Dancing Inside the Stillness of My Soul

Dancing Inside the Stillness of My Soul

A Poem by Neva Flores Smith - Changefulstorm
"

There were days I fell into a whirlwind where sunlight glittered then escaped....

"



























There were days
I fell into a whirlwind
where sunlight glittered
then escaped.
I was proud
to count each move made
as a gift.
Sometimes, underneath my eyes
I could see a kiss
deep inside an ocean
of a thousand stars
looking up
at my lips.

Often, I wished
to be still
inside my soul
find a shelter
where I could dance
just one more time,
to verses I wrote
just for you.
Thinking,
perhaps then,
I could fade hypnotically
into your thoughts,
find the sweetest truth.

For endless days now,
I have stared at empty paper
trying to remember
your voice
and capture how much I love you
inside a metaphor.
I found I only fell back
into a whirlwind
where sunlight glittered
then escaped
my heart
only loved you more.

Last night, underneath my eyes
I once again
saw a kiss
deep inside an ocean
of a thousand stars
filled with your face
and my own.
There, I danced
inside the stillness of my soul
within the shelter
of your arms,
found in your eyes,
my home.

This is beautiful work!!! You have become my favorite poet in a short while! It's hard for me to write about my present situation at the moment but eventually I will - but it's like you're reading my mind and write the way I've been feeling!!!! It amazes me!!!
You're an amazing artist!!!

Dancing to the verses I wrote for you would be the thoughts that would fill my day with the imagery that I would all long for eternity.

To me this expresses the calm and acceptance you feel when you're with someone special, and how when that happens every pleasure is magnified by a thousand.

Truly beautiful. I always enjoy your work. My favorite lines were
"For endless days now,
I have stared at empty paper
trying to remember
your voice
and capture how much I love you
inside a metaphor. "

I feel I can relate to this. Again, lovely!!
