Because of You

Because of You

A Poem by Perdition

I find an uncommon mystery, 

a gaze behind her eyes

silent as the morning and tiny fawns at leap

crossing the summer's hungry wet field


In this world the young hide too deep for heaven

too dark in the fire's light for the flames to mend  

The first moment into a kiss is attached to a lifetime 

Awakening in sleepy-eyed petals that can consume the mind, 


I cannot be right to feel this way

I cannot be right to feel at all

whispering out the beauty from just her name


in the summer we are mindful from a distance

clouds dividing our only hope

 and so the gift is dawn, though


we are seeping through the wood  

melting through the sound we utter whenever we are not 

yet apart is a courage in living

it is the shelter we build when God is away

and the winter's wind becomes the hammer


the sound of love dying is a fawn hard at breath at the end of the year and God watching down from my shoulders 

I wish she could understand what I see before the year is over.

Well you are really putting that out there, aren't you...before the end that is so near...but will she ever? Not if you keep kissing her in whispers.lol I must admit this wip in the final stage was indeed more powerful because today it brought an unending emotion that makes your pieces great. Thank you for the share in vulnerability.

HOW IS THIS HELPFUL?!!..lol. Crunch your song toast gator..crunch your sung~
And yet, we feel...

The days are a bit brighter when seen through these eyes, the nights a bit warmer, knowing she cares. And even if it's only a dream, what a beautiful dream it is.

I don't think it's only lost to youth, but can be sustained throughout a lifetime, should one be so fortunate.

Love this one...

I will now see what I can do.

Aloha,

Alisa ;-)

None discovered a word beyond love yet? Cause I wanted to use that for expressing how I feel bout this piece and the image!
This one's like coaxing oneself with sweet and precious memories in depression... real and soulful lines been knitted here.
A thank you for writing this and a wish "have a great day!" :)

I don't see any need for a (wip), here all is laid unselfishly to us with sincerity and Your own way of serenity. in these few special lines You've painted Your own private world, the pain, the wonderment, the ongoing wandering, that very gentle side of You, Your ever keen eyes and mind, the bliss, being hurt yet blessed... I love this... it touches us inside with a rare kind of tenderness, and that PHOTO! well... it speaks more than I could.
