they mourned the loss of  Paradise

i  sung of  Chaos and Eternal Night
£

they wanted what was gone

i  was seeking something new
£

they formed a processional

i  danced with you under the stars
£

they said lovers cannot see

i  saw the love in your eyes
£

they looked back at Yesterday

i  looked forward to Tomorrow and You
£

 Paradise will never be lost
when  one looks within
and sees…..   there’s
nothing  i  won’t
do for love

for You
you
you
you
you

“For My Lover”    Tracy Chapman

lyrics ~

Two weeks in a Virginia jail
For my lover for my lover
Twenty thousand dollar bail
For my lover for my lover

And everybody thinks
That I’m the fool
But they don’t get
Any love from you

The things we won’t do for love
I’d climb a mountain if I had to
And risk my life so I could have you
You, you, you, you, you, you, you, you, you…

Everyday I’m psychoanalyzed
For my lover for my lover
They dope me up and I tell them lies
For my lover for my lover

And everybody thinks
That I’m the fool
But they don’t get
Any love from you

The things we won’t do for love
I’d climb a mountain if I had to
And risk my life so I could have you
You, you, you, you, you, you, you, you, you…

I follow my heart
And leave my head to ponder
Deep in this love
No man can shake
I follow my heart
And leave my mind to wonder
Is this love worth
The sacrifices I make

Two weeks in a Virginia jail
For my lover for my lover
Twenty thousand dollar bail
For my lover for my lover

Everyday I’m psychoanalyzed
For my lover for my lover
They dope me up and I tell them lies
For my lover for my lover

And everybody thinks
That I’m the fool
But they don’t get
Any love from you

The things we won’t do for love
I’d climb a mountain if I had to
And risk my life so I could have you
You, you, you, you, you, you, you, you, you…

  1. Sis! You took this prompt and kicked its ass way into next week! This is awesome. All about slipping past the defeated sighers and going for it. Did I mention…I love it!

    I like the antiphonal quality of this poem!

    My Favorite Seeking

  7. I dig your style.. you manage to tear away the wrappings and grab the essesnce so.. chaotically.. the whole page is a splash of vibrancy.. the opening gambit, your poem, the song.. bang bang boom boom..

  8. Visiting from Poetry Jam: I like your approach to the prompt, enjoyed the way you wrote the two initial poems side by side and then followed with the third that was ‘icing on the cake.’ Beautiful work!

  9. This might have been exactly what I needed to read today. Seriously.

  10. Becky Sain

    Wonderful Dani. xoxoxo

  11. a lot of work went into this post – very impressive, dani!

  12. girl did you ever work this one, love it, and the use of all the prompts, fantastic

  13. passionate words, what a thrill to see you share.
    Smiles.

    Happy Thanksgiving.
    :)

  14. Helen

    This is stellar .. out of the universe!

  15. I just love this! Such wisdom!

  16. Lovely way to do paradise both lost and found. I like the way they are set up on the page. Neat looking blog. I like the colors and contrasts.
