Free Verse Poem Love Glistens

Free Verse Poem Love Glistens; I am a free spirit and you, a thorned rose.

In, “Free Verse Poem Love Glistens;” I look at a new rosebud as if it is love, fresh and untainted by life, moving in and out of the sun, the rain, the elements of nature. But love isn’t perfect.

And I’ve never known a man who has lived alone for twenty-seven years. Until you. It seems relationships for you are like the swan that flies south for warmer weather. They come and go. Nothing permanent.

It seems, in your loneliness, I found you. Others couldn’t strip empty from your heart. I don’t know what I had then or even now. Maybe I’m the soil where your roots needed grounding. And your thorns I refuse to pluck. I saw the softness of your petals in those blue eyes. Love glistens in your tears. Calm comes from rain and I, like the breeze tease at your existence.

Granted, you and I, are unique. I, a free spirit. You, the thorned rose. I don’t ask of your, fallen petals. I only want to pick them up when they fall. Place them in an open book to dry.
