Our Thirsty Hearts


Cotton candy floss

Sparklers spelling our names

Ornaments decorate my room

Smiles staring back at my face

Daisy chains upon our wrists

Branches crackle beneath our feet

Willow trees intertwining

Sharing the wisdom in our breathing

Our manipulated brains

Gazing up at space

Stars hustle in one place

Unforgivable to mistake

Our thirsty hearts

Wanting to surrender in each others blood

Falling for each others stone

Ready to catch and hold

I’ll circle your heart

Tie it up

Capture it for mine

I’m addicted to the song sung

By our unconventional thirsty hearts

    Another lovely poem
    Very good girl!!!!!!!


    BEAUTIFUL LOVE POEM SHANNON ~ JUST BEAUTIFUL ! I was 17 ~ 17 years ago at the turn of the Century 20th to the 21st anything was possible and all our HEARTS were THIRSTY for LOVE ~ Oh yes I remember it well ~ as if it were Yesterday. I resonated with every nuance in you perfect Poem. In some ways the 21 st C has been a bit of a disappointment (911 ~ Brexit ~ Global Warming etc) perhaps that is because I'm 34 and no longer see the World through rose tinted 17 year old vision. I work with Young People (17 ~ 25) and I thank GOD that (despite everything) they are all up for it and optimistic enough about the future to love and fall in love ! So SHANNON ~ you ~ and your Peers ~ continue to feed your Thirsty Hearts and I'll do the worrying for you ~ AMEN Hugs BRIAN XX

      Shannon, in my humble opinion, this is about as good as it gets. What a beautiful declaration of love. Like the line "Falling for each others stone".
      Great writing!
