    Mining for Love

    My loves runs on like idle sleep
    Like gold hidden 6 miles deep
    My heart slows down all it beeps
    And no one cares if I laugh or weep

    Use your love wisely
    Allowing her braids to uncoil
    Diging up the earth for gold
    And then fertilize the soil

    When love is hidden
    There’s no joy or prize
    Unlock your feelings from all your insides
    No matter its dept, width or size

    Mining for Affection
    Will come in due time
    Excavate not relics from the past
    An impatient spirit looses everytime

    Nice Write. The mining terms in terms of searching for buried feelings made a good theme throughout the poem. Keep digging up that creativity sista! Peace

    I enjoyed the metaphor of mining, and searching for love. A thorough search by a willing excavator is wise. Great drop.

    This is such a sexy and passionate piece.


    When love is hidden
    There’s no joy or prize
    Unlock your feelings from all your insides
    No matter its dept, width or size

    What wise words! I definitely enjoyed this piece. Especially the second verse: "Use your love wisely....". (It's a great tip for me. )
