Heavy Footprints Of Love

the sorrow lies in the reverberation 
of wanting you ….always wanting you…..
it taunts me like a starving wretch
it echoes in the corners of my mind….

your name on my lips and soft on my tongue
red and raw and pulsing with such blatant desire
how could the whole world not feel this fire ?

love is much stronger than rampant lust alone….
(it could break through steel….this love I‘ve known)

it rides in silver wings of angels in the sky
stretching supplication toward the heart of weeping
pleading on pristine white clouds for respite 
as it plunges into the whirlpool of want 
                                              and on tiptoes
it came in….treading so delicately on this tattered heart
rose petal soft …..but completely destructive
battered in the need of needing you….

please….this love is much too powerful to withstand 
wrapped in want that leaves me naked in the rain….
and I want to hide from the stone pelts rising
the punch of gut hurt heat that comes (inevitably)
when its so far away that no cry on wind could catch it
oceans betwixt and blue is an enemy….

where are you my love as I wake in the night….
are you sleeping? do you dream of me? 
I dreamt of you….and I woke up weeping….
empty arms and solemn seconds ticking by in anguish

I want you….just in one kiss to your lips 
though one would never suffice
for I am greedy, my love and it cannot be quenched
with a single kiss….(could one kiss ever last a lifetime)

I am a beggar riding a pegasus
eager and white as muscles ripple against a black sky
her wings soar effortlessly
and I am flying toward you….yet…I never do reach you…
hijacked we were….in time and we are prisoners…

a little like the dream one has of running…
but standing motionless
frustration beseeches me and then consumes me
into a mass of messy “what do I do”

can you feel my need as it tears through me
raging and wanton….completely blatant

each day seems a thousand with your hands not about me
teasing my skin until I cannot breathe but to cry out your name
would it in some way repay you and describe this love….?

I am you… are me… a mirror its your eyes I see….

forgive me if I repeat myself….

the sorrow lies in the reverberation 
of wanting you ….always wanting you…..

    The proclamation of love, within the most of ways I believe~Something again, that very few writers as "Your Unique Self," could ever fully and truly express, within such a picturesque and soulfully stirring manner!!?:)~"You Are A Jewel & A Treasure & Priceless Christie Moses & You Shall Forever Be!!":)~"Good To See 'You' Again, Love Always To 'You & Your Brianna, John!!"~"Have A Very Beautiful Day!!":) Bye ~

    Christie, This poem grabs my heart and takes it down memory lane. Although, to me, your poem sounds like someone separated by war's demand instead of "lost love" Anyway, I was captivated throughout the reading. Many images brilliantly portrayed were flowing in my mind as I sunk deeper into an understanding of wanting... Very well written. Lovingly, Dane

    Wow Christie! You took me on a journey like I have never been on before. I fully understand the love that you speak of here. This is almost exactly how I feel right now. Speechless! Thanks for the comment also! Nate

    Christie...I am not sure how many times I can or will say this, but I know this poem like my own non-heartbeat. i know it like blood-un-boiled; and dead laughter. i know it like a body without its limbs and a begger without a cup. I hate it, and long for it all at once. so I am so sorry. together we cry. XOXO Love, me

    Good morning Christie - You know I honestly believe that you must live is a area of very odd type men - How could not some mans heart be wrapped around you like a warm blanket in the snow - It just be founds me in every way - I agree with Sharon your Poetic Talent is rising to a level all its own - Leaves a man feeling like he is in Death Valley - Thirsty & hot - No Offense meant I hope you understand that hon, Nothing but respect - A favorite poem of mine - God Bless, mj

    Your talent of poetic expression seems to be growing by leaps and bounds. So many lines that grab my heart and blow me away leaving me saying, wow. To say your passion and longing is felt here, would be putting it mildly. It is so powerful, it hurts. Bravo on reaching into the depth of your heart and soul and revealing a beautiful, sensual and vital truth through your talent of words. Love, Shar
