T he questions of this day,
H earken to the unknown
E asily asked, yet...

D are I answer?

E ver have I shied away,
P iously avoiding
T ruth.

H iding, from myself

S ome are born to bear burdens
O thers, are forced to
F ear...
M atters of the mind

Y et ever do we...
S eek,
O nly to find no answers,
U nder the bridges of our minds

L ife's dealt it's blows
W inning with my grief
Incomparable though, to the pain of...
L ove.

L ove.
B arely a word, yet...
E ver does it echo the
Reality... of a true heart

E ver gripped by my mind,
A ccosted by demons, yet...
L ove, beckoned.
I rresistibly.

S tepping tentatively,
E ver the cynic
Daring the whirlwind,
O f her intensity

Never, in nine...
L ifetimes, could I have known, a
Y earning, so powerfully compelling,
W ithout even a touch.


H ow can this be?
E ven as I ask, I...
N otice,
I don't even care

A s was fated though,
My heart was captured,
F ires were cooled,
I ce was broken.

N ow I have no fear.

A s always,
L ove does not kill demons,
L ove only soothes them
Y es, they are calm,
W ell, calmer.
I fear though,
T hey will never be silenced.

H er heart is strong though,
M ine as well.

Y et apart, I am only a part.

S oon however,
T ogether,
Always,
R ealizing...wholeness, the true depths of my soul.

I truly despise acrostics but you do them well my friend and I am sure that your star will shine on you forever. Don't get burned by her embrace.

You have displayed shared dreams well, Chris.

Acrostic or no, this is a lovely poem! I love the sentiment of the acrostic also... you will have that realization soon, I'm sure.

I hope it's realised soon...don't think I can handle much more waiting!!!

Thank you all for your responses, and Michael...everytime I write something to my star, I realize it may be felt by others as well. You have done the same for me on more than one occasion!

Your soul reflects much beauty, and love hidden there, way beyond poetry, Somethings in the air?
Loved this romantic...beautiful poem!
