A Poem by Giullia King

She takes a deep breath and sighs. "Oh darling"  
She whispers into the darkness. 
"If our souls are made out of stardust, then how come my skin feels like a desert?"  
The depths of her soul lives in poetry, 
in a in-between world with him. 
"You're the brightness of a star,  
The magic in my life." 
"You're the only secret my heart guards."  
She says as she gently puts her arms around him and blissfully drifts off into infinity.

I love this sip of bliss you presented. True feelings have no time and space in their vocabulary... Lovely :)

The liminal spaces are elusive ones. Kudos to you for reaching for them. :)

There is always passion in your pieces. A passion that is hard to capture, yet you seem to grab it by the tail and hold it in your hands long enough for us all to see and experience it! As I read your pieces I must hold my breath because at the end I always have a a big exhale. Keep writing your passions down they carry me away to the stars above, it allows one to experience what is deep in the soul wanting to escape!
Well done once again!

It's wonderful how you captured feelings of the soul. Did you write this from ideas you received from the picture?

I feel a cold reality in this but because of the last two lines i can close my eyes and be swept away. Beautiful and magical words smoothly combined, great poem!
