A Chapter of Love

Your love to me-- a portal
It moves me when you’re close,
When lost,
--It brought you closer.
.
.
.

O’ how I cried
Louder
More prolific
Then any call at Jericho,
No biblical chant
Neither wail nor sorrow
A plea!
A request to stand
And open wide for me,
And of what, to whom do I cry!
Do I compare?
Do I dare to speak of reasons for loving, then,
In my own way... I will try.
.
.
.
You are so forgiving-
To one who knows so little
Of love,
And loving,
Each day a new way
Teach me, preach to me if able
For I wish to learn;
In my life
You have become a book
Its pages you turn,
Sometimes- -
I take the initiative
And with apprehension, I look!
Every page a smile, within the lines
A heart
--Leave it open-
So I may write,
I’d start
With one phrase!
And no more would I pen
--Save for a kiss.
.
.
.

Down, down I fell
Further still
A self- imposed self-righteous well,
Deeper still did you fall, to expose the reasons
The anguish and sorrow
My legions of despair,
Yet, with calls of sanctuary
And arms of compassion
I found you waiting there.


At times when deaf to all
Not knowing
Un-showing to romance and it’s melodious call
You sang,
O’- - and how you played,
With charm and tender light it rang
And within its beat your heart relayed
A new sense to this desolate man,
So stay
Play and sing-
That melodious call
And I with praise
An applause of emotion
A golden ring…

And now
As before
With the pages open
Do I write some more,
For together in hand
We stand at the portal’s door
And moved as I am, a few words I’ll say,
--Move close
--Closer still
--Breathe,
Breathe with me be with me
And together as legends we’ll stay.
For this chapter
Its movement and harmony
As one
…We write together.


U K Hero

Thanks for the music Caroline.

I'm not clever enough to understand everything you managed to include in this poem but I can see and appreciate all of the work and thought that went into its creation and I applaud you, UK.

This is incredibly beautiful, you know...from beginning to end, it is perfect
Flows like music, it does.

I was impressed (no impressed is not the word) with the form of this. It just took me in. This may sound strange...but sometimes I look at the form of a poem and let my mind see how the words make a shape...kind of like a Rorschach ink blot test. I know..that sounds really crazy but try it...
