Love at the Movies




You  say    I  am  your   lucky  charm
Searching to find me through great lengths 
But  I  found  tenderness  and  strength
I'm  the   lucky  one  in  your  arms  

~0~0

Inside  me  lives an  old  woman 
Pared, sliced and left in bitter wine 
But you catch me, unwrapping twine
Piercing  icy core, my  bowman    

~0~0

There are second chances we take
With our  vows,  a  kiss  renews
Our journey, fresh morning dew
when we say YES, our love remakes 






Posted for Imaginary Garden with Real Toads:   Envelopes and Mary's Mixed Bag - Let's Go to the Movies.   I relax watching romance and comedy films, specially on weekends.   If  the movie makes me cry, its a good movie  :-)   Have a good weekend ~

  2. I love that you've chosen Nicholas Sparks movies for illustration :) You know I love me romantic movies! He sold two new books for movie adaptation so there will be new romantic films for us in the future too :)

    1. The guy knows how to sell and market his books though not all of them are deeply profound. Romance movies, along with children movies and action movies, have its share of audience, like you and me ~

      Thanks for the visit Dez ~

  3. Yes Man wasn't a bad one, and I've given a few of those lovey dovey ones a run. Our love remaking, yes, loving remakes, heck no. They can stuff their actual movie remakes, haha

    1. Yes Man was hilarious with Jim Carey ~

      No, remakes aren't fun
      specially when the plot has run

      His brain went movie making the rhyme scat
      We all have our faults I guess
      Pat is a movie nut I will confess..haha

  4. I think you have done wonders with this form. You have used very interesting rhymes, and the poem itself is very intriguing.

  9. I haven't attempted the envelope form yet, but your poems are full of meaning. I especially love the second one.

  10. I don't mind crying in movies either. I have cried in a few lately. Namely "Bully" and "The Descendants." I love the lines, "When we say YES, our love remakes." YES, YES, YES!

  16. Well executed, Gracious Heaven. I like the last stanza the best.

  17. I like the first and second here best--I think they also have the most pleasant sound--but all are well done to form, and make a tender love poem as well.

  18. Wonderfully done, kiddo. Wow. I love movies that make me cry too:)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Very nice. You accomplished a lot of things in that poem that I couldn't do. You incorporated multiple movie titles, and your tight poem structure is something I can never do with any positive results. Great write.
