glide

what
benefit
has your love
so quiet and fearful,
dormant in its shrouded heart?

please
don’t believe
the pale vocabulary
of this ambivalant world,
silence, its own sharp betrayal.

and what
benefit has my
abundant heart if
not sharing our pain?

i am
not afraid
of your fear.

reach then,
reach for my hand
the true sky is waiting.
couple these hearts together
and we can glide above this fray.

    Wonderfully scripted from mind to heart language!
    “I am
    not afraid
    of your fear”
    not many can feel those words…
    exquisite…
    Thank you for sharing them…
    Take Care…

    • thank you ladyblue, you humble me with such a beautiful reply to my words. and yes, ‘from mind to heart’ is where this poem came from, that perfect white space where there is nothing but my feelings.

      thank you again and keep the::::light::::

    Amazing. My favourite part : “please don’t believe the pale vocabulary of this ambivalant world, silence, its own sharp betrayal.”

  3. This is one of my favorite from you :)…just fantastic!!!

    • well, i will tell you that i don’t often read my words after i write them, but i find myself drawn back to this as if it were written by someone else.

      it’s hard to explain but thank you as always, being so generous with your compliments. 🙂

  4. there’s nothing of pallor in your writing or desire to give away freely your own fears despite you not having fear of HER fears. Excellent !

  5. This is so good! I really like this part:

    please
    don’t believe
    the pale vocabulary
    of this ambivalant world,
    silence, its own sharp betrayal.

    Blessings,
    Theresa

    • that was written for my first poet friend here on WP, she was doubting her writing ability because her husband and family totally ignored her work. she is thankfully still writing poetry today despite not having any encouragement at home, it was a favorite of mine for a while.

      the rhythm you are feeling is the tempo of the music i wrote the poem to,
      i always write to music and many times like yestertday’s post, include it
      ty for being so perceptive and generous with your time Theresa.
