“The Ultimate”

This thing called love is craziness
of the heart's confusion,
in it. . . wonderful. . . without, agony.


Believe its undaunting task,
lose it. . .  misery,
romance of passionate intimacy.


Yet it is our need to survive,
to make disappear
the loneliness of the world's despair.


To care. . . to be true in love
is to be human,
to shed loving tears of unbridled joy,


or to taste the bitter seed
of a broken heart,
as you wonder what mistake you made. . . .


to lose the ultimate prize of humanity.

I have been writing poetry for 44 years. I began writing poetry when I was 15 years old and to this date I have written over 16,000 poems. I have had poems published in The San Fernando Journal, The Rag Mag, WYRD, The Cultural Reverence(e-magazine) and in Kiiroo(e-magazine), Mobius and the World Peace Anthology. I have over 1000 poems published in all. I also have a poetry page on Wix.com entitled anemotionaljourney.com. I also have written a Science Fiction/Fantasy novel entitled "The Blue Sphere" and I am currently working on three other books at the present time. The first is entitled "The Angel and the Witches, the second is "Once Upon A Halloween" and the third is "The Devil's Playground".
