killer whales of all disasters (a love poem)

 

sigh oh sigh
say, “love comes”
so romantic
so abrupt
i feel the intense arrows
hitting my heart and moving me
on the aisle of a wedding banquet

each stride i take
are slow footsteps of a birth
in the act of true love
as east meets west then
the party started

we turn soft whispers into
a big noise like a public display
witnessing to the crowd
and these vows we utter
are the killer whales of
all disasters

    “We turn soft whispers into a big noise like a public display” – this. Right here. Top quality.

    Interesting. I am still pondering the last three lines and wondering what it means. That’s when you know you’ve written a good poem – – when others are sitting there before work trying to figure it out! πŸ™‚

    Very nice and unique:

    “and these vows we utter
    are the killer whales of
    all disasters”

    The last three lines, def have a deep edge, random they may be… but… the real masterful part of this piece, imo

    each stride i take
    are slow footsteps of a birth
    in the act of true love
    as east meets west then
    the party started

    Oh where do I even start with that…? Nicely done.
