Even on the driest of days I am wet,
you still scent my skin with stormy skies
and the rain that clings to your footsteps,
your eyes-a warm shower that melts the
frost from my horizon, your voice-a cloud
burst that fills my pores when sighs are
not enough, my thoughts are a mist that
drifts like a lost soliloquy onto your side
of the Sea, tenderly dissipating in the
rainy haze of every kiss, but your love
was more a trickle than a downpour, leaving
my phials half-dry with Desire, my waters
rising without my floodgates being released
to enjoy the fathoms of no regret...but
dew still clings to my petals and more
than a few drops of love I harbor inside
my slow-rising tide, if only you would
disperse yourself on my half-baked shell
I wouldn't have to hold my breath anymore,
your vapours were always more imaginary
than real...but even on the driest of days
I am still wet...since you shipwrecked
yourself on my halcyon shores.

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 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.

Sometimes I think God put them here to teach us.

You hook the reader in from the very first line and your watery images are as intriguing as they are beautiful!
Thank-you so much for that. I'm glad you enjoyed it as I do your always insightful comments.

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:
