The Gravity of Love

I can't seem to stop writing poetry or reading poetry. I think it is safe to say I love poetry and I love sharing great poetry with others.

"You cannot blame gravity for falling in love." Albert Einstein


A certain gravity that holds me down,

there is no escape from your tender touch

the universal force of attraction.


From private place to middle of our town,

the power in your eyes can do so much,

a certain gravity that holds me down.


From here below where stars are worn as crowns

the Earth below your feet within my clutch

this universal force of attraction.


These visions of you in your evening gown

and I am feeding you some fresh Penuche,

this universal force of attraction.


You have erased the etchings of my frown

to reach for sky like a game of double dutch

a certain gravity that holds me down

this universal force of attraction.
