when they were young.

the 12 given Wordle words:
cheek new apple journey mouth touch 
grief dreams hunger pain melt burden

dancing cheek to cheek 
with a new apple of the eye 
to embark on a journey, 
uncertain but for a taste of life

there were mouth watering 
episodes for every likely touch,
when they were young.
but there were grief, sorrow or joys 
for dreams that couldn't last.

hunger for love was the incentive
though pain may linger or melt
a reminder that broken hearts 
did carry burdens for 
those inexperienced

  1. Love is a risk worth taking, broken hearts and all. Nice one.

  2. I agree with Truedessa 100%! This poem is lovely, Hank!

    Much love,

  3. Great poem Hank a pleasure to read....... I will be popping back from time to time as I'm awaiting treatment on my eyes which has cataracts.
    Yake care and have a good weekend.

  4. Hank, love is such a paradox. Most of it visits and moves on, but it always leaves a residue of itself within us.

  5. I agree with Mish
    These are mt favourite lines:
    "there were mouth watering
    episodes for every likely touch,"

    Thanks for dropping by my blog today Hank
