Tangled Vines

There is a tangled vine, that grows
It grows between the centuries
Two centuries old, it can't be seen
Between us now, it has a hold
on me, and all my reasoning

Defying time that lies between us
I've read each word between the lines
The words you wrote have landed here
Bringing with them all the years
I can feel you standing here with me
Words can do that, I can see you!
They capture me within my soul,...I know of love, I know,... I know...

The love I feel, a tangled vine
That grows between your earth and mine
This was your world...I've made it mine...
Though we may speak with different tongues...
Some things are timeless, from the start
I know of love,..... I know, I know

Your words have caught me in my throat....
A vine of loneliness imparts
And tendrils of my own, my heart
Reach out to tell you so....

I feel the pull so deep inside
How strange and crazy, this may be
I know of love.........I know.....

I know somewhere, away from here
Somewhere deep on different shores
Our stars are meant to cross again
I know of love............I know

I feel your presence here with me
It matters not the century
A tangled vine was sent for me
To cling, until my eyes can see
you reaching out for me 

There is a tangled vine, that grows between
Two centuries old, it can't be seen
Between us now, it has a hold
that defies all lucid reasoning

Inspired by Constance La France's Contest: Tangled Vines

    Gripping and heartfelt. My God, do I know how this feels. And, you know, Love is just that: Defied Reasoning. Fantastic job, Carrie.

    The repeats of 'I know of love...I know' makes me weak in the knees...I'm terrible at interpretation (I have trouble with Mother Goose) but your reference to 'centuries old' gives me a sense of re-incarnation here, as if you and your soul mate were lovers many times in the past perhaps?...Maybe that's the true definition of 'soul mate'...You keep topping yourself my friend - Tim
