me from all
you know what to do
you love me for what I am
I feel healed through and through

before you came to me
I was as empty as a shell
But you filled me up
And I want to help you as well

the stars in the sky
those heavenly lights
are nothing compared
to your spirit, so bright

Pain of missing

These days are killing me
These days i have many pain
These days i have to agree
Live without you drive me insane

These weeks i feel lonely
These weeks i have to see
These weeks i have to carry
The pain that lives inside me

These months i have to wait
These months nothing i can do
These months i will be afraid
All i want is, never lose you!

I’m missing you

My heart aches within from missing you,
My lips long for the feel of kissing you,
Right now all I need is to gently touch your skin,
To look into your eyes and see deep within,
Just one warm embrace,
Just to look upon your face,
Just one little touch,
From the one I love so much,
If I could gaze upon your smile,
For just a little while,
To know that you miss me too,
As I’m thinking of you,
To hear the sound of you breathe,
Knowing you’ll never leave,
To see you walk up to me,
Then embrace you tenderly,
To just be with the one who’s sent my heart reeling,
