blackbird and a dove

~

you are my blackbird 
   i am your dove
we cannot allow ourselves
to fall in love

i am locked in your eyes
like the moon to the sky
every star that shines bright
a softly placed sigh

when slowly the darkness
falls away like a feather
     my breeze, let me fly                      
we cannot be
together

I think those are very nice and simple rhymes. Simple as in puzzle ends going perfectly together. Your use of the moon, sky, and stars seem fresh, not overused, like taking an old idea and refurbishing it. Shines brighter on the second viewing. I prefer this type of love/lost poetry. It rings truer to me than the vomit I'm used to seeing. CD

If only we were never given the knowledge we are different, we would all be obliviously happy. But it would never work, cats would tear all our feathers out and we'd all be in bits... Just like we are, but without the need of serious amounts of superglue to stick all those feathers back on.
Maybe our ideal world would be lived in a childs drawing., where a bird is just a bird and we can all slide down rainbows.
Yep, that one gets my vote 😀

Dear Ana Papaya
With the desire for Mankinds racial tensions to be eliminated, perhaps these two slightly different members of the same species may also express the same hope and find a way to cross their restrictive border, finding unending love, romance and deep devotion together?
He hoped.
Although that divorce rate seems to continually climb

I love your comment and how you interpreted. Thank you, Dave. :)
It sucks being ….

deeply in love with the first stanza.

There are several reasons why I am attracted to your writing. The things we could make with eachother is objectively spectacular. I'm a Tori Amos fan myself. You either don't know what you're doing or literally have zero taste. Good luck with... whatever you decide to do.

You're such a p***y.

In poetry, partings are, typically, sweet-sorrow; in reality, such abrupt departures produce
countless flocks of sad and bewildered blackbirds.
Pretty piece.

Yes, so true. Thx for that Jimmy.
Love need not always be about togetherness. Sometimes, flying away is equally about love as the other option. A very wise poem this is. Beautifully, softly expressed too...

Dove and the Blackbird. Can fly and so different. I liked the yearning and honest ending. Thank you dear Ana for sharing your amazing poetry.
