love poem, sensual poem, spoken word, superlative poem


I was on a roll this morning with my daily poem… I must admit I am impressed how well it turned out How big is my love? Β It is….


My love is immeasurable
Like if I tried to count exactly how many grains of sand
Were on Accra Beach at 1 in the morning on Tuesday night
Or what exactly is the weight of a heart made heavy with missing you….

Immeasurable like the exact distance apart lust is from like is from love on the emotional scale
Or the speed of which my heart escalates when my thoughts oscillate around you
Or the strength of concentration it takes to control the penetration of
Your mind with my words
I want to make love with my voice
Not make you feel like a used whore
Emotionally raped by a wham bam thank you ma’am conversation.

My love is immeasurable
Like the exact span of the universe I fall into when we kiss
Or exactly how many seconds I have to miss the beating of my heart
Before I have to break the link with your lips
to make sure I can continue living.

My love is immeasurable
Like the exact amount of pleasure derived from hearing your voice
After not hearing it since yesterday at 9 o’clock
Since you were too tired to stay on the phone and took an early night
Or the speed in kilometres per second of my thoughts
As they race each other across the distance between my soul to yours
Irrespective of whether you are across the world
Or laying right next to me, wrapped up in my arms.

No instruments in existence can measure the level of persistence it takes to wear down your defenses
The length of time I dug into the trenches and made war against your shyness
Took siege against your reluctance to peek out of your shell
I rejoiced like Israel when that Jericho wall fell
And I moved in to lay claim to my territory.

My love for you is immeasurable.
So just accept it –
And stop trying.

  4. Alas, a fault of my own smutty mind, but on that refrain I kept wanting to offer a tape measure, so you could measure what doubtless is impressive, but measurable.

    I do wonder, though, about a lover who still — at this late date — thinks of the beloved in terms of “lay[ing] claim to my territory.” Not a mature, modern relationship, apparently.

    • LOL *Hides the tape measures*

      The ‘laying claim to my territory’ is only in reference to the metaphor of the Israelites taking Jericho. I don’t look at women as property, nor does my lady feel that I treat her that way. I just went where the poem took me, man! *grin*

      Glad you enjoyed it πŸ™‚

  6. Epic man, Epic. I think you channeling Walt Whitman with the long lines of verse.

  8. “…or what exactly is the weight of a heart made heavy with missing you….” There are so many lines in this poem I would just love to snatch and keep for myself! As per usual, a lovely piece.

  9. You have clutched my heart and wrung it out with your words. I feel deeply your words. This is my favorite part:

    My love is immeasurable
    Like the exact amount of pleasure derived
    From hearing your voice

    Love has no distance, no measure, well done!

  11. There are so many beautiful lines in this piece that I simply can’t pick out one or two favourites. This is deep, rich, emotionally satisfying poetry – no wonder those ladies recognised you from the TV.

  12. This is beautifully expressed. Whoever it is that it is being written about is one fortunate person! Your love overflows throughout.
