Poetria's Creed

A Poem by Light
"

Behind the Words...

"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~**~~~~

Spare me
from humanity's greed
gift me 
a place closer to heaven,
enraptured in the universe's arms  
saved, drifting swiftly 
My being is warm
I'm sprinkling like
the calm raindrops.

Release me from
the ground, 
higher the spirit 
though, my soul is wounded
still the brightness of my heart
I will sacrifice,
I have a reserve of Love
where the fountain of affections
ever pounding,
so when the world falls 
I will birth my throbs
for earth, to rise again.

Embrace me,
my faithful entity 
and rescue me
from my raging tides,
I breathed the sigh of divinity 
from His lips, into my roots
a little He knew
a little He knows 
and now I think of me
Who am I?

I'm a thought
a thought that feels
that abounds and sings 
You don't have to like my words
or understand,
and how many still are there
dreaming to print my heart,
to affect You 
to impress You
how many verses still are there 
to love You.

When I'm floated away 
Read me again
and leave heavens
to shed my prayers
then, emerge me from Joy
in wondrous forms 
and know that Love
isn't in the beauty of my words
but Love is,
in the thumps taking the lead
of my heart, unto Yours
that I'm not the dream
but the reality 
dwells in the miracle of
Your breathing sound.

Featured Review

Behind the words indeed. I really enjoyed the flow of this piece, which looks beyond the words and what they say about us. No matter the words, we only see an imprint of the person behind them, when they are infinitely more than the brief moments we feel your words.
I think we have grown so used to instant gratification, that it is almost impossible for anyone to have time to see what is behind the pen.
Pity really. We never learn.
Beautifully penned, thought provoking write.

This is a hymn to love and a prayer to one person in particular but one also that all with any romance can associate with.

I believe Your words are true, thank You for Your kind visit and thought, much appreciated.
Beautiful prayer...
Appealing, endearing and captivating...
And this stanza
Release me from
The ground
Higher the spirit
though, my soul is wounded
still the brightness of my heart
I will sacrifice
I have a reserve of Love
Where the fountain of affections
ever pounding
So when the world falls
I will birth my throbs
for earth, to rise again

Is mind blowing.......

The exact meaning of this poem eludes me, but the words were so crisp and beautiful that I didn't care. Very well written. This is what a poem should be.

What can one say to such ethereal wonderment, GH?
I've no adequate words to express such deep emotion or sensational flowing of thoughts and feelings your words rush throughout my being, except to say this is more than mere magick to my senses, tugging upon the tender tendrils of my heart and soul.

Bless you the loving spark that brought your words to life, that speaks in such a way only the spirit can hear and understand, as does mine ever-so deep and true … most gracious and grateful hugs to you, Dear Poetess! ⁓ Richard ✨

An amazing soliloquy to life and beyond life in words that flow and float like gossamer ribbons. A prayer, a plea, a song of self and muse and struggle with the pain and sadness of this world. A rose that bleeds. Magnificent poem. Brava
