~ The Way You Live Through Me



 

Each page filled with gossamer cotton layers~

Hand-bound with precious care

The smell of history,  woven in magic,

The calligraphic beauty of every word

 

The narrators soul alive,

Dancing with time jumps

Almost trial pleasing illusions

That come alive~

 

Ages breathe through young lungs

Felt in the most sensible way,

Just how you live through me

I keep growing each day~

 

Pain, love and treasures,

I find on the journey

Of reading a book~

It will forever live through me

The way I gave it a look

Wow, Elisa my friend!! Amazing, fantastical work as always. I'm getting a much better sense of the story you're weaving together now. I haven't read all the "~" poems, as you call them, but when I have the time, I'd love to.

I honestly think you're an amazing fantasy writer, and would love to see a whole book of Elysion poems, or something like that. But then again, that would mean you'd have to make it public (I assume). And then you're thrown to the wolves, aren't you?? It's tough to share our inner worlds with the reading public, because not all of them will understand.

Dear Elisa, I find it hard to chose the words that accurately describe the feeling of absolute comfort and peace I felt while reading thia poem. You words are that of a book which captivates the mind and the senses, like a calm breeze turned each page as I read. The history so enchanting and calling out to me was that of a voice most beautiful. This piece is exquisite.

Your are very welcome.

So happy you came by though my friend :D
I can't describe this..
You went from desciribg a book, to talking about love. Two whole different things!
But they both have a connection to each other, one way or another.
The last stanza... My favorite.
All of your poems, everyone's poems, all have a secret, hidden, message.
The beauty of poetry is so beautiful.
Another job well done

95/100

You Too :)
This reminds me of Shakespeare's, Sonnet 18.
This also references to the immortality of words; as long as men read that is. :)
Great piece.

I read this aloud and it was magical. You know I always look forward to reading your work of art...for each and every piece has a unique message, a hidden treasure found in the context of your stories and poetry. "THIS" is another gift, another treasure, that you have inked. Perfection is in the purity of your soul. Beautifully penned, Sis!

I feel so honored by your words sis... thank you so much hun X
Elisa this was so lovely! The way a book, written in any age can reconjure itself over and over by entering a new persons imagination is amazing! A story is immortal that way, and with that, the authors soul. I absolutely loved this!
