Poet's Corner

The A-Z of love part 3


I can’t take my eyes off of you
This love haunts me through and through
Once I am eye to eye contact
I can’t take my eyes off of you


I feel young in your eyes
You have refreshed me
So I can see life anew
This heart and soul has grown young because of you


You are my life
My hope and all I am
You are the flame within my
Soul I cannot control


The flame is burning
This soul is yearning
you burn through me
when we touch


My romance with you is like a quest
I would suggest
That I am like a modern day night with you
As my grail
I set sail
for the holy land that is you


I am hungry for your love
So hungry its hard to breathe
And to believe in anything else
Its hard to hope, to dream
Without you.


About the author

Dan Hooks

Hi there my name is Dan Hooks and I am a poet.

My poetry has many diverse themes from madness to the mundane, from fantasy and fable to philosophical and the darkness of reality (whatever that is).

I have been writing since I was 18 and have inspired other artists such as Benjamin Heine who created an piece of art work called”filled with fire” from my poem called “Freedom”. That poem was inspired from a quote from Nelson Mandela saying “we are free to be free”. Writing I find is a collaborative process.

I have also written other poems which have been used in language courses in America, Canada and Australia. One of which is called “poem on identity” and the other one is “Antithesis”.

I have a soundcloud account in which I post poems to music and my spoken word pieces. I find spreading my work on various social media platforms really useful for presenting my work.

I am also fond of travelling and have climbed Mount Fuji in Japan visited Finland skied in both USA in keystone Colorado and Whistler in Canada. I find perspective can be found in travelling to other countries and it also helps you appreciate other cultures as well your own.
