Locked  in  Time

I'm  feeling  strange
very  weak  ...  like
floating  in  time
no  itch  ...  no  twitch
lost  memories  climb
Eternity  slips
to  tireless  eyes
while  dreams  of  past  moments
awake  my  surprise
All  sense
like  a  dream
all  fragrance  ...  from  mind
your  touch  ...  I  remember
your  love
locked  in  time
In  blackness  ...  a  bloom
realities'  fright
I'm  lost  in  my  doom
in  my  death
blackest  night

This is certainly a worthy post.
Softly and tenderly done.

I liked the sound of this, maybe it is the haunting sound of Jim mOrrison, but it could certainly be put to music. Very enchanting writing

Well, I do love your witty poems but your romantic ones are great too! So maybe you could continue to write both!

Rex: Haunting and romantic. You evoke so much depth of feeling and put it all together in poetic bliss. Ellie

Summers haunting melody
that awakens
the butterflies,
calling them to join
the dance
in their silent song
of praise to God.

read it, loved it. A sense of love emanating from the softness of your dream.

not through itself,

dwelling within its bosom.
