I Live for Your Love

Poetry is turning out to be a very cathartic medium, I should do this more often.

Set the Mood

i-live-for-your-love

Your words flow through me,

Like heroin and I'm addicted.

Give me more, more of your praise,

Make me want to fall at your feet in worship.


A game of give, give, give,

To let me take, and take, to take some more.

Offer my heart in return, in earnest,

Smash me to pieces if you see fit.


Oh how I want you, your praise,

Butterflies stir within me at every word.

Let me express in physicality,

My favor of your very existence.


Within me a passion burns,

Throw fuel on this fire.

Throw fuel on it as if life depended upon it,

I'll keep you warm through the cold, dark nights.


Let that warmth radiate deep into your soul,

Cement my being in your very presence.

Let me not be forgotten nor go unseen,

I'll place you on a pedestal for all the world to see.


Let me live for you,

I live for your love.

And should you shatter my heart,

I'll keep yours cradled gently.


Better to be broken by a lover,

Than to have never known such comfort.

Indulging myself in you all,

It never has to end.

Amor Enim Omnia

Don't forget to show others that you love them today. There are many of us who live and thrive upon your love, and we have so much to give in return. You need only embrace a life of love, and you'll soon find yourself surrounded by it.

Give love a chance.

Actually Kyler I borrowed that phrade from Lauryn Hill..but it suits your artful wording fine ...I think

Laurinzoscott from Kanab, Utah on March 23, 2020:

Lol..be my guest Kyler I borrowed it from Lauryn Hill...but it suit your works just fine

Kyler J Falk (author) from Corona, CA on March 23, 2020:

Floetry, hahahaha, I'm so going to steal that for use in conversation! It is too charming not to!

Laurinzoscott from Kanab, Utah on March 23, 2020:

No, I mostly love free-verse; although I dont know what my writing style is...I just know the arrival point; but never the destination...anyways your poem has a "rhythum", and of course I call it 'floetry'

Kyler J Falk (author) from Corona, CA on March 23, 2020:

Thank you, Laurinzo, I often worry that my free-verse poetry won't be received well and comes off as being elementary and pitiable. It is always nice knowing I am my harshest critic.

Laurinzoscott from Kanab, Utah on March 23, 2020:

Kyler I agree that I dont see rhyme...but there is definitely. Rhythum going that catches the "spirit ear"

Kyler J Falk (author) from Corona, CA on March 23, 2020:

Ruby, I'm not sure whether to laugh or be concerned that I cannot find this rhyme you have found in my poem, hahaha! This was written to be a melodramatic, free-verse poem.

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on March 23, 2020:

This is a beautiful poem. Your rhyme is excellent! More Please....

Kyler J Falk (author) from Corona, CA on March 23, 2020:

Thank you, Laurinzo, your warm words of praise mean the world to me! Never stop being such a kindhearted man!

Laurinzoscott from Kanab, Utah on March 23, 2020:

Omg...I e-mailed this to myself...only so I can read it again and again...Wow,

"Let me not be forgotten nor go unseen"

What an incredible weaver of words you are...Kyler; methinks we be your biggest fan...

"Better to be broken by a lover"...the power in words like that had to be lived and bled for...although I dont applaud your pain , thank God you both lived through and its literal expressions feeds us joy...Divine...indeed...divine

Kyler J Falk (author) from Corona, CA on March 23, 2020:

Thank you, Mitara, and I am happy that you grasped the underlying sentiment so well!

Mitara N from South Africa on March 23, 2020:

The love you give is unknown as to how you will receive it in return, very tricky. You give it with the hope it will be well taken care of unconditionally, as you would with others hearts. Some may take advantage of it but the utmost importance is always be true to your heart and the love you give.

Excellent piece, thanks for sharing kyler, i always appreciate and enjoy reading your work

Kyler J Falk (author) from Corona, CA on March 22, 2020:

A very concise compliment Olusegun, thank you.
