A Part Of My Soul

A Part Of My Soul

A Poem by Giullia King


 I crave love.
  The deepest, purest, rawest form of love. 
  The kind of love where it hurts.
I crave you. 

My ray of light
You are the sunlight through the windows of my room.
  You are someone I can write about endlessly, 
  never getting tired of writing about how you are my sole galaxy in this dark universe.

  My beloved one, 
  I want to write about how every word that falls off your lips 
can put poetry to shame.

I'm always soft for you, 
you brought my stone cold heart to life.
I want to kiss you lazily like we have all the time in the world 
and also urgently, like there’s no tomorrow.
I may not be able to hold you in my arms forever, 
but trust me when I say;
you’ll forever be in my words,
 in my poetry, 
in my heart,
and always, a part of my soul.

I crave the love that doesn't hurt - the love that's always there - the love that will envelop us without expecting a single thing in return - the love that comes when you finally put aside your craving / wanting / need ... now that's an endless love

I like the sentiment of your poem ... best wishes for the muse X

This is a fine write, Giullia, which smacks of credibility. It has many rich lines and describes so many facets or shapes love may take. To feel them all for one person is a joyous thing to be treasured.

As is my wont may I offer two comments, but don't be in any doubt about how good I think this is and how much I enjoyed reading it and getting inside it. The two thoughts are
(1) The very first line sounds a bit desperate as though you happened upon someone who ticked all the boxes on an ache you already had. Personally I'd change it to finish with 'you' like the 4th line
(2) You brought my stone cold heart to life .... a fabulous line, but it contains the only past tense verb in the whole poem. It's clear why - they 'awoke' you and since then you've been on a different plane. So I get it. All I can say is, if it had been me, I would have been searching for a way to get the same notion across using the present tense - for me, it jarred ever so slightly.

I don't like the way my 'negative' comments take more space. I really like this poem and, frankly, I'm envious!

' .. I want to kiss you lazily like we have all the time in the world ~ and also urgently, like there’s no tomorrow. '

That is love: the YOU COMPLETE. That is what true, real, professed, shared love does - is what love makes one feel. Complete.

After reading your poem, I immediately added it to my favorites. I loved it! I have never come across a piece that so perfectly describes the intense longing and selflessness that comes with being in love. Wonderfully and masterfully done.

"You are the sunlight through the windows of my room."

Fav lines.

Emotive. Descriptive. Almost divine.

Maybe it's because I'm writing from a dark room myself and this made me briefly feel a light.

"I want to kiss you lazily like we have all the time in the world
and also urgently, like there’s no tomorrow."

I think this perfectly captures the scope of true love. The celestial and terrestrial. The poetic and prosaic.
