Always & Forever
By SJ Warner

As the heavy door opens, my eyes adjust to the inner gloom
Love rushes through my heart and soul as I see you
Waiting in the centre so patiently
Anticipating my arrival at
Your side
Standing there next to your friend looking so proud, so calm.

Any nerves I have disappear as I begin to make my way down the aisle
Nearing you with every slow, precise step
Dad holds my arm, his pride in his little girl showing on his face.

Finally at your side he places my hand in yours
Our eye meet
Revealing in each others appearance
Each touch, each breath, each carefully spoken promise
Verifying the weight of our love until
Eventually we hear those words and our lips meet
Responding to each other, sealing our vows forever.

c. S.J Warner 2014.

Poetic interpretation of picture & title

Always And Forever
By Mark Davis

I watch the bride and groom
Sadness fill my heart
I am at a ceremony
Of which I should be part
I’ve loved him forever
But he never looked my way
I could never share my feelings
Because it’s only me that’s Gay

He’s hers now always and forever
But if I’d taken just a chance
To hold him in my arms
Coaxed him into a dance
Kissed his manly lips
Run my fingers across his chest
Brought him so much pleasure
Use the skills with which I’m blessed

Now I watch them walk away
So happy so it seems
But she can’t change the fact
He is with me in my dreams
I have him in my bed
Wrapped up with him so tight
Always and forever
Everyone a perfect night

  3. M’lle Sal. Beautifully written. That moment when meters apart, fades to inches into each others lives (((Awhoooo)))

    Sir Mark. Damn fine interpretation, or rather an extension, the sadness, the want and desire, amazing pairing. (((Awhoooo)))

  6. Huge thank you to Mark for including me in this event, it was definitely a challenge but I guess I do have a romantic side after all lol, it was a honour to be asked and I’m truly grateful for the opportunity. Also huge thanks to each and everyone that took the time to read, like, comment and share, I’m humbled by all the wonderful praise.

    Much love,

    I was invited by the wonderful Mark Davis to write a romantic poem for his romance event, thank you again Mark. Here’s what I came up with and Marks interpretation of the picture that I chose to go with. Mark has invited some truly wonderful poetesses to join him for this event and I highly recommend you take the time to read all the other posts.

    Much love,
