Best Monterey Sirak Poems

+ Fav Poet


You are the teardrop I will never cry
A fine mist shimmering in my sight
allowing me to see through your eyes

If I should stumble    I will be okay
for it is just my feet  
accommodating your step
as you walk along with me

I promise I will dance in the rain
and dare the thunder
which calls my name
From life’s storms I will not hide
for you are always at my side

Your eternal breath    a sad sigh
echoing through my soul
fluttering butterfly kisses
upon my heart

You are the song left unsung
A lilting melody repeating endlessly
Life’s ink ran dry
before love’s fair ballad was done

    That 1st line had me in fierce shambles. Holy damn. Gripping declaration of heart & soul!

    I love everything about this one accept the last stanza. Eternal breath and life's ink ran dry seems incongruent. Perhaps my brain is misinterpreting the message. Either way you have written a wonderful piece. Just a thought....... Life's ink flows, Writing indelible notes on my heart

    I think I just read a winner..I was mesmerized the whole way through...perfect.... By the way...I love your name...Monterey ..:-)

    Indeed love carries the reader forward and yet such sadness in the end. I hope you are not sad now. It is not always the poet's life that is being written down ofcourse .Thank you for visiting.Check out, Do You Think Old Birds Dream Of Flying, If you stop by again.
