My poem “I wanted to love you” up at Free Verse Revolution #poetry

I wanted to love you

each word I write cries on the tunes of spring,
a spring that ends in graveyards and in dreams
the night I abandoned you on that bench and left
snows in my mind the syllable of hell
I wanted to return
I wanted to love you
I choked on ecstasies from vaguely bluish lands
that night I took a part of you with me
I cashed your soul and…

      1. Good morning G,

        Hope you are safe and well.

        Oh, this was stunning. It took my breath away. Had to get my bearings first. It has to be read more than once to fully grasp the majesty of this piece. (I will have to read it a third and fourth time to digest and admire the beauty).

        Resurrecting ghosts of love, prophets with no tongues, a spring that ends in graveyards and dreams. Your writing and creativity is outstanding. It leaves me wanting so much more. (Now, you can plug your book). LOL.

        The lines of the heaven/hell love you/hate you. PERFECT.

        Really an amazing piece G. I thought your writing was perfect before, but it just gets better and better. Don’t know how you do it.

        Okay, finished gushing.

         
      2. Good morning Drew,
        Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the praise. I’ll keep in my soul every word you wrote. I’ll cherish every word you wrote and I am grateful for every syllable.
        “Oh, this was stunning. It took my breath away” Thank you again, but please breathe Drew. The ocean is there and on its shore you may find love.
        Ok, I finished blushing.
        Thank you again.
        Stay safe and take care.
        G

  4. Ok, so how proud am I to call the astronomically talented Gabriela, my friend. This poem is beyond the power of any adjectives to describe it. Every. Single. Line. It is absolutely magnificent.

    โ€œand now between the mighty heaven and the hell
    I love you and I hate you are the sameโ€

    WOW.

    Gosh G. I hope you are well, I send you five dozen purple tulips. I feel like being extravagant, and you deserve it xoxoxย 

     
    1. “o how proud am I to call the astronomically talented Gabriela, my friend.” Aw.. Rachel I am so humbled by your words and so proud to call my dearest friend Rachel one of the best poets in the world (only if she would do what I am begging her to do for a while). It’s really such a rewarding and magnificent experience to be your friend Rachel
      Every single word of you makes me happy. You are fabulous.
      My forever gratitude and love Rachel.
      ” I send you five dozen purple tulips” Purple tulips are actually one of my favorite flowers. Thank you for the flowers. Thank you for the purple, And thank you for being you.
      Sending you chocolate, roses, and a great red,
      Can I send hugs too?

       
      1. Please do send hugs. I need them.

        Iโ€™m glad you love the flowers, and my words. I mean every one of them. Maybe I could do โ€˜that thingโ€™ sometime soon… ??

         
      2. A million of hugs. They are flowing over the ocean holding their hands and bringing you love and wishing you plenty of success.
        “Maybe I could do โ€˜that thingโ€™ sometime soonโ€ฆ ?? Yesterday. You can’t do it soon enough. Ah, sweetheart, am I too though sometimes? I just want you to be happy, well, and loved.
        xoxox
        Oh, don’t forget. I sent a red too.
        G,

         
      3. I am going to have that red tonight as I cook dinner…. I am looking forward to it already. Iโ€™m going to think of you as I drink it. I am doing ok thank you sweetheart, i am happy NZ is taking a very cautious and precautionary response – 4 weeks of strict nationwide lockdown. I hope you are well and happy too. I think I read in your comments that you have gone home? That makes me very happy. I hope you are happy, well, and loved too, and that you are able to take a little enforced rest over this time xoxox

         
      4. “I am going to have that red tonight as I cook dinnerโ€ฆ” That makes me happy. What”s for dinner?
        “NZ is taking a very cautious and precautionary response โ€“ 4 weeks of strict nationwide lockdown. ” I think that’s the right thing to do. I do not know how people in NZ see that but I really think is good for everyone. Please stay safe Rachael.
        “I think I read in your comments that you have gone home?” I went to visit some family in the US. Once there I wanted to come back home. It just feels too much with everything that is going on around us. But I postponed the return several times because they did not want to let me leave. I returned home 5 hours ago and held an online class for 4 hours. Replying to my blog comments now and then I am going to rest.
        Stay safe and make sure you rest too, sweetheart.
        love
        G.

         
      5. Mostly, people here are in support of the lockdown. I think it is definitely the right thing to do. Iโ€™m pleased you went home if that felt right for you. Although I understand why your family wanted you to stay.

        The red was wonderful, Iโ€™d wish Iโ€™d had you to talk to as I drunk it. Imagine that.

        Keep well dear G, and keep in touch. I need my updates from you. Love to you, too xoxox

        Love to you too G.

         
      6. “Mostly, people here are in support of the lockdown. I think it is definitely the right thing to do.” I think so too. In this way everyone will be safe.
        “The red was wonderful, Iโ€™d wish Iโ€™d had you to talk to as I drunk it. Imagine that.” Oh, that’s so nice of you to say. I’m imaging. One day you and I need to talk for a long time. It will happened.
        Stay safe my sweet Rachael and update me from time to time.
        Love
        G.
