A love poem


I buried my face

I lay in cool softness

Not like sponge-

But malleable

As it takes to the image of my face

Like fine damp sand ready to bear

A likeness of me

My plaster of paris death mask

My whole body drapes across

What I weep for

Fingers spread wide apart

Seeking to grasp my loss

I spend last seconds trying to hold

What has shrugged me off

 

Futile tears

I should never visit the past

For I truly do not know who I weep for

 

When before me lies warmth

Sweet softness

Welcoming

Beckoning

Forgiving

Wanting me

I sicken myself

I dared to look back

And with that glimpse

Open a torrent in my soul

From which spills forth

What you would never allow me to give you

 

And it flows like blood

Bleeding away

Mingling with the dust

Of the sodden form

Over which my body lays

A thick red trail

Picking up the particles

From over what it pours

And they mix forever

At the bottom of the hill

The mud of the mixture

Dripping slowly into a spring

Each drop sinking

To the bottomless well

Leaching into what was once pure

 

I gasp for air but I endure

And the future is always unsure


Except for what we hope for

Blue, To me, it sounds like you are crying for yourself.
One of my favorites.
Always,

a haunting piece that reaches into the dark places that we all have but so often try to hide in the shadows of our souls. to feel the universal ache that we all have endured and dare to paint it for all to see and dare to acknowledge is the signature of a true poet. and you are.
Reviewed by Felix Perry 9/3/2007
Oh Blue, I feel the pain and ache of uncertainty seeping from this substantial write as you express the longing and yearning for the past and for the future. It is a sad moment perhaps but a moment just the same and moments pass to become the next moments in line. Take heart sweet Blue...the future holds special things for you.

Oh, wow -- this is a very stirring piece of poetry, filled with longing and regrets, but also, maybe hope? Very vivid imagery and such a pleasing rhythm.
Enjoyed.
