unfulfilled love - unrequited love - love relinquished - life unlived...

we all are gypsies of a sort wandering traveling through this life other lives space and time here there and yon on roads less traveled - this is a written and visual journal of my own travels - imagined and/or real - come along with me - we'll dance among the stars under the sun and over the moon - we'll share our stories of love around the campfire - come along -

poetry from the heart...


POETRY FROM THE HEART - my own words dedicated to all the words left unspoken, the acts left undone - the love unlived unfulfilled -

i dance with you...only in dreams...

tweet me, but tweet me gently, please!

come thee...



















come thee to me from
the frigid forest holding you hostage
the frozen tundra of lifeless images
from the cold dark chambers of your heart
the empty streets of your life
from the dark wasteland of lust long forgot
the empty caverns of your loins
come thee to me in
the whispers of your thoughts
in the shadows of your soul
your fingers long lost touch
in the tasteless surface of your tongue
the aching rivers of your yearning
in the scorching heat now burning
come thee to me
find shelter from the storm
warmth from the cold
come thee to me
in thirst and in hunger
sip thy fill from the holy grail
eat from my sweet fruit
come thee to me

hi there...i am so astonished at your prolific writings...have no idea how you do it and wonder if they are stashed in binders and books, diaries and notebooks as i cannot believe you write this much and always so beautifully...as always your words speak volumes to my soul.

oh, linda - no, girl, they [the "words"] are nowhere until you see them here - i don't have any stashed anywhere at all - and don't start them until i sit down to do a post 99.99% of the time - although i have been known to sit in the parking lot of a doctor's office waiting on my grandbaby and his mommie to come out and scratch one out like i did with "i walk these lonely streets" - or something - or jot a few words down that are inspiring and that i might come back to later to do a completed piece on - like you start your paintings and keep starting another ;) - i do have little jottings of groups of words or maybe a line or two - but most of what i do, i do straight from the keyboard as i post - a lot of times i'll have a "word" or "thought" in my head - a lot of times i'll have seen an image that provokes something and i go back and forth to the image and the post, letting the image actually "write" the piece as it "tells" me what to say - know what i mean? geeee...sorry, i'm rambling so!
thanks so much for such kind words, linda!

hi dulce! so glad you enjoyed - actually, after i posted this, i realized how similar it was to the previous one and almost deleted it - but then decided to let it stay and say what it says! :)

Very nice Gypsy!
Longing, desire, and need are all common in that we all seem to understand, because we have these wants, needs in common... By God, did that make any sense? I sure thought it did ;) but I cannot find the words. It's friday forgive me...:)

have a wonderful weekend~
Stay warm ~ out of the that snow~

Sweet words of temptation, dear Jenean!

But you should know that nothing is emptier than words, nothing... No, I' wrong! Nothing is emptier than Life itself...

A life of laughter, then a life of learning, of discovery.

A life of longing, a live of yearning... soon to be a life of sorrow and suffering.

There is nothing wrong in hoping, but also nothing wrong in knowing.

Another very cold day. :But why do I feel this cold inside my bones? Something's wrong, I'm freezing, I'm going away.

The very few women in my life... I hope they're happy. May you be blessed with Love, milady.

hello calli - so sorry to be just now responding - with snow storm have had no cable or internet since friday late - but of love and wants and needs and desire, yes, i know exactly what you mean - you said it well, really - and it is true i think that we do all share these things - whether we admit it to ourselves and/or others is another thing - very difficult for some to admit what might be perceived by themselves as "weaknesses" or "frailties" - but that does not make the need or want or desire any less - thanks so much for coming by as you do calli - i so look forward to your visits!

dear roger - thank you as always for your comments which in and of themselves always make for still another post ;)

de mots, bien que - les mots ne peuvent pas être vide - jamais - les mots sont remplis de nos pensées, nos croyances, nos peurs, notre amour - nos âmes --
et de la vie vide, Roger??? sûrement pas - ne fût-ce vide afin que vous ne pouvais pas sentir avec autant de passion avec autant de véhémence comme vous le faites tant de choses - la vie mai ont apporté mai ont entraîné de nombreuses déceptions et les chagrins et les pertes, mais comme vous le dites, des rires, et de l'espoir et la connaissance aussi - même découverte - très bien - mais je suis désolé - je Ramble On - sauf que pour moi, je sais que la vie soit merveilleuse, même avec toutes ses déceptions et les chagrins et les pertes --

le froid sévit, trouver juste la chaleur - de trouver le rouge, le rouge chaud - et le vivre - vivre le rouge! tout y est pour les vivants! mais je sais que parfois si difficile de passer du froid familier - si difficile de quitter le familier --

je suis béni avec l'amour, cher monsieur - en vérité, je suis - et je suis heureux d'avoir montré cela et dit que d'une manière si petit mais magnifique - merci!
