I am your soul – poem by Gabriela Marie Milton

I am your soul – poem [fragment]

look for me my love

my body shines like lightning

striking down from Mount Olympus

I’m the tremble of each tear

which poor hungry children shed

I’m the prayer of the lonely

the garden where the virgins blush

the mystic bite of occult ecstasies

I’m hidden in the Sistine Chapel

in haunted graveyards at midnight

I’m bursting from the keys of the piano

which plays alone Beethoven’s 5th

Spoken Word – Reading of Gabriela Marie Milton’s Poetry

I am humbled by Swarn’s [@theedemaruh] decision to read two of my poems: Prayer published by Free Verse Revolution, and I Want My Body Burned included in my poetry collection Passions: Love Poems and Other Writings.

Swarn captured and deepened the meaning of my poems. The tone and the execution of the readings are superb. They are a testimony of his great talent. While listening to his recitation I asked myself: Can he see into my soul? It certainly felt that way.

A note to you my dear readers. It is not about how many followers you have. It is about their quality. It’s about how they can enrich your life, and how you can enrich theirs.

As the song goes:
May you always do for others
And let others do for you

– Bob Dylan

Please listen to Swarn’s readings.
