Free Verse # 214 (a universe of poetry)

Like my breaths, all my poems are stars in the unfolding algebra of her heart.

~

“Stain me with your passion,” she whispered, “let your liquid fire flow so deep my flesh becomes the vessel of your poetry.”

~

She wore night for a dress,
And the stars were poems
Adorning her infinite depth.

~

She will remain the poem I will never write, yet, for that reason, my most intimate poem.

~

Every night
gazing into the sky
among the stars I read
the longing which your eyes
left etched in a verse
meant to unfold
in the heart of me

~

Before the gateway of his heart she stood hesitant as though she were at the entrance of an endless forest brimming with endless mysteries, yet a vague scent called out to her, and a song her heart has been listening to since the day she was born.

~

I shut my sight from the world and sent it, like a star, through the brilliant depths of you.

~

We touched, and eons of separation between our fingers melted into an ocean which tide bore us to infinity.

~

Like the sea heaves a pearl onto the shore thus heaven yielded you into my arms, and eternity, upon our lips, was a song of remembrance and rebirth.

~

We burn
in each other’s flesh,
deeper still,
in each other’s thoughts,
and deeper,
in the silence between our heartbeats,
the still of our breaths.

~

My diary I kept in the folds of her skin—a star here, a tear there; here a flower, there a thorn; and in her heart a universe of poetry.

~

Not like fog does her breath blanket things, but, rather, like the mist of creation does it seep from their heart, from their very substance.

~

Welling up in my secret depths
this poem like a star
falls to her pillow,
all night long
whispers to her heart
a gentle light,
a dream…

~

Not knowing the seat of your heart I flutter, from star to star, yearningly asking, have you seen my love?

~

For the love of your eyes
I have wept my poems like dew
Into the dawn of their silence

~

I miss you,
and no word-cup
can contain my longing;
like fire through the seams of existence
it overflows,
melting the cosmos in its divine flow.

~

Silently my dewed whispers
Over your skin spread,
Soaking wet a garden
That now, in the rising sun,
Shines endless colors,
Words on love fed.

~

I feel you
as though you were a tree
which roots strike
into the unfathomable depths
of my wild, vibrant heart.

  1. Pierre,
    This is a simply deliciously intoxicating and powerful way of stopping all thoughts to just be there for a moment … with the loved one, be the loved one or the longings all the same…
    Thanks…
