As If - You Wrote the Book of Me

As If - You Wrote the Book of Me

A Poem by Neva Flores Smith - Changefulstorm
"

You read me as if you wrote the book of who I am............

"



Who else could possibly understand me the way you do?  You read me as if you wrote the book of who I am. Despite the fact, sometimes I travel where darkness presses against the sun, laying down nothing when morning warms the sweetness of life.  


On those days, when time casually says I am crazy and wraps around in streams that haunt me with a quaint imprisonment, your smile moves through me in a delightful pleasure, caressing my face with your ways.

Sometimes I sit with my heart resting on the winds of pain and sorrow, lighting up fear and anger in never ending skies.  You wait, because you know just what to do, standing silent, by my side.

Who else could possibly understand me the way you do?  When it rains, you never try to change the air I breathe.  When my sun is eclipsed by clouds of time and space, you never deny me the chance to stand with my eyes closed, until I am brave enough to open them and see.

You read me as if you wrote the book of who I am.  As time passes, I see that what is unsaid, stares back with a message that arrives on golden wings. No one else understands me the way you do.  Your fingers turn the pages of my soul, as if you wrote the book of me.

'When it rains you never try to change the air that I breathe...' that a grand compliment for someone who has captured the personality and life of another within the imaginationn, bringing to color what was once detailed in monochrome.

Delightful read...nicely penned with genuine emotion.

What a beautiful poem. well written and poignant. Only observation is that at times we project our feelings and our needs to others.

I know someone who knows me that well and I miss her so very much. I wish I could go and visit her but right now I cannot. Sad though it may be. Alas she still comferts me in her words when we speek on the phone. She still turns the pages of my sole when I hear her voice. Beautiful write Neva!

This is perfectly beautiful...brought to mind my best friend who knows me inside and out, soul deep. We are who we are, real and messy, and still loved. Thank you for this...

From the first sentence, I immediately had one person in mind, someone I am very close to. The fact that you wrote this not for another person, but for yourself makes it unique.

I think this is one of your best pieces. But I'm just saying that as a reader. The way the poem is set up makes it much easier to understand than your other works. You really put your heart into this, and it shines through so beautifully.
