Creation #poem #prose poem #short prose #book manuscript

How beautiful you made my loneliness with your love letters and your ceaseless colors that burn my eyes every time I look at them.

I am forever in your power because I was brought into this world by your imagination. I am your creation.

I feed on the same sea that nursed us when we were children.

I am the glue that holds together the baked sands stuck on your skin during torrid endless summers.

Sometimes I look like a four-leaf clover sitting on the lapel of your black coat on the 15th of every month.

Other times when it is dark you call me Selena and you make my twelve fingers knead your ecstasies and plant them in whispering tombs.

Your desires are the stage on which I dance, my hair unbraided, my first youth gone, my death date undetermined yet.

I thought nothing was about me. Everything was about you and your mind with its powerful sounds of rapid waves and its one thousand boats anchored in the same port.

Yet at 9am in the morning you said something that made me believe you became possessed by your own creation.

Green deep waters.

Is that true?

      1. My absolute pleasure friend. I’ll write a better comment soon. I haven’t begun, the last week’s been pretty busy. I guess I’ll start now.
        Have you?

      2. Hello my dearest friend
        Please don’t worry about a better comment. I understand busy. I am snowed with work.
        We put some Halloween decorations outside but that’s about it. I have to think about the rest. But I need time to think about ๐Ÿ™‚ For the moment I don’t have that time.
        Sending love
        Take care
        xoxoxo..

  1. Button this is so magical. I love the gorgeous picture you have so eloquently painted here.

    โ€œYour desires are the stage on which I dance, my hair unbraided, my first youth gone, my death date undetermined yet.โ€

    I particularly love this part perhaps because I feel I understand that feeling.

    Truly beautiful.

    Love, hugs and continued inspiration for these lovely mystical pieces.

  9. Hey, thank you for your lovely words. I will be more than glad to read your posts when I can. As for following lots of people demand me to follow them every day. It does not work that way. Do you follow me? As far as I can tell you do not. Perhaps I am mistaken.

      1. Donโ€™t worry about. I will read your work anyway when I will have time. You are still not following me. Thatโ€™s ok. I donโ€™t need more followers. I need to be in touch with people who are talented and have a big hearts. Enjoy the rest of your day and have a fabulous weekend.

    1. Thank you so much for your beautiful comment. You are right. Relationship are never static โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ
