There is no other

There is no other

A Poem by Jack...

 

 

 

There is no other

 

 

Trinkets of touch saved for memories keeping

Traces of love we now lock in our hearts

Days never end as the mornings beginning

Tears find their path in our moments apart

 ~

Catching a glimpse of the barren horizon

Wondering what it will bring to our eyes

Simply the thought of the one true affection

Caught in the stars that do light up the skies

 ~

Here as I sit on this beach ever changing

Lost in the mind is the essence of proof

Moving my feet, causing ruts in the sand floor

Noticing nothing aside from the truth

 ~

Why does it seem that this life wallows empty

Every day is the same only more

Swiftly the clouds bring the rain’s chilly vision

Dreaming of only the one I adore

 ~

Drinking the drops in the puddles of reason

Splashing against all that I’ve ever known

Capturing dreams in a spoon that is leaking

Now as I write in these words all alone

 ~

Hard to believe that a flower is blooming

Fragrance as sweet as the heart beat we share

Chains bear the lock that does keep me from reaching

Look but don’t touch is the warning...beware

 ~

I long to run down the path of decision

Challenge my fear in this soft ocean breeze

Finding a cave at the edge of the mountain

Placing my soul in the shadows to breathe

 ~

Only my heart keeps me here by the wayside

Hoping beyond every truth that does form

Lasting the pain of this fearless affection

Keeping my place in the face of the storm

 ~

Proving to no one’s un-answering questions

Feeling ashamed as I’ve nothing to show

Still I will wait on the eve of my lifetime

Promising always that I’ll love you so

 ~

For I am a man who does desperately need you

There is no other that I’m thinking of

Here I will sit till the world it is ending

Counting the days till I know your sweet love

 ~

Why can’t we meet at the same destination

Drink of the day that affords us the view

Forget the world and its many distractions

Except for this love that I hold here for you

 ~

You really are the king of romance!

"For I am a man who does desperately need you
There is no other that I’m thinking of
Here I will sit till the world it is ending
Counting the days till I know your sweet love"

You are going to sweep someone off their feet Jack and they're never going to let you go. She'll be the luckiest woman ever.

Thanks so much my friend. I guess we will see.
What a love, what a beauty, what a romance again Jack, sigh, you never stop do you? :D epic lines woven here, through the eye seen of a true poet, the heart of a musician, and the piano notes I hear.

I so loved this piece.
I will come back for more, but it's late...

I'm always so happy to read you! and truly sorry, I'm so slow... urgh ;)
Oh Jack, this is wonderful in every sense! In the way you've laced your wordstogether, in the emotions you so obviously feel, in combining memories with tenderness - not a cynical or bitter stroke in sight, in wanting, needing to make more of whatever is there. This, dear poet friend is the work of a man who's found himself and remains true to what's been, is, and undoubtedly, always will be.

' I long to run down the path of decision ~ Challenge my fear in this soft ocean breeze ~ Finding a cave at the edge of the mountain ~ Placing my soul in the shadows to breathe..'

Go for it - IT is the most important of Everything!

Thanks so much my friend. I appreciate your kind words.
This is an epic work.
I am impressed by the beauty of the piece.
Its rhyming is amazing.
Specially love this stanza:
"Catching a glimpse of the barren horizon
Wondering what it will bring to our eyes
Simply the thought of the one true affection
Caught in the stars that do light up the skies"

You are most welcome,dear friend.
It was really my pleasure.
Sigh, sigh, and sigh. This reminds me of vintage Jack. Trinkets and beaches never sounded so luverly as when you've pen'd them my sweet friend. Top shelf stuff.

Thanks so very much ES. It is so nice to have you visit my world and leave such nice words for me.
The flawless rhythm and rhyme of this one made your words flow and I was swept up in the current. “Drinking the drops in the puddles of reason” lines like this make me wish I had written them! Your imagery takes in all of nature...caves, mountains, shadows, the sand. The declaration of love has a monumental feel to it. As if you are standing on that mountaintop and announcing to the world she is the one for you and always will be. Unfortunately, too often life gets in the way and as the song goes, “love is not enough.” The bittersweetness of this one has seeped into my soul. Beautifully expressed, Jack. Lydi**
