Imprisonment



The soft, moist, mingling whispers
silently falling from our lips,
hands grasping through the smooth worn bars,
our clutching fingertips.

The need for us to reunite,
our psyches to enfold,
to end this torture of our minds,
to free our shackled souls.

What wicked fate has placed us here,
this barrier in between
true lovers' selves that seek to fuse,
to merge, to bind, to dream?

What evil, loathsome, sullen force
has cast us on each side of
these chilling bars of steel remorse
in these cells where passions hide?

Dear LadyClaire

Very deep and very sweet  
I can relate to this in many way`s.
Remember that their are no bars that can
divide a love thats as special as the
one that the two of you share.
Thanx for sharing this Claire
And God Bless you both.

Joel...deep and sweet? Now "that's" poetry!
I thank you for reading, but it's just a poem. That is all. Mere imagination from a simple mind.

It may be just a poem but it's not from a simple mind. Well written, Muse.

Balladeer stole my immediate thought - not a simple mind...great imagination here!

This is excellent - again...
