You in Yourself

You in Yourself

A Poem by Neva Flores Smith - Changefulstorm
"

You in yourself treasure your secrets...............

"




You in yourself,

treasure your secrets

inside a trance,

as your greatest work of art.

You lay them down  

as your reality

among the colorful leaves

then let them lie….

to your heart.

 

I simply wait

as your diamond

for you to turn the pages

of my body

while you sing.

I’m left dreaming of your smile

within a roaring tide

believing your time….

is everything.

Wonderful, Neva.

"You in yourself,
treasure your secrets"

Perceptive and wise lines. Short and to the point. Message direct and powerful. Liked it a lot.

Best wishes,

Rick

A beautiful poem dear Poet.
"I’m left dreaming of your smile

wow that last stanza..."i wait as your diamond...for you to turn the pages of my body"

wicked stuff....

i like the point of view shift from third to first...we look inside ourselves? that is where we can find love...where we want to find both love and acceptance...

"You in Yourself" is a great title for this poem.

"among the colorful leaves
then let them lie….
to your heart."

I like the possible pun on the word "lie" here. Wonderful poem.
