You are

You are the ink that runs in my quill
Becoming the colors that my dreams spill.
You are the letter that shapes my word
Spanning the page like wings of a bird.
You are the thought that fills up my sense
You are the longing that is so immense.
You are the breath that escapes in a sigh
You are the memory in my mind's eye.
You are the peace that whispers in my heart
The oxygen that gives my heart a start .
You are the tear that I hold in my eye
You are the yearning I cannot deny.
You are the rhyme in my April sky
The twinkle in the stars that pass me by.
You are the light in the black of my eyes
You are the answer to all of my why's.
You are the arms that embrace me tight
Together in a love so infinite.

  1. So much love in your words; you seem to have it or want it, at a deep level. Yearning can call forth the emotions, but embracing can release emotions and words that reflect them. Whatever the condition that spawns your work, you are blessed.

      1. Really? I had no idea you felt that way. You spawn love with every poem you write. Are you on a desert island of blind and dim people? You deserve more than a response to your love, you should have the complement.

  4. I really love the anaphora, it’s so clever and yet so gentle, like a reminder to your reader of intention that everything you are describing is utterly, irreplaceably them. It creates this intimacy that I love! Can’t wait to read more.

  5. Whomever you’ve written this for, whether they are in the past, the here and now, or the come to be… they now have a poem to keep over their heart, that expresses love in words that are profound.

      1. Yes, but perhaps in that moment, that person needed loving, and needed the type of love that only you could provide. If we can look past the pain that comes with an ending, we can perhaps remind ourselves that we never quite know the depth of our affect on another. That person may not even realize, until years later, how profoundly we have moved them.

      2. Thanks Yassy, I enjoy your poetry – your imagery never ceases to amaze me! We’ve met online and I just read this again today which resonates “You don’t meet people by accident. There is always a reason. A Lesson. Or a Blessing.” Peace and blessings! πŸ™‚
