Passion Pleas(e): Poems with no ribbons, unrequited offspring of my love.
Acknowledging the one who keeps me relevant, because I'm nothing alone.
Faint Memory  [E]
A rose pressed in a book is used to help remember True beauty and love that could not be.
by Brian K Compton

Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Life has taught us that love does not consist of gazing at each other,
but in looking outward together in the same direction.

Recapturing some of the more passionate poems of love's ups and downs with links to some other romantic works from my portfolio.

A Slower Return  [E]
Make the most of each moment...before it's gone.
by Brian K Compton


Such Longing  [E]
Just a little ditty I penned in need of the reader's attention.
by Brian K Compton

Be My Eyes  [E]
When the reader completes the writer's vision with much needed love.

When We Are Old And These Rejoicing Veins
Edna St. Vincent Millay

When we are old and these rejoicing veins
Are frosty channels to a muted stream,
And out of all our burning their remains
No feeblest spark to fire us, even in dream,
This be our solace: that it was not said
When we were young and warm and in our prime,
Upon our couch we lay as lie the dead,
Sleeping away the unreturning time.
O sweet, O heavy-lidded, O my love,
When morning strikes her spear upon the land,
And we must rise and arm us and reprove
The insolent daylight with a steady hand,
Be not discountenanced if the knowing know
We rose from rapture but an hour ago.
