Morgen Joy

Richness

RICHNESS

 

My body drips with honey

And my eyes are a warm embrace

My tongue in your mouth is molasses

With the same elusive taste

My voice is a tunnel to my heart

One that burns with white light at the end

The love I have for you is heavy 

My hands on your chest are Godsent

I feel your heartbeat and remember

Pressing your cheek against mine

A rush of passion consumes my velvet soul

As I remember our past lives

And although you said goodbye to me

I know you will never forget

The sweet way we were together

And the richness that I possess

 

-Morgen Joy

    Beautiful acknowledgment of self worth despite failed love.
    I love it!

    I have loved several people that way in my life, most of them decades ago and some of the relationships lasted for only a short time. Whether we were kids who moved apart, or one of us decided there wasn't a future in it, I have never stopped loving any of them, some who are not even alive today. Each love is added to the others, does not replace it or push it aside. So no I'm sure that person will never forget.

      If it were possible i would take your comment here, beautifully expressed, and add it to my favourites. For in your words you show so much of my own feeling in words i have not shaped.

        Well, let's credit Morgen for the inspiration and well-tempered reminder.
