What else is there
for me
but to yearn for you?
To think
of your soul
in rhyme
with mine?
For months
the thought of you
will leave
then return
so subtly
to flood me again
till I drown
bereft
I am sorrowed
to know
you'll never leave
me
a thread
will tie you to me
a thread
I cannot cut
Sever
you I would
if peace I could have
yet peace
perhaps
is shallow next
to the want of you
you are my cup
of life
my cup of passion
I take of you from the air
with my every breath
my friend, my love
my only mate of the soul

In a "perfect world," all must not be perfect.
Yet I think you come close with your words, painting an auric picture with your words of love and peacelessness.

I take of you from the air
with my every breath
rom my heart..."

Severn....I thought I had replied to this, but was mistaken. So, now my reply, better late than never I guess. I really enjoyed this piece....It is one I can definately relate well too. It speaks softly of romance and roars loudly with thoughts of love....beautiful!

This poem is a flood of words that seem to fall fast and drown the mind in some quick song. You envision well. Your style has its own uniqueness that I like very much.

Hoot - thankyou! Romance is paltry next to the truth of this!
