To Love Unconditionally – Guest post by Darren Tinnerstet

To Love UnconditionallyWhy do we love
Love is so strange
Love can be addictive

What makes love real
Is love all heart
Or is love emotion

How you show love
Makes love so unique
My form of love
Is to love unconditionally

Love is Her… – Guest post by Max Smith

Love is Her...
Love is the knowing look across the room

Love is the touch of her skin to yours

Love is her emotions in sync with yours

Love is your tears bring hers

Love is her smile brings yours

Love is the lingering taste of her lips on yours after a kiss

Love is her passionate embrace and the elation you get from it

Love is the joy you get when her smell lingers after such an embrace

Love is her

Love is what i’m in

Love Brings Me Back – Guest post by Francine Gagne

Love Brings Me BackHow do you love?
Is love a feeling?
Is love a thought?

Love is a weapon
Love is a savior

Where does love start?
In the beginning love

Without self love, empty
A soul lost, rudderless

Love brings me back

Yet, another poetry submission from the recent challenge to my work writing group. 10 lines with the word love in every line. I am surrounded by talented people.Β  Great job Francine!


Love is a Key – Guest post by Greg Kopta


LOVE is a keySharing another poem from the recent writing challenge to my writing group at work to write a poem of 10 lines with the word love in every line.Β  This one is from Greg >

Love whispers in shadows.
Love dances with starlight.

Love binds the wounds
That love has created.
Love soothes the fears
That love has inspired.
Love is a key
To love’s own lock.

To feel’s to love;
To love, to live.

They Call Me Love – Guest post by Lin Martin

I was recently challenged to write a poem about love in only ten lines with the word love in each line. Well, I challenged the members of the Creative Writing Strategy group that I am part of at work (we meet every other week during the lunch hour to support and encourage one another), to do the same. Over the next few weeks I will be featuring each member who submitted a poem. So without further ado here is the first by Lin.


They call me Love.
Sends me love daily.

Tiny messages of love.
Love in emoticon hearts.

Their lips give love;
My lips needing love.

Love grazing against skin,
Lingering love through fingerprints.

Whispering insecurities ask: love?
Reprieving love; creating hope.
