Peace for the Soul

A common space for harmonic peacemakers

painting by Susie Ian  aka  Crystalin

 

 

yet i am reverent

 

in this reverent collection

of moments

i reflection

circumspection

i open my treasure

that of my heart

that my soul may let forth it’s pleasures

 

i pour these words

of love

upon the paper before me

in love

for love

for love is my longing

 

i am missing her

e’en in the midst of embrace

and i can not help

but think of the absence

of her face

and the taste of her lips

nor her softly curved hips

that entice me to do naught

but dream of her

e’en in my waking walking

 

my visions are only of her

as is my talking, my speech

 

and each time i am in her presence

all i can do is give thanks

for i am grateful

to have been chosen

to be touched

by such lovely a spirit

love

 

since the dawn of time

her rhymes have imbued me

wooed me

moved me

soothed me

and cued me

into action

to pursue her

and i never tire

for that fire

she has lit in my soul

ebbs not

ever

 

and as clever as i may be

i still not can see

how i can fully possess thee

my love

for you be

ever elusive

non conclusive

non seclusive

but never abusive

save that of my incompleteness

without you

 

and i know

that i can never be whole

from Soul to Sole

 

the path i tread seems pointless

and though i know

the destination i vie for

and i die each day for

i must implore

that you con and save quick

and fix

that place where you have been torn

from my awareness

for i fair not

in thy absence

 

and nothing makes sense

which is why

in recompense

i sit and exact

these words of Soul Speak

for i am becoming weak

and weaker

if thou feed me not

yet i am reverent
