Love poems: ‘For one night only naked in your arms’ – 14 poets pick their favourites

Richard Phillips survived the longest wrongful prison sentence in American history by writing poetry and painting with watercolors. But on a cold day in the prison yard, he carried a knife and thought about revenge. Richard Phillips is a tall man with broad shoulders and a habit of singing to himself, usually without words, a deep and joyful sound that seems to rise from his soul. He began singing when he was a boy, and kept singing in prison, and now sings in the car, and at the dinner table, sustaining that one long note, as if nothing in the world could stop the music. Two days after he was sentenced to life in prison in , Phillips wrote a poem. It may have been the first poem he ever wrote. He was 26 years old, and had left high school in tenth grade, and now, with plenty of time to wonder, he took a pencil and set his wondering down on the page. He wondered about the color of raindrops, the color of the sky, the color of his heart, the color of his words when he sang aloud, and the color of his need for someone to hold. One appeal failed in , another in

Wing and a prayer: A druid poet joins the protests at Balcombe to incant against fracking. You know, the sort who believes hemp oil cures cancer. I spent a day last week with the anti-fracking protesters in Balcombe, West Sussex, keen to discover if they have a point. I parked at the fortressed gate to the Cuadrilla site, in front of about fluoro-clad policemen and women — you could gauge the level of threat had been downgraded as they sported ghastly baseball caps instead of helmets.

I returned, in Jimmy Choos, to talk to a skinny man who seemed to be dancing in front of the bemused police, drafted in from all over the country.

Natsuki has short, straight pastel pink hair and pink eyes. She also has a red hourglass-shaped hair clip at the right side of her bangs, as well as two red ribbons forming two small twin-tails. The rest of her hair is short and she has small bangs on the side of her face and small locks of hair on her forehead. Unlike the other girls, her canine teeth are longer than the rest of her teeth, making them visible when she opens her mouth wide enough. Natsuki wears the traditional school uniform just like the other characters for the majority of the game, which is a warm gray blazer and underneath a brown sweater vest over a white collared shirt topped off with a red ribbon and also a dark blue skirt, white knee-high socks and white uwabaki slippers with a sky blue tip.

If the player chooses her path on Day 3, she will wear a light pink ruffled skirt with a black trim, a white shirt with short sleeves decorated with a light pink cat face on the left side of her chest and light pink trims along the edges of the sleeves. Under the shirt, two black bra straps can be seen. She is the shortest character in the Literature Club, a feature that results in people commonly mistaking her for a first-year student.

Nothing Is Okay

Sure, these words may at times have been arbitrarily attached to other, more mountainy objects, but here, in this poem, they find their true home. I met my future husband at 19, and I wrote this poem in a notebook for him. By then it had already been echoing around inside me for years, telling me the truth about love. Love is monomaniacal, love is appalling, love is secret, love is childish, love rips you from the bosom of your family, love is woozy, love is ravishing, love is scrumdiddlyumptious.

I’m still black with my love for big words and being calm in conflict even though “black girls always get ratchet when they mad” and “black people don’t read”. I’m still black when I cross my legs and straighten my back because “black girls can’t be classy”. I’m still black with all the Hispanic and Asian and white and other men that I also find attractive. Sometimes I fit the stereotype of a black woman, and sometimes I don’t.

Either way, I’m proud of my black, I’m in love with all of my black brothers and sisters, and I’m never going to be your “safe black girl” to date because I AM a lot like “other black girls” who are beautiful even if they are ratchet or whatever. Just a reminder. Some of y’all forgot. Peep me today with my bright ass dashiki and my weave laid.

The simple answer is yes. It is societal norms that drive this scenario. The media mainly portrays this image that is almost brainwashed into people that thin is in. Most young people, male or female, will say that they are not interested in larger people. I also think the idea that people could never be physically attracted to someone that is not fit tends to go away as people get older and more mature.

Weirdly I prefer bigger women because they are generally more interested in pleasing their partners. Thin, beautiful women are used to getting things handed to them, they think their looks make them good in bed and good at a relationship. It takes more. You very seldom here a guy say I had a great experience with a wonderful lover.

Stuck up men, men who think that they are all that, want skinny women. I, myself, love curves.
