We speak in sonnets
Our hands the couplets
And amid the dark we compose
These rhythmic stanzas
Because at some point
We stopped making love
And started making poetry
We Stopped Making Love
We speak in sonnets
Utterly beautiful! 👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼
Sensual and brilliant! Clever use of language too
Wowzer .. brilliant mind. You raising the bar around here, Benjamin!!
Yes! Clever… I like it!!
Beautiful poem Benjamin! Poetry is a more honest appreciation and expression of love and life. Beautifully expressed! 🙌
That’s right. Sounds like the start of a philosophy of poetry. A very good starting point you’ve created to define it. Thanks for sharing your thoughtful thoughts as always!
You’re most welcome.
I loved this 🖤
Speaking to each other in poetry is like mental love making in a way…😁. A piece of great work Benjamin!
You’re right: Intellectual stimulation is where it all begins. “Mental lovemaking” is a cool idea. Thanks.
I am sorry I missed your name there, Bejamin 🙂
No worries 🙂 And you had my name correctly the first time!
Oh! that makes me feel better, but your profile is bejamin4. Never mind, will start using Benjamin 🙂
Yeah, it’s just the profile name from when I made it years ago. But I’m definitely just Benjamin. Bejamin is an old nickname, though, from when I was a kid.
Ah, makes sense. I love that you used your childhood nickname; a connection to your past, your innocence. 🙂
Ben, what a beautifully crafted image of what love can be like. Poetry in motion as they say 👏
Thanks for that!
Love the metaphors! Always on point! The last line is perfect 🙌
Big thanks! 🙂
Love the passion!
Thanks! Glad you could relate to this!
Love this. It did not go where the title lead me to believe. Wonderful write!
Thanks! I was hoping the title would the key to the piece, a kind of pull in. Thanks again! Enjoy your Monday!
