Everything was you

 

Waking up alone. Booze, blood and nothing is all I got.

I have gone crazy and I have found peace in my loneliness. You were my everything. I was your mountain and you were my valley and ridges I needed to feel near.



I tell the young people. Love is costly. You pay with blood and die in the wounds of love.

Lovers love, lovers die
Lovers dance and sing, lovers cry and separate.



I saw paradise in your eyes once and I felled and pray for forgiveness in the view of your hazel green eyes. You brought heaven to my skin, my mouth and to my heart. You taught me loving was dying, dying was loving. When you open new doors and give all. You leave nothing left except for the shallow grave later.



You told me. Don’t fail me, don’t leave me and show me you need me. Tell me I’m everything to you. You will die to keep our love alive. Tell me, I’m your first and last breathe my sweetheart.



I loved to watch you dress and undress. I liked your eyes. You knew you controlled my mind and heart. I loved watching you drop the red dress and slowly taking off each red shoe off. Telling me to play Leonard Cohen song again “A million kisses deep again.” Dancing to the music making me swim in the beauty of your longs legs and making me  want your body near and kisses upon my lips.



I remember you whispering to me. Read and write words for me my dark Poet.

‘Don’t forget me, dear lover.
Please remember me in sweet dreams.
Lover, friend and companion in our wild world.
Love me right, love me wrong.

love me till the morning light.
Make me want more. Please tattoo sweet kisses on secret places.
Make me come alive and wild.
I want to be nude and free with you.
You are the fire and I’m the wood.”



In sweet dreams we were the perfect lovers. Stayed together. We didn’t allow the world to separate us. Today I accept less. The booze, the blood and the loneliness in okay.

Bleeding for love is what love is.


You made me know utopia and hell, you made me laugh and dance with joy and happiness. Then you taught me love is balanced on threads and needles. Broken easily and forgotten for some.



You are my darkness and you were my light. Dark Poet learned.
Love is sweet and can be painful too.

Where are you now sweet lover?

You must inspire many female reviewers to sigh a little or more when reading your poetry, john! You have a wise insight into how love and life should be expressed.. gently,passionately but with discrete respect! You fought hard, bloody wars but are rarely if ever bitter or cynical.. you've learned how to treasure bliss and kisses then smile the words into being. Beautifully laid, gently felt.

This resonated with me, with the conception of a Love that is wildly passionate but may not last. Learning from the experience is good and bad.

That verse was masterfully written and evoked many emotions within me.

The Dark Poet. I really like that...

Damn fine poem, Trickster! ;)

"Love is balanced on threads and needles"....how true this is...and often it can not be resewn once it is torn apart. Every love changes us....we learn even as we go in separate directions. There is such gentle tenderness in your writing, my friend. Lovely. Lydi**

Thank you Julie. Leonard Cohen. The Poet of song is missed.
The journey isn't always about a destination. Sometimes life chooses paths for us that lead us to other roads. Very warm words to read, sad and sensitive. I enjoyed.

Thank you Fabian. Good to see your face on my site my friend.
If there is someone who can write about love and in particular lost love; better than you; I have yet to find them. You plumb the depths of your life. Which is as it should be.
