Love is by Chance, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Love is by Chance

Love is by Chance

The sun slides silently upon the sea
Touching it with a kiss so tenderly
Yet causing great excitement in the sky
The clouds are blushing in orange and red
It is now time to put this day to bed

The sun now yields to the glow of the moon
Which creates a golden path to the shore
Calling me to a land of many dreams
My eyes get heavy as outward I look
This heart favoring dreams over a book

The path took me past the loves of my life
Seeing many joys each did bring to me
But like the sun of the day, each did end
For me is love to be ephemeral
While for some others it is eternal

If love be made of human emotions
Does a special combination exist
That pairs lovers for an eternity
Not so sure I would desire it to be
It would be fostering pre-destiny

The totality of life is a chance
With no guarantee there will be romance

Dare Not Open My Eyes, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Dare Not Open My Eyes

 

Dared Not Open My Eyes

The morning mystic maze of memories
Float as fog softly across calm waters
In the recesses of my laggard mind
Taking a form of silent silhouettes

There was me, there was she, stepping forward
(Such a rush, I dared not open my eyes)
Into the room, the door closed behind us
I turn to her, she turns to me slowly

I looked into her eyes, she looked in mine
We were frozen for a moment in time
While our hearts were sharing loving feelings
I leaned into her, she leaned into me

Such a rush, I dared not open my eyes
Her static energy fully absorbed
As if I were a naked lightning rod
Causing this burning heart to hesitate

Such a rush, I dared not open my eyes
Grabbing my chest, was it death I was near
For how could being in love cause such pain
Was this just a dream or a memory?

 

The Loving Cup, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

The Loving Cup

The Loving Cup, Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1867)

The Loving Cup

From her loving cup do I gladly drink.
Contents requires no aphrodisiac.
Single taste takes me to euphoric brink.
A drop on my tongue there’s no turning back.

Fragrance in the cup devoids my senses.
Putty am I in the hand that feeds me,
Yet a feeling that there are no fences,
No darting impulse this amour to flee.

Between both hands holding her loving cup,
As insurance it will not get away.
For hour upon hour will wantonly sup.
Desire be no reason to ever stray.

To infinity she be my Hebe,
Her cup as the moon has captured this sea.

To You I Pray, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

To You I Pray

To You I Pray

My heavenly Father to you I pray
Giving You thanks for this wonderful day
Filled with much happiness but almost done
Time to reflect on your begotten Son
I humbly ask that You make me worthy
Of pain He willingly suffered for me
May His words fervently be my life’s guide
And the Holy Spirit remain inside
Let holy His name be upon my lip
At the moment that into sleep I slip

Mighty is Our Love, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Mighty is Our Love

Mighty is Our Love

The old oak tree that I daily pass
Has stood there so majestically
What appears to be eternity

For decades hasn’t had a canopy
Of green turning to gold in the fall
Yet the old oak remains straight and tall

Buffeted by wicked wind and cold
Which has stripped it of its wrinkled bark
Now but a perch for the meadowlark

The tree is a symbol of our love
Though we will become part of the past
Our mighty love shall forever last

Love-fire that Burns Inside My Head, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Love-fire Inside My Head

Love-fire that Burns Inside My Head

There’s a love-fire that burns inside my head
Trespassing on every thought that passes
My mind is now a tangled ball of yarn
Only able to weave pictures of you

How will I be able to stay alive
Only thoughts of you I cannot survive
Confusion festers from lack of answers
For it’s unknown how you really feel

So much laughter in the moments we share
But when I get to close you run away
Taking with you my weakened tortured heart
Leaving me so helpless on life support

Should final darkness fill my mind this night
Will go willingly, a smile on my face
Knowing that I had found a special love
Though it was never given in return

Eyes, the Pathway to the Heart, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Eyes the Pathway to the Heart

Eyes, the Pathway to the Heart

Love to study your eyes in the day light
Twinkling coded messages that they send
Even you cannot keep them from my sight
Like crystal balls the future they portend

Does not matter that your eyes are sky blue
Only determined by what’s felt inside
Looking at you can see your heart be true
For your eyes glow when fully opened wide

Come very close and look into my eyes
Follow the path deeply into my heart
Can you now see that it wears no disguise
Can you see a reason we’d ever part

In loving the eyes have so much to say
A special look many hearts they can sway
