All’s Fair In Love & War

A TRIBUTE TO ALL VETERANS!

Woman: Would you ever let me go?

Man: What makes you say so?

And where would you run off to?

Woman: My belly you begin to touch, 

and as you do you give me a long deep smooch.

Deep down did you know how I felt?

It was my heart you did melt.

You slowly caress my back.

Was I the only thing in your life you did lack?

Softly your hands glide to hold my hips,

and as you do I turn my head to kiss your lips.

Within my heart is a strong desire.

It burns like fiery hot fire.

There is no way that it would expire.

Because you are the one I inspire.

When you had a frown,

I did my best to turn it upside down.

In my mind you cast a radiant light. 

And it was so bright that it never faded at night.

As you plan to make your next battle move.

Know that you are the one I would love. 

Upon our first kiss, you ignite a passion.

A passion for me to show you nothing but compassion. 

Man: Your love for me is skin deep. 

But for now please sleep.

You are the one in my dreams I shall keep. 

Woman: Is what I feel love, lust, temptation, or true pure desire?

Man: You look like a wonderful woman deprived of pleasure.

And so I shall give it to you beyond all measure.

Woman: As I began to walk, all I ever wanted was to hear you talk. 

From behind you came to give me a hug causing me to gasp. 

When there was no one beside me, we both

came together for a close intimate embrace. 

Promise me something, rebuild God’s House as if it were your house. 

In order to be a true Christian, you must live life as though you never sinned. 

Man: Blood is red,

Veins are blue, 

Your sins washed white as snow,

So, what are you?

The American flag because both men and women died for the freedom of our nation. 

*The 13 stripes represent the 13 colonies.

    What a beautiful poem did you write that yourself? That was very meaningful. In the beginning I assumed that it was about the love between a man and a woman but in the end it turned out to be the meaning of our great country. I am glad you clarified the meaning of each holiday, I have no idea all I know that it is about veterans. Also I did not know that there is an Armed Forces day. I think I am not aware of it because it is on Saturday… Thank you fir sharing this wonderful poem 🙂

      Dear Nuttanee,

      Thank you for your comment, yes I did write that myself. I just felt at times there is too much negative things happening in our country that no one says anything good about it or even is bold enough to say so and represent it. I would like to believe that there is some good in each person, and that someone should nominate them or be their voice if words don’t come out easy for them. Veteran related holidays really had been a long interest of mine and I hope that it is well preserved for generations to come and look back and say thanks to veterans I can live a more freer and independent life in our country. 

      Please feel free to drop by my website anytime you wish.

      May God Bless You!

      Wishing you all the best with your online success above and beyond the horizon,

    It’s long since I read a poem that has a perfect rhyme scheme and deep rooted emotions. One may think it’s a communication between a man and a woman but it isn’t really true.. The woman in this picture is the American flag personified to bring to light the sacrifices the armed forces did and are doing to protect the country. Putting the conversation in poetic lines makes it magical and a worthy read.. 

    I respect the war veterans 100% because their sacrifices for their father land are immeasurable and second to none.

      Dear Sammynathaniels,

      Nope, I didn’t intend for it to be about a man and woman, for some, they may interpret it as Adam talking to his wife Eve when they had to endure so much after the Fall of Sin and still stick together when they had to exit the beautiful paradise God had for them, the Garden of Eden. It seemed like a war between heaven and Earth really at that moment. The spiritual realm versus the worldly realm representing sin and darkness. 

      I often wondered how they lived there with no means of electricity or the sorts of comforts we enjoy today. How could they have lived, the 1st human beings that helped start the rest of the vast human being race of humankind. Even though Adam and Eve had fought against each other, soon enough they realized that they need each other to survive. One to protect the children and the other to fight off invaders from hurting them. 

      Everything was freely given by the Lord for Adam and Eve, they had no bills to pay except 

      I at times picture my mom and dad as being like an Adam and Eve also. When they prepare the soil and other things to grow out of the ground. Why, I even call the Apple the Forbidden Fruit as well. 

      I always love the veterans, they get to fly around in helicopters and have great equipment to play with and test. However, I am saddened by the fact they are mistreated and are so far away from family/friends to be in a different country. I support the veterans, I admire them for their courage to not let anything hinder them from protecting others in any needs necessarily.

      Dear Peace,

      Thank you so much for your Comment, I really appreciate it. Yes, God and Poetry are my 2 biggest loves as well as drawing too. I never knew that poetry could either impress someone or convey the emotions with the choice of words either. For a time I thought I was struck with a boredom topic of interest as in being a writer and here you are praising or rather encouraging me to keep on with this sudden hidden talent of displaying that God’s love is big enough for anyone really. I did try to enter in online writing competitions or art drawing competitions too just for the fun of it and if it strikes someone to be in complete awe, than my job has served its purpose well.

      May God Bless You as well.

      Wishing you all the best with your online success above and beyond the horizon,
