silhouetted #poem #poetry

i had to go through your soul

so i can get to mine

once in mine

i wish

i would have stayed in yours

silky sheets blushed the entire night

at dawn no space

between our souls

you laugh

i cry

a black lace glove, and a red rose

silhouetted against the floor.

  1. Oh, how utterly and tragically gorgeous, my dear friend!! Those opening two lines drew me in as a hopeless romantic and the ache that went through me at the past of wishing I stayed in yours just… hurt. Love this piece! ♥️🌸✨

     
    1. Hello my lovely K! Thank you so much for your fabulous comment. I am glad you love the poem!

      I hope you had a great Thanksgiving 🙂
      Wishing you a gorgeous weekend, my dear.

       
  2. Good afternoon G. Sorry, for the late visit. I was in a small auto accident yesterday.
    it hasn’t been the best of days.

    This was a beautiful poem. A journey and joining of two souls.
    Always a pleasure to read you.

     
      1. Thank you.

        That was no minor then. I am really sorry. Cars can be repaired. I know it’s a hassle but the most important thing right now it’s you. Get a good rest. Ay….. I am so sorry, Drew!

         
      2. You will be missed. However, you need to get better. Wishing you a speedy recovery, Drew.
        Why am I still talking?
        🙂

      I hope everything is well.

       
    1. Thank you my dear Tanya! Your words humble me.
      I just read your most recent poem. It’s soooo beautiful and carries so many meanings. The metaphors are stunning. Sorry for telling you all that here. For some reason I cannot leave a comment on your blog. It may be because my internet is acting up.

      Also, if you are traveling I wish you a miraculous trip! Enjoy! Send us beautiful poems!

       
      1. It’s all fine dear G, thanks for the heart-warning comments, I am indeed humbled! Thanks for your wishes. I’ll definitely keep you posted!

         
  3. I recognize this painting, or at least I think I do. It looks like Steve Hanks. I’m a huge fan of his artwork my webmaster turned me on to him year ago and I believe I used this one for one of my poems, though I have different images on my poetry blog now, I stole those b & w;s off Tumblr. Nevertheless, Steve Hanks is an awesome artist and the painting works perfectly with your poem. 🙂

     
    1. Hi Charles. Thank you for stopping by.
      I downloaded the image from Shutterstock and the name of the artist was not specified. Yes, Hanks is an great artist 🙂
      Anyway, I did not see any recent posts on your poetry blog. I have to check it out.
      Enjoy the rest of your day!
