Of light and darkness #poem #poetic prose #prose poem #poetry collection

He stepped into a space governed by love and hate at the same time. He did not understand how these two concepts melted into each other by means of interplay.

Light and darkness adorning the shoulder of the woman who wakes up in the arms of her lover. There is no distinction between the two. Both mold the roundness of her shoulder with its naked softness and its distinct sharpness. During the nights in which the moon is glossy and crisp like the crust of a country bread, the woman’s body gives birth to mountain chains and fragrant valleys.

The world remains the same as two lovers riveted onto themselves.

I know he loved me. Yet his mind was too pedestrian to understand.

    1. Thank you so much my dearest Ely. You are such a sweetheart. Sending you plenty of love and hugs. Enjoy the rest of your day.

    1. Good morning Timothy and thank you. Sending everyone a hug. Maya sends kisses.

      1. Is Maya better behaved? Sasha, who is usually really good about taking her meds, she actually reminds me to give them to her, was feeling ornery the other day and clawed me while I was giving her meds. Between the rose bushes and Sasha, my arms are all scratched up.

      2. Maya is better. Thank you for asking, Timothy. I am sorry about your arm. What’s wrong with Sasha?

      3. She has allergies and licks all the hair of her stomach if I don’t give her meds.

      4. I am so sorry to hear that Timothy. Yet she has you to take care of her. She is a lucky kitty-cat. Maya sends her treats.

    1. AW.. thank you so much Katy. You are the morning rose that brings happiness in my heart.

  3. Good morning G,

    Question: Is this Glass Lovers with a new name or is it another manuscript? I love this title. It is a title that sticks.

    Beautiful excerpt. Love the line there is no dinstinction between the two. That is the way it should be. Wonderful.

    1. Good morning Drew.

      Answer: It’s the same manuscript. I am just playing with titles. I am glad you like this one.

      Thank you for your praise. Taking the time to comment on my posts means a lot to me Drew.
      May the Muse be with you. May she always whisper words of love. May she always inspire you.
      Have a beautiful day.

      1. Smiling
        Yeah, I really like the title. I can see it in large bold letters on the big movie theater screen.
        Keep plugging away. (I know it’s a lonely task).

        Somebody better whisper something in my ear if I am going to write poetry again….UGH

        Have a gorgeous day. Stay safe.

      2. Oh, my … you will be the first to be invited. I am sure you have a tuxedo. You will look fantastic.
        I am sure you are going to find somebody to whisper inspiring words in your ear. Take a look around.

      3. Well, doctors have insisted I continue the quarantine, so no one whispering here but the walls. LOL

        Tux ready for you. Hopefully, by then we won’t have to social distance.

      4. “so no one whispering here but the walls” What can I say? It is not easy. Anyway you have to stay in. It’s not a good idea to go out.
        “Hopefully, by then we won’t have to social distance.” I’ll make sure we won’t πŸ™‚

  4. Brilliant words beautiful Button! I simply love this. No love is perfect, there is no such thing as we are imperfect humans. We take the bitter with the sweet and find a place in between where we fit and fit we do, if we are in fact blessed. So much truth you have captured in this exquisite work.

    “During the nights in which the moon is glossy and crisp like the crust of a country bread, the woman’s body gives birth to mountain chains and fragrant valleys.” This line is so beautiful Button.

    You tease us with this excerpt and of course we want more . . . If this is an example of what we have to look forward to I can hardly wait.

    Sending you much love and hugs my dearest, yours honeybun xoxoxoxo

    1. My Dearest Honeybun,
      Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your beautiful comment.
      “We take the bitter with the sweet and find a place in between where we fit and fit we do, if we are in fact blessed” Isn’t that true? Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts with me.

      6. Oh Button I forgot to tell you I was blessed to get published by Spillwords again, on the 11th. I usually let you know but I forgot this time. It is called β€œSummer Lie” and I think you might like it. Reading for your vacation.

        Hehe, nothing like sharing your accomplishments with someone who encouraged you so much. Be safe on your vacation. Listen to some great music and entertain your friends with your prose. I hope there is water where you are going so you can get wet in this heat.

        Love, hugs and blessings beautiful Button. Yours, honeybun
