Into the Unknown

Will you move me?

Will your dialect know no bounds?

…

Will you hold me?

Hold me…
…within.

I am an unwritten paragraph.
Will you be my ink?

Can my downfalls become our melancholy uprisings?

Can we fly beyond the imaginary rainbows and kiss the rain?

Can we look beyond diamond hypocrisies and simply make each other priceless?

My fantasy…
…is you.

My reality…
…is with you.

My dreams…
…are of you.

Each breath presents resuscitation. 

For I am not your mask,
I am your lungs!

Mother Nature’s oxygen has NOTHING on the air we breathe
From Yin/Yang swan dives and chocolate sunrises

Declaring amnesia to step aside!

We have an embedded dance to share!
Each dip and sway, removing corrupted solitude from your hair!

For I need no declarations to the world,
You are already in mine!

…

Standing upon edge of eagle’s wing

I see a familiar, moistened fog.

My passive breath, ready to remove the sorrow
As I wonder

Will you remember me?

Tomorrow

    Perhaps it's just because of the changing of the times, but I've always felt some of the older classics like Shakespeare were written too formally. I just adore poetry that's written in this spur of the moment, sporadicness (I don't believe that's a real word, but it fits). Because for one it inevitably shows us more and more of your personality with each coming write... and second it just seems more heartfelt (not writing rhymes just for sake of rules)...

    You, my good man, have blown me away with this comment. "Now writing rhymes just for the sake of rules", precisely! You get it. That's how I roll. I love Shakespeare. But, too rigid for me. Many want to write like him, but not like themselves. No thank you. You absolutely grasped the full meaning of this piece. That means so much. I'm truly grateful.

    Getting back to topic... you know I loved this, right? I don't comment on writings I didn't care for... I do enjoy your somewhat cryptic endings. Given the context before the last two lines gave me surprise. In this moment the relationship is beyond spectacular... will it still last as time goes on?

    AHHH I love this!! You don't think you write that deeply (Im guessing) but you truly do. This is a gem :) "We have an embedded dance to share! Each dip and sway, removing corrupted solitude from your hair!" Brilliant!!

    I just write from the heart. How deep it goes/comes from, I'll leave that to the reader to decide. :) Thank you so, so much, Gina! :)

    I wonder why i always have to start from the ending but i do love how the ending seals those yearning verses which reach beyond solitude and boundaries..even realities.I love the ending 'Will you remember me tomorrow'..Diving into the unknown unanswered questions always linger in the labyrinth of our heart.Very beautiful poem..the unknown makes it intriguing..somehow sad and somehow hopeful.. Just beautiful Drake-

    Happy I stopped by and read this one this morning-- it is truly lovely and so meaningful for us poets... "we have an embedded dance to share"-- amazing ! Have you read my "Uteriority"-- deals with the same theme of words and how they sustain us.
