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!

then love me here...








if you cannot love me there
there
in the land of life and breath
then love me here
here
in the land of indigo blood
and velum flesh

here
where your caresses
scorch this parchment skin
here
where your lips
meet mine in crimson slips
here
where words unspoken
are screamed in paper dreams

here
on this paper
where the ink flows

like the rivers run
to my heart

 
here

Gypsy-I was completely swept up in this. Sometimes something will resonate so strongly in me and this one did. It reminded me to stoke the passion I have in the here and now with the one I have here and now. Your words are a magic potion to me.

glynis - i am so happy that you find solace here - if that is the right word - writing words is one thing - knowing that someone else "hears" them - gets them - is something else - and something for which i am very grateful - thank you so much! ;)
