Love Poem to Free Association This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
A pencil in hand, I try to discuss the differing uses of Ser and Estar
But you tease me,
throw the paper in my face,
Then show me how much more
the world can be.

You’re so much fun to be around,
Because you don’t follow the normal progression
of thought,
Instead, preferring to choose a different path,
You amble along at the speed of light,
pulling me with you
away from orthodoxy, the straight-line
philosophy
and into unbelievable, all over the map.

Though some may stare in disapproval
at our tangential state of being,
Every night I say a silent thank you to
Freud –
Because of him, I’ve got a name
And a method to this brilliant madness.

You conduct my thoughts in a whirlwind,
and make simple existence a fantastical
dream,
An unbearable yet breathtaking venture
into everything that catches
our sparkling eyes.

A lot of specialists claim that personal loans help people to live the way they want, because they can feel free to buy necessary stuff. Moreover, banks give sba loan for all people.

i really like this poem. im kinda new here (just created an account) and just finished 1 poem. in my language class, we had to share, and the poem that i put on here, was the one i shared. i was sooo nervous. espically because the poem i wrote was about a boy, even better, he was in the room, EVEN more better, stting next to me... i was shaking after, which made him ask me if i was ok. still shaking now..... is this common? lol

The Night Was Made For Romance

The night was made for romance.
In the night our two hearts dance.
Under the stars our lips touch.
In the garden your embrace means so much.

The night was made for love.
Our hearts cooing like a white dove.
Your eyes sparkling like diamonds so white.
I love you darling with all my might.

The night was made for caring and trust.
And darling, God made this night for us.

Our Love

As long as there is love, I will cherish you.

As long as there is life, I will love you.

As long as the stars shine above, I will want you.

As long as there are waves in the ocean, I will need you.

As long as there is heaven above, there will always be our love.
