I saw you walking back to me

A million thought and you are not with me Nights,days,wasted in waiting All I wanted in my heart was to love you Years pass by, I still recall your name yet I do wonder, if a time,a moment comes when you will forget me and I would barely remember you Winter follows another Winter in fear in fear that my spirit fails me In fear that my eyelids close before these embered lips ever get a chance to taste frosted manna from your tongue and fresh raindrops from your kiss In the stillness of this place I write to you like I have always done From this little room I count a thousand stars I dream a million dreams For instance,I dream of purple dew falling softly from the veiling of silk sky lacing the emptiness of our arms But stars fade so quick ,and dreams die too soon Stars fade,dreams die Yet I swear,I swear I saw you yesterday I saw you walking back to me I swear,it was your fingertips playing with my hair It was your breath upon my neck's nape It was your smile,your eyes I swear I saw you walking back to me Yet you never did and deep within the furnace of my soul I know you never will.
A fiction poem inspired by a book I read in my teens called ~Wuthering Heights~

    The lake district is truly beautiful as you say Charmaine , Devon is too , The Yorkshire dales are fabulous , Bournemouth , I always thought it was for old people , I had better check it out ,

    I have to go to Gretna Green..I heard about it and the story re couples who are forbid to marry going to that place to marry in the past..Yes ..that s with my top ten next favourites.Few yrs ago We went to lake district,t was beautiful,I even loved Devon's countryside and portsmouth,Had a chance to stay three nights at the isle of wight.We ve been to the midlands too,even to .other sides such as brighton ,were in suffolk and Norwich .The place I visited most was Bournemouth .It has something which keeps calling me there.Every year We talk about going to another country in Europe but it always end up..England Ireland Scotland Wales : )..Strange but true.We just love the language;the people ,the forests mountains lakes and the whole package :.).Yes Gretna Green ..sure wanna go there

    Of course a romantic lady like yourself should head for Gretna Green , That's where couples elope to . The altar is a blacksmiths anvil . You pass through some of the most spectacular scenery in the whole wide world.

    If you do go to Whitby Charmaine , Please look above the harbour and see the old ruined abbey , Here Bram Stoker wrote of Dracula , You really feel it . A couple of miles up the road is Runswick bay . Take a note book because you'll have a thousand poems whirling about in your mind within minutes.

    Poetry is not story or essay or news...Poetry is rhythm of life like heart-beat . Working smoothly without any over react ...I like fiction . I love maximum effects with minimum materials ... Best wishes from India...
