Fluoroscope Eyes

Shimmer glowing
     twinkling water
             softly flowing
                   New moon casting shadows
                         Penumbras shifting
                              Lakeside silence
                                     Silver dances
                                                 Liquid shine of peace

   Why do I sit agitated?
     Eyes drawn inward
           Naked soul 
         stripped down
 Barren like the winter trees
     A skeleton of myself
 Solitude surrounding me
    Like a heavy snow
     a January Shroud

A billion stars are upward
    whispering your name
       Chanting with their twinkles
           of my eternal longing
               Their brilliance mocking
                  Reminding me of distance
                       and my infernal sorrow

The moon casts an eerie glow
Across the rocky cliffs
taunting me with loneliness
The place beside me empty

I close my eyes
          Lashes slightly damp
                      My hair falls forward
                               I take a deep breath in
                  and I conjure you

      I see you there 
      in ghostly form
You wrap me in your arms
     Suddenly the stars 
       cease taunting
the moon glows a sweet hue
    and i feel warm seep in
    you smile softly at me
     you seem so very real

My aching heart is full
Your sexy smile stirs me
   I feel such peace
you whisper words
   that cause a laugh....

Is this happiness?

If I open my eyes 
you will disappear
      like a puff of smoke
Like the phantom you are
So I keep them 
            squeezed shut
tightly, heart pounding
        and I smile

A Mona Lisa smile
          all the mystery 
              of woman and love
                   and the infinite universe
             resting on my face

How long can I sit here
         I wonder.....
before my eyes must open?

    This one brought tears to my goes into my favs. I thought it was so beautiful & I can relate to this in my own life /past, deep things of the heart that aren't always talked about but are always felt. I loved the phrase "January Shroud" it got the emotions across perfectly! I hope you find happiness my sweet friend, I could see this so clearly like a picture or a movie, & to think of you sad makes me sad too. :( The ending lines are terrific. Love your lioness friend with teeny pincers

    Very well written fantsy write I believe, not sure of the catagory you put it under... anyway, very excellent write.

  1. Date: 3/4/2009 10:19:00 AM I would not worry about that "Precious Christie Moses!!!!"~For as they say, "patience and perseverence can be like gold...."~And well, I believe stongly within these qualities of character!!!~But if I could, I would love to sit upon those shores where "You" are at for awhile~just to laugh with "You," and see "Your Beautiful Mona Lisa Smile!!!!"~"Your Soul Is Soo Deep~And Soo Extremely Beautiful!!!!"~"Wonderful Write Christie!!!!"~"Love To 'You and Brianna,' John!!!!":)) On we go....

    ....and as far as Your precious thoughts and feelings go in regards to Your possible moment of life, as depicted within this profoundly deep and thus treasure filled write~I cannot tell You when to open "Your Beautiful Eyes," or how long to keep them closed!? But again, I would venture to believe~that either or, it is probably but a short while, until all of Your hopes and dreams shall be fulfilled!!!?....cont....

    Well Mona Lisa~Smile~I wouldn't think that in Your case, that it would be that very long dear lady!!!?~Why are You soo amazing Christie!!!?~Why is it no surprise to myself, that 'anyone, whom truly knows even the half of "You," would not be completely drawn unto "You!!!!"~Personally, speaking for myself~its like I just want to put my head next to "Your Priceless Heart," just so I can hear its beautiful beating~Smile~"You Are Soo Beautiful, Inside~Completely!!!!"....cont....

    You Know Beautiful Christie!!!!~I reread Your "ViValdi" before coming to this write~And there were just soo many expressions, images and spectacular verses within it~Smile~Yes, "It Is No Less Than 'A Treasure of A Gift To Know You!!!!'"~Here, let me send this to You now, before reading this write again....

    Hi Christie.... I think I am going to have to go back to saying how awful your poetry is just so's I can take a break from words such as wonderful and awesome and amazing and excellent.. brilliant.. its either that or I will start making up words... like poetimanimus... yes there's a good one... Christie this was absolutely poetimanimus !.... thank you for your comment Christie... :)

    Christie, this has so much apparant lonliness and yet so much wonderful passion. It's as if you speak directly to the reader, making in my case, me, feel like you are talking directly to me. That's a great effect my dear friend, the talent poet you are. Amazing! Michael

  1. Date: 3/3/2009 12:04:00 PM
    Well, wow, awesome write. Yeah, I agree with Stacey and definitely stay there as long as possible. Well, you should go back anyway, since I assume you are no longer there. The imagery, the emotions, the presentation - sigh - an absolutely beautiful, and simply outstanding write. Par excellence. Cannot say enough. Love, Shar

    You rocked this piece, Christie. I was so taken in, I read it twice. There is something about the moon and love lost or found. Well done work.
