Surreal Love

Surreal Love

A Poem by Silmara McGarry



Between the gracefulness of butterflies, 
and the enchanting sweet colours of 
a warm spring morning, delivered in the 
most surreal dance, lays my Love for you.

Between the storms in the sky and the blue 
lights that surround the angels in heaven, 
mesmerized by the look in your eyes, 
hypnotized by my Love for you.

Between each wave in the ocean, gripped by 
the motion of fresh winds and one thousand 
innocent pearls, in the hands of the singing 
mermaid, breathing calmly, sails my Love for you.

Between the fascinating birds in the forbidden
forest, sweeping around ancient trees, 
sheltering the intense heat that flows quietly 
across its glittering waters, hides my Love for you. 

Between the moon and earth, and stages of 
glowing stars, twinkling up the dark night 
with promises of light, and the great creations 
of God, reflects my Love for you.

Ohhh-MY, Dear Sil,
And, in Free Verse Quatrains … love it! : )
What a distinct honor and privilege it is to immerse mind, heart, emotions, and soul into such a moving and intricately woven expression of passion breathed out of your depths ⁓ into your fantasy lover's heart.
With genuinely unique and tenderly soothing (albeit stirring) poetic voice and deftly skilled power of stunning metaphorical imagery, combining, heaven, earth, and Nature, your ink sweeps through one's senses as smoothly and seamlessly as windblown silk undulating to the rhythms of a soft, warm summer breeze … and, beginning each verse with "Between" is a stroke of sheer genius that pulls us into every beguiling beginning, as tho' it's a romantic mystery unfolding.

Catching my breath, let me bow most graciously and gratefully in homage and thanks to you for sharing this emblematically gorgeous peek into your heart, thank you sincerely, Sil ⁓ Richard : )


Love the dreamy mood and feel of your picture choice, too!

I don't really care for the format of this poem or the references to God. No offense. ;)

But this is still damn beautiful in its imagery and word usage and the title is aptly named. The Sea is a powerfully intimate visual. 'Tis a sweet poem about the nature of love and I enjoyed it immensely.

Good job, Sil! :)

It's real easy to slip into clichés when there are a million love poems written every year. But in this case, your love poem is rich with unexpected comparisons & original-sounding ways of describing things that are familiar & relatable. I like the parallels between each couplet, starting with "between the . . . " which is one main reason your love poem sounds unique & uncommon. Rich imagery & good word choices.

this's very good. nice.
liked the way how truly, fantastically & thought provokingly you've dripped thoughts down in such gentle words... of love. it's definitely "surreal love" that's hardly understood 'cause... it's more like season that has countless tag-lines within it. lovely. very briefly said/written!

looking forward to reading your work!

A really well-thought piece. The repetition adds to the beauty of the poem. All the aspects of nature that you have intertwined with your feelings of love are really appreciable. Quite picturesque. Keep writing.
