My Love
It is here in this tent
now pitched on rocky slope
leading to the foothills
of Kuh-i-Nuh that I too
will pass the veil
of this world and into
the garden Of Allah.

I saw you again
last night as the moon
shed dim light on the silk
of this shelter.

Your beauty filled this weak soul
with a desire to once again
be in the prime of us
and know the joys that came
from the bond of flesh
and mind.

I thought your hand
in soft touch on my brow
when the air I would breathe
refused my lungs and I labored
to remain one more sunrise
in this temporal world.

I am here,
and now as sun rise floods
I know the ark of my soul
was always you

You are still
my refuge and strength


My eyes grow dim
and I tire
but before I put down
this pen a final time
I would write to you
of my love
my heart
and those lives past
which we must have shared
in our own cosmic search
for the other half

I will bring you flowers
when I arrive
for the poppies are now
in full

and I
return
to you

YOU poet sir are AMAZING!!

the moth is giddy from the intensity and emotional depth of this write

No matter what the differences
No matter what the cost
When words become our weapons ...
All that's beautiful is lost.

This has a spiritual twist to it, I'm sure... I don't think you gave enough clues to be conclusive (if you did, I didn't see them), but I think this one is probably written to God or some such spiritual manifestation... although I could be wrong, this could just be a powerful love poem.  It's so hard to tell... why do you have to be so mysterious all the time?  

All in all I love this... I noticed your mention of the tent, and the garden of Allah, is this an expanse on the pilgrimage metaphor that you used in "To Not Journey Now?"  Would this poem be along the same lines, maybe...?  Or is it just a theme that's influencing your writing lately?

Either way, this is great poetry Mr Hair.  I'm loving the stuff you've been posting lately...

Remember what I asked you?

You did it.  This one is it.  Even though I didn't want you to write "the end" you managed to accomplish what we discussed.  

Bravo.

Midnite... no need to be sad.. all things end in time and their own place.. as much a part of living as life itself.

Ms Devine... thank you dear lady for the kindness and the kind words.

JM... amazing? LOL.. hardly my dear... just an ending piece I had not posted for the series I had been writing... and I am afraid nothing of real originality or talent, just a progression of the idea.. but thank you so.. for thinking so.

Sud... thank you sir.. spellbinding is perhaps a strong term to use let's say mildly interesting.. lol.. I'd hate to have to live up to spellbinding..

Parasite... I sent you an e-mail and answered a few of the questions..
thank you for the read and the nice words.. greatly appreciated my friend.

Susan..LOL.. sorry..I hardly think so..but sweet of you to say.. thank you.. sincerely.

Yanno... you've finally mastered what so many have attempted... the ability to leave me speechless. *S* Beautiful!!!

I must say, I haven't read enough of you! This is so beautiful... I think it is a love poem to his wife, not so much to God. (but any 'analysis' that I give is a guess at best!) At any rate, I really love this.. especailly the end where he says he will bring her flowers. Great write.

Oh, make me Thine forever
And should I fainting be
Lord, let me never ever
Outlive my love for Thee

Quiet sensuality always fits...
