Another love poem of exes and ohs.

But I Feel Him

By Nordette N. Adams

Another man who still hates me wrote

that I'm in love with a man in my mind.

He may mean you.

You linger. But I didn't know you

together with him. How have you been lately

conjured to sing deep under my skin?

Your words, your lines--

elegant verse--I cling to each end,

lean into your flow, your rhyme.

I kick my leg up behind me like a dancer

lean and kiss the center where hides your heart and

I coo to your ku.

Perhaps you are only in my head, a poet

never to be mine, but keep sending these love poems.

Any puff of you is worth my time.

You kindred spirit breathing

like a Rumi stanza

resurrection to a withered vine.

and oh the words echo - menacing
the heart already full already hurting still
yet playful of the thoughts and words
eased in by your p-o-e-t-r-y

so glad i stopped in
this moves

Positively undone by the beauty, the power in these lines - well done! Agree with Karen: you've been missed. And are. =]

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Nordette - Enjoyed this love poem that grows into the spiritual. Love that last stanza:

You kindred spirit breathing

like a Rumi stanza

resurrection to a withered vine.

Powerful writing, m'dear Nordette; so good to see you posting here! You've been missed! Welcome home! Well done; brava!

Darlin Nordette, how I feel this - and you! Kindred spirits we may be, too, but I'll refrain from leaving my calling card on your collar a la Sage! :)) Must be the coquettishness, that adrenalin rush and coltish kick that kick-asses our life into overdrive. Man-in-my-mind could well be Man-in-the-moon, but his effects are universal and totally real. I do so adore your games of Noughts and Crosses... Hope you're doin good down there in Brooklyn - keep puffin! K xxooxx

These days, it's good to see a romance poem from you...wish I could see a nametag pinned on his collar "Ms. Nordette Adams your lips have been here"...I know a man that knows you that likes Rumi...nice thoughts here, Nordette...I've missed well.
