I love you,
And would brave anything for you.
Except bees.
I'm allergic to bees.

Front Page Picks
I Thought... By Opal.
Submitted by Angel [no1angel@surfsouth.com]
Angel says "...this was written by my mother when she was only 10 back in 1936." Kirk says this poem is a simply wonderful.
dead stroke By jenn (jennzoo@hotmail.com).
A clever metaphor wrapped around a strong declaration.
Don't Say That By Barbara Halstead.
This poem has a frantic energy, made more frantic by its ambiguity.
Go Forward By Crystevin.
A poem that sould be a song.
there she blows By Misti Velvet Rainwater.
MVR really sets the mark for realism in romantic poetry.
Ritual By z.
A prose description of a beautiful habit.
New world explorationBy z.
A playful, raunchy piece (for j, of course.) This is great.
Pavlovian By Isolde.
Isolde: "Nobel laureate Ivan Pavlov is noted for his pioneer work in the physiology of the heart and the theory of reflexive behavior." Kirk: "Been here, done this, unfortunately."
Dreams vs. Reality By erin.
I think this work has more levels than it title would imply.
A Long Ago Love By heart Song.
Another musical work, and another with a sense of history.
Heart Wings By Isolde, illustrated by Deevaa.
A bit of synergy and multimedia in the form of a poem and a painting. Be sure to check out some of deevaa's other paintings in Heart on Sleeve Corner
Heart on Sleeve Corner
