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!

this crimson vessel...

heart’s so full
of dark gray clouds
got me in its pull
wanna scream out loud
but sound don’t come
to a heart heavy as mine
thoughts turned numb
stayin’ alive just to pine

seems the skies above
feel the same bleak way
weepin’ my loss of love
drippin’ sadness night and day

rains come down
deep into my soul
so ‘fraid i’m gonna drown
and it stings me so

trickles down thru my flesh
strippin’ ‘way all that’s left
leavin’ nothin’ but an empty mess
like a sinister theft

hurricane winds of despair
leavin’ my mind tossed about
can’t rebuild can’t repair
this crimson vessel

full of doubt

WOW How have you done this?
This parting of the icture depicts so much , as much as the very words of a dream willing to get out of...
Astounding words/poem my dear lady!


oh, dulce, i'm such a visual person - i mean, probably in an OCD way ;)

- it just seemed that these words needed to visually "come from the heart - the crimson vessel" because her "heart's so full" - and i thought of doing the font in a gray but somehow it didn't "look" as good as the red font - and i like the look of the words written in her heart's blood -

well, that's my take on this piece, anyway!

so happy that you enjoyed, dear lady, who is so great with words!!!

Beautiful! Like Dulce, I love the way the words go down the middle.

painful words, tearing right through the (picture and) soul...


i was really happy with being able to do the image and words this way, shadow - a perfect fitting, i think - thank you very much for your words over here!
