SWEET NOTHINGS

Sweet nothings, are music to my ear

Tingling sensations

Just too much to bear

THE WAITING GAME

Who’ll be the first to break the mold

In the waiting game of mind control.

It’s safe if he is unaware,

So act like you don’t have a care

UNRAVEL

Unravel  the skeins

Happiness lies beneath

It’s time to feel

MY ADAM

Still the heart’s content,

All harsh words were never meant

COMPROMISE

At the close of  night

Dreams are black and white

As infatuation dies,

Dawns the grey of compromise

TEMPTATION

The story of Adam and Eve for eternity

The bond is there beneath the apple tree

DESIRE

No words can describe your lover

When other senses take over

LADY OF MORE

All those longings you try to ignore

Missing the touch of the one you adore

All that you crave is what you had before

So keep dreaming, my ‘Lady of More’

POWER OF LOVE

So you use your love

‘Lady of the Hour’

Your box of tools is rich with fervor

Withhold a little, then give a favor

ON LIFE’S KNOCKS

We learn and we grow

What we reap, we sow

Betrayals or no

What is stronger

Love or pride,

The heart or the head?

The price to pay’

Is ineffectual anyway

20

MAGIC

That magic that makes  us glow

The virtual infatuation is in your head

If not reciprocated, then it is dead

22
SHADES OF BLACK AND WHITE by Sevitt Francis - Illustrated by Sevitt Francis - Ourboox.com

TREPIDATION

On your way to meet your lover

Uptight, you’d like to run for cover

In trepidation, pack your case

How to choose which clothes to place

Keeping the image at any cost

The signs of age and what you’ve lost

24

MUSIC FOR THE SOUL

The Pied Piper will lead you astray

“Don’t care” you say

You know, in the end,

There’s a price to pay

AUTUMN

Autumn is nigh with pending doom

As winter draws near, face the gloom

No longer can you live the life

For time will come to say goodbye

28

INSPIRATION

At the height of elation

The source of creativity burns deep in the soul

Love is yet the peak of inspiration

And if it’s gone then recall the sensation

 

30

REGRETS

Armed with righteous wrath

With no thoughts for the aftermath

All that love and all that fervor

Maybe will be gone forever

32

MEMORIES

Collecting memories is

my life’s endeavor

The more there are,

I’ll live forever

When I die ,I’ll leave behind

A faded memory in another’s mind

34

ROMANCE

Young love and shipboard romance

Made their mark and held you entranced

This measuring stick, throughout your life

Has been the cause of endless strife

36

INNER GLOW

In the dark of the night ,

While the bond is still tight

High on that inner glow

You’re afraid to let go

When daylight appears

Just hold back the tears.

For the years go by ,and there’s much to recall,

Strife, anger and hate

Were not worth crying for at all

38

HARMONY

The deafening silence breaks away,

Replaced with thoughts array –

The scent of harmony, a perfumed spray

Return to me my love and stay

40

LADY OF THE HOUR

Who’s to play the waiting game?

Once it’s his and then it’s hers,

Adding spice in all but name

42
SHADES OF BLACK AND WHITE by Sevitt Francis - Illustrated by Sevitt Francis - Ourboox.com

WOMAN IN NATURE

Woman in nature, in spirit and soul

The green and the water will serve as her altar

Woman of nature with love in her heart

Where does life end?

When does it start?

44
SHADES OF BLACK AND WHITE by Sevitt Francis - Illustrated by Sevitt Francis - Ourboox.com

LIFE’S JOURNEY

What you give is what you get,

And the sum of things just tears the soul,

For what it boils down to is

Is there love?

46
SHADES OF BLACK AND WHITE by Sevitt Francis - Illustrated by Sevitt Francis - Ourboox.com

INVISIBLE

Invisible thoughts lurking in the woods

Reflecting emotions and revealing the good

Invisible emotions drowning in the flow

When thoughts surface,

Let the bad go

48

FLEETING JOY

The fleeting joy in moments of caring

The gentle touch, the looks we’re sharing

Creates a world embalmed in time

Of precious minutes, when he is mine

50

“WHAT LIFE HAS BEEN”

Life’s worth living when you’re not aware

Of all the things that bring despair

Inevitably on life’s journey

One can face the loss

Only one that faces strife

Can feel compassion for another’s life

Enthusiasm and passion

No matter what the age

Enflames the heart and stills the rage

52

ESTRANGED

Living the moment when you feel apart

Knowing, in time, you’ll go back to the start

CHERISH

Keep close and nurture what you cherish

Affection, love and caring

Lest they wither and perish

VIBES

Judge by the actions

or judge by declarations

Do you ignore the jibes,

or pick up on the vibes?

And then you realize,

it’s all of the above

58

And let the joy wipe out

the sorrow.

Stronger than words

So hold on to that thought

For just another day

EXPECTATIONS

The other side too has trepidations

If love is there. will he really care

How you look with messy hair?

64

LOVE POEM

Verse and rhyme are just words in text

Some call it love ,

but maybe it’s just momentary passion,

And all that dreaming,

is really out of fashion
