blue-blooded dreams

Poetry will grace the pages to never fade
Memories of souls that played in love's glade.

When tears and heartbeats become one
Two breaths blend in one haven.

Hold my words close to your heart
Feel their warmth, let the pain depart.

The ink drains my quill to moisten your eyes
They touch your lips and feel your sighs.

The page I write on, holds my soul's fire
I pour out my heart and never tire.

My quill weeps words I cannot say
Eloquence in a glorious way.

I give everything of me in my poetry
Without wanting anything back, I have stayed free.

The blue of my ink runs in my blood
Hear my blue-blooded dreams crooning a ballad.

  2. One grouch: (and I do so – even today – with Juice (Bruce Jewett) as well: consider first line edit to: “Poetry will grace the pages never to fade” may be a foible of mine – split infinitives, but I feel is flows visually and well as auditorially, and strengthens “to fade.” Senthumbly with deepest admiration for yet another great piece, Yassy.

  3. I just realized I pulled a boner on an haiku comment on Bruce’s Haiku 1947…instead my proffered last line of “so thou pullest not,” I will correct with “so, pullest thou not” I will take my fake pendant and go correct that blot and then return soonest dear lady.

  5. “When tears and heartbeats become one”
    This expresses very well sadness within love.
    The exceptional image you have created will stay strongly in the reader’s mind.
    “My quill weeps words I cannot say”
    Again, sadness within love. Words unsaid are cried by the writer’s pen.
    The strong image again locks the sentence in the reader’s mind.
    Your imagery is very, very strong Jasmine.

  6. Oh yeah!
    Uhh, you are so expressive with words.
    The poetry of a honey-soul.

    Forever free in body, mind and spirit
    Dream me through the trees and into the blue
    Past the stars
    Dream me to you
    No fear I am just…

  7. I have been missing your beautiful words, but this lovely work has fed my addiction for the moment. The offered first line edit in the comments above works, but your original wording works just as well, so it should be about your preference. I love the use of couplets throughout. And, your subject, the pouring of one’s self into their words, is so easily relatable and delivered with your usual lyrical flow and powerful words. Another well deserving poem, Yasmin!
