Love Poems You Didn’t Write: Since Feeling is First

Over the past few days I have been posting a series of pieces headlined ‘Love poems you wish you had written’, from an idea originally mooted by David J Beauman, AKA The Dad Poet. When David saw that I was returning to the series, after a break of two years, he reciprocated, reblogging a couple of my selections (or rather the poems requested by my mates on social media). So today I return the compliment, because he has posted an intriguing poem by E E Cummings, and compares the ‘syntax of things’ to cooking a meal for the man he loves. Creating something delicious needs a basic technique, but a whole lot more magic to make it special…..

Thanks for all the inspiration David. Here’s to a poetic 2015 🙂

  1. Suzie, I have wanted more than once to write about my own bouts with depression. They come in cycles, and are sometimes accompanied by anxiety. Two of the natural drugs that help, if I can push myself through to keep at them long enough to become habitual, are exercise and writing. You inspired me this winter when you took up this topic again, and I apologize for just inviting myself along like that but it was really helpful for me this week. Thank you!
