Tarnished Lovers

A Poem by D. Nelson
"

just... a musing of words. For a special someone. enjoy.

"

For Tamera...

the ill-fated connection to my sublime reality.

 

Heartbeat steady,
thus your beauty remains.
Tracing the flaws of my soul
with heedful strokes of brush
in the form of sweet eventful lips,
onto fluid surfaced wax paper,
leaving fleeting silhouettes
of our entwined bodies
and the faint accompaniment
of tainted and battered souls.
The damaged seek one another.
I would not wish it any other way.

Repetition makes perfection so I'll say what others before me have already said

Like attracts like.

They say time heals all wounds, but I wonder can it heal a broken heart? Two halves make a whole, so maybe two broken hearts can make a whole one, a perfect match, soulmates........

Thats what I get from this piece. A searching, a yearning, and even a recognition of that perfect second half.

"The damaged seek one another"
...so true.
There is no love like mutual understanding.
And in some cases that understanding can only come from tragic experience.
Beautiful piece Dillon. Intense and yearning. Timeless.
