Once Last Voice,

The better part of me loves you still,
clings to the memories,
too distant now,
of warmth and support.

Knowest I, thou hast tried to console,
as I have tried to accept such.
But 'tis not enough
to keep that hidden part of mineself
from emerging.

And I now fear the visions
that swirl in mine head,
that cause mine heart to dance
at too fast a pace,
when thoughts of doing without
rise behind closed eyes.

Some say their love
is a "match made in heaven".
I shall have to wait for mine
'til then...


Your Lady Ollyne

A tender write of longing and patience. I really like this:

'And I now fear the visions
that swirl in mine head,
that cause mine heart to dance
at too fast a pace,
when thoughts of doing without
rise behind closed eyes'

Sir JamesM,
I believe, Sir, that
I will not find happiness
eternally in this world.
And am only fooling myself
and being fooled
into thinking so.
And I would rather
to mine ownself be true.

Lady Ollyne


Sir Magnus (I believe),
thank thee for thy time
and words. Encouragement
is wonderful when found
among others who have poetic dreams.

Lady Who Enchants,
Thank thee
for thy kind words *s


Lady of Heart and Friendship,
Time should only
allow me the love I seek
but never seem to find,
nor discovers the heart I have
and the truth I hold inside.
The world surrounds me in farce
and I accept that for now.

Tenderness
musn't be in at the moment
and truth
does not knock at my door.    
I thank thee as always,
from the depths of friendship.

Lady Ollyne


Lady of the Midnitesun
I have not the patience I should
and the longing grows daily
and the fears become greater
as they take their place
in mine heart.

Lady of Tears
Sometimes the side you see
is not the side
yet to be unveiled.  

thanking all

Lady Ollyne
