A Kiss From the Stars


  A kiss from the stars in sky of night
Healing kisses sent aloft in the wind
Searching for the love hidden in fright
Two hearts bonded as one would intend

Destiny calls out once in the voice of dance
Fate calls out twice in the patter of heavens tears
Lost heart with soul in the hands of time given chance
Falling softly against the walls of yesterday's fears

A kiss and a hug bringing peace to your thought
Of the sins cast upon you through centuries of lust
The love that you need is the one that you have fought
The love that stands behind you begging for your trust

Ease out the terror buried deep among the measures of pain
Renew your heart and your dreams in the sky of the night
In the us all of your demons and ghosts will be slain
Walk forward with heart as you head toward the light

Angel kissed destiny written among all the fallen stars
Tender love wrapped in blankets of this mornings dew
Heaven's pure blessings massaging all your old scars
As on this day you awake...with me in love with you

Mr. Bohannan, if you continue to pen poetic passion such as this...none of the ladies here will ever be able to compose again...

"As on this day you awake...with me in love with you"

This is incredibly lovely Mark! You've woven such tender words of love and trust, begging to be received and taken in their genuine offering. What beautiful words you've penned in this!  

Best wishes,

MarkB~
These are exquisite thoughts -

'Destiny calls out once in the voice of dance
Fate calls out twice in the patter of heavens tears
Lost heart with soul in the hands of time given chance
Falling softly against the walls of yesterday's fears


Tenderly and beautifully done, my friend.
Easy to hear your heart talking !

It is poetic and just that the LAST reply I do in here for awhile be to this poem...
I promised you the most honest read I've ever given you ...
Well then Mark Christopher, poet and healer of my soul ...
I think this is my favorite to date and one of your best ...
it was written with your heart and soul devoted ...not your poets pen.
I wish you could have seen the smile on my face --
as I read the lines above that I marked with **
I have seen the light you offer ...
I have grown and healed in its glow
I believe in you ...
my gift to you in return would be ...
that you see your self thru the eyes
of those who love and know you best...
two of which are mine ...
Thank you for the peace you sent to me in the wind lastnight ...
and for holding my hand in my lost moment ..
About 4 this morn ...I went for a drive ...
I saw the stars for the first time in a very long time ...
I saw your smile there too.
No one wants {this} more for you than me
somethings are meant to be ...
I love you MC...
thank you for defining friendship in my heart.
Like I keep telling ya cowboy ...
you are so cool.

There are places inside our souls -
that have never been touched.
There are places inside our hearts -
that need to be loved this much.

Mark*
Between you and me...weekends suck baby!!
And missing the chance to read this
beautiful poem until now is one MORE reason
for that opinion    
This is beautiful...all your work touches my
heart deeply but this one is in a class
alone.  Your heart and soul are poured into
every line and the beauty of them shines
through...you are such a tender sweet
man..your poetry would shows that...but I
already knew

Mark,

    I'm so glad I stopped in to read.  It is a beautiful heart and soul felt poem.  I don't know how you manage to wear your heart on your sleeve everytime you post a poem.. but everyone can see it so clearly. Simply beautiful.

Mark, this is the poem that every woman who has had to endure betrayal of love, trust and heart should have written for her. I know you didn't write it for me, and please forgive me, but for just these few minutes, I pretended it was mine, and I felt what it might be to feel loved. Thank you...your lady is blessed.

Mark,
This was so very touching and heart felt. I think for me, not that I don't love all that you write, but this was my favorite. It has touched me in more ways then I care to explain.  You have a beautiful heart and you have written it well. I am so very glad I got to read this.......Take Care my friend.
Thank you..for bringing such beautiful color....
