To my dearest

To my dearest

A Poem by Mia
"

Love, that our love be this!

"

Ghost street myths hidden

With the stars that vanish

In the street lights

We are within each other

In places reserved for one

Where personal space is no longer

Our own

Freely taken

Will you stop with me,

For peace

Only a pause

Between our blinks

Freedom to close our minds

Smiling long enough

To warm our hearts

Taking time to look

At each other

Time has made us strangers

Time, bring us back

Shut your eyes with me

Praying

To disappear

Together

Alone

Living for the moments

Where

The wind just blows

Not to move us

Allowing us to feel it

Where

In existing here

We are enough

your line, "Time has made us strangers" stopped me in my tracks.

im trying to remember the last time thats happened, but i cant think of one.

it started pulling up a wave of emotion, it was startling.

my core was gasping, and i felt a surge rising up in my chest.

it subsided about a minute or so after, but for whatever reasons that have been going on in my life over the last year or so.. it was like watching someone jump off a cliff in to a swirling fog.

all the rest of the poem right after that line, just added to its brilliance.

"Where in existing here, we are enough"

I hope you know how special this piece is, and how extraordinarily significant the writer is that wrote it.

Love this write Mia , sometimes we don't realise that being here in this time and place is grace enough.

It's such a shame, that realisation would be such a gift to so many...myself included at times!

Somehow, this poem painted a vivid picture inside my mind of two beings, the same, yet so different. They are curled around each other, melding into a single form. They exist in separate bodies, yet can not be without each other....Your words are perfectly placed, striking the heart and soul!

Beautiful writing!

you're welcome..enjoy my other pieces, too;))
This is beautiful, Mia. Imagery is great. I could see a couple, separated by circumstance, together again, under a street light, looking into each others eyes, grasping hands, closing their eyes and just "being" together, feeling the wind and the love. Great write!

Oh, I love this one, Mia. I love all the lines. My soul's like in each word...in each line...in this whole piece. You and him...were enough. Your love for each other is enough.
So romantic yet emotional.

How you create such a melancholy vision that glances back across love's journey... the longing to be closer.. time tears at the fabric of us, but we can find ways of mending the broken places. So beautiful.

OK, so I read and reviewed your other piece and then came straight to this one.
I have an admission to make. I really struggle to read things aloud and as you can imagine that causes real problems for me performing my pieces. What I try to do is practice and when I read poetry to myself I always read aloud. I read this piece and the words just flowed straight off my tongue as they seemed to from your hand. I am envious of this poem because it is fantastic, and something I wish I could write myself. From the fantastic opening to the perfect ending and throughout you expressed in art what love is. In existing here we are enough.
Once again, welcome back :)
