I’ve decided to change up the approach to my Fly Poetry section today. Instead of featuring a traditional poem, I wanted to post the lyrics to a song that me to reads like beautiful poetry (Not to mention the fact that it now has a very special meaning to me.)
I believe in love … always have, always will. So when I’m moved to write about the highs and lows that love brings, I do it in hopes that it will in turn inspire others to do the same. A piece that I wrote entitled, “You’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone,” triggered a very poignant response from an extremely talented writer that I wanted to share.
Frustration. Confusion. Loneliness. Hurt. Any of these sound familiar? They have all met us at some point on our journey to finding a fulfilling love. One of our resident fly poet’s CeCe has captured the rawness of that emotion today, expressing the feelings we had long since hoped to articulate. Enjoy.
Here’s a video that I thought the group would enjoy. Equal parts funny and real, it’s good to hear a dude talk about the type of love the he wants in his life. I know that I encourage this type of behavior on the regular, so to see it in action … well, it’s good stuff.
One of my favorite poets just blessed me with a new piece that I had to share. For men (myself included), the real challenge with dating is rarely the approach … instead, it’s the execution once we win her heart. Do we truly know how to be “the man,” and be that anchor within a relationship?
I’ve said it once, and I’ll continue to say it. There’s no better way to get my motor running than meeting a woman capable of expressing herself to me. Now I’m not talking about the “I love you … I’m mad at you … why won’t you talk to me” type of stereotypical expression that most men (perhaps unfairly) have come to expect from women.
Ahhh…..the beautiful fragrance of self expression—there’s nothing like it; nothing more enticing; and certainly nothing more satisfying than a woman poignantly expressing herself to me. So you can imagine that I was immediately drawn to the following piece as soon as I read it. I might need to find her…
Here’s a little afternoon Fly Poetry to help you digest your lunch. Feel free to send this to your significant other and act like they inspired this. But wait … make sure they don’t read my site as well before you do it.
This is for someone who’s always there for me … This is for someone tough, honest and true … This is for someone who is amazing and exceptional … This is for someone who always pulls through.
