THE DEEPEST NEED

THE DEEPEST NEED

A Poem by M. L. F.

January winds rushed through her hair

To Heaven she gazed in prayer

The depths to which she needed to go

Subterranean, two thousand layers

below the surface of shallow place

where the soul waits for him -alone

An ocean waiting for the one

waters raged, wind chilled to the bone

Heart calling to it's other half, Heart calling through the storm

His heart, her twin, the missing half that her soul now pulled toward

And staring high upon those stars, on Heaven her heart transformed

As God commanded Heaven's stars to assure she's no longer alone

The stars then told her he too waits, that he too sits out in the cold

Head down that night, neath Heaven's Gate, for the twining of their two souls.

Beautiful, deep and meaningful piece.
I like this very much! The mother in me feels this more as a maternal love... that soul deep love whether romantic or maternal will always call for the other and transcends realms and time.
Memorable words you give. Regards Ray

How beautiful it would be, if we truly had someone out there who was the other half of our soul...I've stopped believing in that, but I do know some people find that person. This piece captures that need, in all its desperation and beauty. Nicely done.

A wonderful tale of a poetic dance that moves with the ever changing seasons of Love, Love lost, and finding Love, or maybe its about something else... ;) love the Subterranean Line, somehow this piece pleases me, well done my friend, very cool, EG.
