Throw It All Away

All the trappings
All the stuff
All the wrappings
All the fluff

All the gadgets
All the things
All the widgets
All the blings

All the pleasures
All the funk
All the treasures
All the junk

All the sweetness
All the prose
All the neatness
All the bows

All the goodies
All the treats
All the music
All the beats

All the starkness
All the sight
All the darkness
All the light

All of that
I'd throw away
All I want
Is you to stay


  1. It doesn't get better than that!

  2. aww - this is so beautifully expressed - i bet she stayed...

  3. The problem is everything else is retained. Finer feelings are cast aside...

  4. Yes this is nice, and the rhyme too
    "All I want is you to stay"

  5. You search her eyes
    As your own weep
    You'd give up all
    Her love to keep.

    All worldly possessions
    You'd cast away
    If one simple word
    You could hear her say

    The deep love in your heart
    You do confess
    And ask her to be yours
    And she says yes.

    A little gift from me, marantha jenelle, to a fellow poet with a lot of talent.

    heaven bless,

    marantha jenelle

  6. Nicely done. I hope she agreed to stay after promising to give up everything.

  7. I have to take this from your bumper sticker "Bubba Knows" everything goes but you have to stay.

  8. Awwwwww. So sweet. Lucky, whoever she is.

  9. Touching and Beautiful

  10. I love this, endearing and sweet~ Very touching!

  11. Romantic in its forthright own husband has said much the same to me, though not quite so poetically! Great poem...:)
