I'll take care of you

I'll take care of you

A Poem by Coyote Poetry
"

For dear Daniela.

"
                         I'll take care of you
Longing, belonging and believing.
Love was life, life was love.
I learn,
bleeding, screaming and the damn whiskey can't kill the memory.

Once, with a single kiss.
We made promises we couldn't keep,
you were the wild sea and I was the standing mountain.

Once we danced in tantalized nights,
made the day become night,
we held the illusion of love, endless and forever.

We were drunk in love,
the blindness of youth,
made us want everything and nothing.

You told me once,
I will take care of you.
Keep you, safe and sound.

No-more, too late, a farewell written in the midnight hour.
I remember, she wore a dress of silk.
The most beautiful girl I ever saw.

Now the nightingale song remind me,
love can be sweet and divine,
love can be dark and still.

The parting song,
I do remember,
broke my heart forever.

When love died,
never died easy.
We shall bleed till we cannot no-more.

                           Dancing Coyote

Love runs deep here when the whiskey can't numb it. Young love, a new experience transporting you to places where you have never been before. Feelings you have never experienced before. The passage of time doesn't erase those memories. All those things you said to each other, you meant at the time you said them. You spoke the truth. Beautiful poetry that touches my heart this autumn morning.

In this fathomless universe only a few have the capability to make our heart beat.. The same few also poses the ability to break one's heart. Longing forever for the lost love is a sort of intoxication in itself..
Beautiful expression of joy of love and the pain of parting :)

dear John... dancing in tantalized nights... is a

Some people, we cannot forget. I do agree and thank you dear friend for reading and the comment.
Romantic love can be an infection hard to cure. And never easy to forget. It took me ten years to forget an old crush once. It fades but lingers for so long.

Always an interesting poem from you, Coyote.
