love and misadventure

The signs as poems from "Love & Misadventure" by Lang Leav
  • Aries:Afraid To Love
  • "I turn away
  • and close my heart-
  • to the promise of love
  • that is luring.
  • For the past has taught
  • to not be caught,
  • in what is not
  • worth pursuing-
  • To never do
  • the things I've done
  • that once had led
  • to my undoing."
  • Taurus:Swan Song
  • "Her heart is played
  • like well-worn strings;
  • in her eyes,
  • the sadness sings-
  • of one who was destined
  • for better things."
  • Gemini:First Love
  • "Before I fell
  • in love with words,
  • with setting skies,
  • and singing birds-
  • it was you I fell
  • in love with first."
  • Cancer:Art and Books
  • "Without a doubt,
  • I must read,
  • all the books
  • I've read about.
  • See the artworks
  • hung on hooks,
  • that I have only,
  • seen in books."
  • Leo:Beauty's Curse
  • "Her bow is drawn
  • to worlds of dark;
  • where arrows spring
  • and miss their mark.
  • She'll turn their heads-
  • but not their hearts."
  • Virgo:Saving You
  • "The darkness takes him over,
  • the sickness pulls him in;
  • his eyes--a blown-out candle;
  • I wish to go with him.
  • Sometimes I see a flicker--
  • a light that shone from them;
  • I hold him to me tightly,
  • before he's gone again."
  • Libra:Heart On The Line
  • "Love is good,
  • it is never bad-
  • but it will drive you mad!
  • When it is given to you,
  • in dribs and drabs."
  • Scorpio:A Thank-You Note
  • "You have said
  • all the things
  • I needed to hear
  • before I knew
  • I needed to hear them.
  • To be unafraid
  • of all the things
  • I used to fear,
  • before I knew
  • I shouldn't fear them."
  • Sagittarius:In Two Parts
  • "You come and go so easily,
  • your life is as you knew-
  • while mine is split in two.
  • How I envy so the half of me,
  • who lived before love's due,
  • who was yet to know of you."
  • Capricorn:Jealousy
  • "It was the way
  • you spoke about her.
  • With animosity, regret, disdain
  • and underneath it all-
  • just a hint of pride."
  • Aquarius:Waking Without You
  • "Every song that sings of him,
  • from every heart
  • heard breaking.
  • I sing along in dreams of him,
  • I cling to-
  • when I start waking."
  • Pisces:The Keeper
  • "You were like a dream,
  • I wish I hadn't
  • slept through.
  • Within it I fell deeper,
  • than your heart would
  • care to let you.
  • I thought you were a keeper,
  • I wish I could
  • have kept you."
