By Your Side

There are pieces of my heart littered in your poetry
You free me from agony
To me your soul is candy
Sweetened, darkened and tempting

I love you through weal and woe
All the highs and low
Wondering how deep the shallows go
And drowning in moments when I know

Your voice makes the sea rise
I’m lost in the swell of your blue eyes
I’m clinging on to your tide
Or maybe destiny is by your side

  1. I considered naming the poem Weal and Woe but felt it gave away the surprise. I like using words I’ve never used before and I recently learned of it myself. 😊

  2. I’m always looking up synonyms and antonyms lol but I love a good dictionary or thesaurus. I like to keep my works somewhat interesting lol. There’s so much to language and so many words I still don’t know. So I like learning unpopular words. And then sharing the knowledge lol 😊. Sometimes I learn new words from watching movies and other times it’s from having my nose in books. In this particular case I was looking up synonyms. And then of course, I like my poems to have a theme. And rhyme. *sigh* so many rules but I use punctuation in moderation for my foreign readers (it translates better without) but there’s a sense of freedom for not having to use it and I can focus on the subject and rhyme. 😊

  3. You certainly have the right technique then! I only really thought to reach for the thesaurus more recently (in the last 12 months) but it certainly does help. Especially when rhyming! πŸ™‚ I can remember going through the dictionary as a 15/16 year old looking for interesting and unusual words to use in poems. Those poems are absolutely nuts and make no sense looking back but it was a useful formative experience never the less.
