Peter Stavropoulos

The Love I have has no other name

The Love I have has no other name
It belongs to you
The loss imagined imagines me
It belongs to you

Chances

Each chance
A new belief
Something new
A heart's relief
Each romance
A lover's hue
Finding Love
Each in you

I Thought about you

I Thought about you
And lost my memory
In time
I could not remember
The loss
And yet
In you
I have a memory
Of a happier time

Kisses are Misses

Your dress is fluttering
In the wind
- Kiss

I like it when you lie
In the sun
- Kiss

I'd forgotten the perfume
You wore this morning
- Kiss

Yesterday we had so much
Fun
- Kiss

Kisses are misses
- Kiss
Come back again

The education of the young mind

The education of the young mind
Took place
Behind closed doors
Because that mind -
Initially free -
Had to be
Taught
The value of freedom.

The education of the young mind
Took place
In an open space
Because that mind -
Once closed -
Had to be
Set free
To explore itself.

Metaphor

With prose a poetry is as sweet
As Love to air and perfume meet
My second wish came true
My first also was to be with you
As Lovers fall from getting frail
You and I it's true can never fail
We are and never were
Each others splendid metaphor

Woman of my imagination's dreams

Wonderful Woman
Wonderous Woman
Woman of my imagination's dreams

How did you find me?
How do I know you?

Wonderful Woman
Wonderous Woman

It is you I have longed for
Yet still I long for you

Woman of my imagination's dreams
Wonderful Woman
Wonderous Woman

How you have loved me
Yet how I have loved you

The Story of a Poem (Narrative Poem)

Prepared to ridicule himself, this fool
Is guarded against the jibes
Of those he thinks less inclined to self-criticism.
How then is he to gauge his faults
And turn them into something worthwhile?

How can he define his foolishness
If uncertain as to the extent of his limitations?
How can he begin to accept the advice of others -
'Go jump! ' 'Take a good hard look at yourself! ' 'Grow up! ' -
If he isn't prepared to be objective?

Unprepared to accept objectivity as objective
'I know what I know', he spouts
Ill-mannered, inconsiderate and obstinate.
How is he to assume the more demanding role
Of the one being spoken to?

No words, it seems,
Can convince him of his stupidity.
