So sad, and so true, that where we expect love to fill us up, we find only a few drops. Enough to keep us going but not to nourish. As always your words paint beautiful pictures.

Thank-you so much for the insightful reply!. Love can be such a painful thing...so far I haven't found a love as pure as what I share with my crested geckos. The other night I open up the door to Mandarin's tank (one of my males) and right away he jumped onto my shoulder and ran down the front of my top, nuzzling between my breasts. So sweet and flirtatious!

You're very welcome. You're right, love can be very painful. Mostly because we put our hearts out there with trust and so often the trust is betrayed. People are so often disappointing. Animals are much truer companions in general.

If only more people could love the way animals love, pure and simple and true. We have so much to learn from animals.

My goodness.. this is so painfully beautiful.

The visions are exquisite, the dance of antitheses is like a whirlwind without direction.
Tidal the flow of your words, and your emotions. So many elements in this gem that 'steal' me..

I must say it is one of my most favorite of yours so far, wonderful Poetess. :heart:

Thank-you so much for your poetic love of this poem, I'm glad you loved it so, and could emerse yourself in its tidal rhythms. I thought you would like the ending words too, in honor of your name.

I was quite touched when I read those words, though I didn't know
and wouldn't assume you mentioned them thinking of me.

I am truly Honored indeed and I thank you with all my heart. :love:

You are most welcome, I admire that you can. I am still working on that aspect, I probably hold back because I am a late bloomer to writing.

but your love
was more a trickle than a downpour, leaving
my phials half-dry with Desire
sounds like a tease ;)

The silence... delay when it's written
loses it's concentration in the sounds of ballads
diluting itself in enigmatic love letters
hieroglyphs carved in coal within the soul
a chart of lost and found, a mix of words, tears and sorrow
such beautiful treasures thrown to the shoreline of loneliness
like a shipwrecked

different resons, all the same feelings...

it's an old thing... I had hidden it ages ago in my trunk of treasures...

You hide beautiful things away in your trunk of treasures, I'm sure a lot of people would love to see it, marvelling at its intricate beauty.

that's why they're called trunk of treasures, half empty, half full, from emotions of a lifetime that I can't let go...
you've some treasures within yourself, perhaps not as hidden as mine, but treasures non the less, and I'm always surprised by the wonders in them.

Thanks Helena. Opening that trunk can be so painful too... I wrote a poem yesterday (not yet up)and I was crying before I even started writing it. (I was trying to get in that special place I needed to be and I got so depressed and cried all night). Do you ever cry before you write poetry?
Reply
:iconkay-march:
Kay-March Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2012
yes... it happens frequently with me also, and I could see your pain resembling my own, because I was crying too
it may sound pretentious to outsiders, but the trouble is that we feel things too deeply, stronger and harder than others, our poetry seems beautiful most of the times, but it comes from broken things and pain (a dark place inside our hearts that can't be filled, a void or a dark star), and the writing it's a bittersweet relantionship, liberating but overflowing with grief
