the trace

the trace

A Poem by Light
"

does she kiss you, like I used to kiss you...

"

 

it takes a minute to miss You

to dwell in Your silence

dive then be rapt

by Your calmness.

 

at times I forget how to breathe

then Your vision whets   

stirring notions in my eyes;

of affections and sentiments

the kindness that craves me

to inhale again.

 

~

it took me a minute to love You

to worship You

You~ to be my God.

 

one minute

to lose it all...

 

my entity

did it fear You,

that she is expanding

beyond humanity's limitations,

that her Love is not written with kisses;

but with primal ink 

ethereal as the air, feminine as nature

wondrous as a breath. 

 

that she

will never die

she lives forever;

 

even that;


the ravage is destined

and I am damaged inside.

isolated, confirmed again,

I never was the human

I was the vintage traces

of heavens.

I'm not sure if I'm following everything about your nuanced poem, but it brings to mind a time, way back in the old days, when I used to require any relationship to be like this . . . totally heady, intoxicating, redeeming, reaffirming, & so on. Later I realized this was the mania in my bipolar mishmash making my decisions. It took years, but I got unhooked from the drama this kind of love seems to include. Your poem is expressed powerfully & seems to impart almost a craving or a desperation (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

like Margie, i go different directions with this...but there are so many good lines...but the last stanza is excellent..and that combination of spirit and humanity....and the hopefulness that the two can combine...
that there is more to us than a body and a brain.

This makes me feel sad and empty like i was waiting to open a bottle of wine for two years and i did and it tasted like vinegar. The anticipation was exhilarating but the hopes vastly underwhelming. So sorry for your pain. But a beautiful write

hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm so deep ....have to smile that its a "she" ;) what smacks me silly tho ... is the primal ... spark ...hidden inside all of us ...crusted over with our damage ... its a great and loving God indeed that ignites our chances to be redeemed ... i love where your poem takes me Light ... your "stuff" is a rewarding read for me!

Your words are beautiful, humans have a hard time separating love from the feelings it stirs within us.
True peace is birthed with that breath of living.

I m always blessed to read soulful lines by you dear light ......" my entity

did it fear You,

that she is expanding

beyond humanity's limitations,

but with primal ink

ethereal as the air, feminine as nature

wondrous as a breath. " Loved these lines !!

Wow, This is really good, the 5th stanza is really good with the primal ink and feminine as nature. A deep look into self and relationship, one that stirs the depths of the soul. Loved it!

My dear Light,
Some love is meant to be consummated in an earthly fashion and there is yet another love that is born to attain immortality by the ink, by the words and as you so brilliantly stated here, we expand beyond human limitations for that love to become a part of the Divine. I must give you a standing ovation for this poem. It’s so on point, so true and so relatable! Kudos, my friend 💕
