love letters #poem

i am looking over your love letters

my hands are shaking

winds are trying

to take them away from me

bury them

into the depths of the roiling ocean

 

i am fighting the winds

i am back with you in that place

palm trees born from violet skies

white drapes covering adrenalized lovers

i am laughing

follies of love

your teeth leave painful marks

on my shoulder

 

winds funneled through my heart

push me into the ocean

salty waters corrode my nostrils

stingrays puncture my arteries

a church bell tolls

your letters

where are they?

    1. Good morning, D

      I’ll do my best 😊
      Thank you for your kind words! Please breathe. You need to post so we can read beautiful poetry.

       
      1. Aw… you are sweeter than I am 😊
        I can’t wait to read your upcoming poem. I am looking for inspiration

         
      2. You posted? Again.. something is not right this time on my side probably. I’ll take care of it.
        Looking forward to reading your post!

         
      3. I am fixing mine now. I read the poem. I will post a comment in a few minutes.

    1. Thank you so much, Daniela. I am really happy that you enjoyed it.
      Have a wonderful and magic, evening!

       
  1. Gorgeous. You write with such an effortless flow of emotion which is rare but beautiful.
    There are many poets around here who would wish to pour forth such words but never manage because they deny their truth and focus on using specific forms of poetry or terminology and parading it all for others to see and making sure we all know what type or form of poem they are using… It does nothing for me and i will never be a person who says ooh.. look how much this person knows about formal poetic terms and language and form.

    Because THAT does NOT a poet make

    Truth and more truth and painful truth and bleeding truth and tears and laughter and all that’s in between is what makes a true poet

    So what I am saying is

    I like this and you a lot

    1. Hello, my dear!

      I just finish reading your gorgeous poem; first read this morning. And what a beautiful read! Your talent mesmerizes me.

      Thank you so much for your kind words. I am glad you like my work.

      Form doesn’t bother me, although I understand what you are saying. There are other things that bother me. However, I am going to leave those things for later.

      Thank you again for your generous words and I look forward to reading more of your beautiful pieces.
      May you have a marvelous rest of the day 🙂

       
      1. Oh well now you HAVE to tell me what those things are! Do not tease me…

        Thank you for such kindness and compliments but I swear we were talking about you!

        You write beautifully…is all I meant.

        Have a lovely day honey ❤️

         
      2. I really plan to tell you. I’ll contact you at the end of the week.
        ❤️❤️❤️❤️

         
      3. Haha! Do not worry. Nothing nefarious. Seeking your opinion about something😊

         
    1. Poets usually use metaphors, therefore in most cases the poem is up to the readers’ interpretation. This poem is about some love letters. That is all I can say. The rest is up to you.
