At Least

Our hearts were a veritable slow dance

And I didn’t have to put my baby
In the corner

Our retinas
became diamond forged binds
In serenity’s lock

Dipping
Your tear ducts within our wishing wells

Never
Running
Dry

Our flesh
Bringing lukewarm elasticity
To gentle boil

Every graceful thrust
Mimicking fireplace embers
Under cabin’s winter moon

Until my deep sigh
Embedded paragraphs
Within “Dear John” parchment

…

At least

Trinity’s hourglass
Permitted me to sing I love you choruses

Before your hearts’ phone line
Disconnected

…

    "Until... " "At least... " Depicts some haunted gratitude though the end is clearly in sight. Emotionally charging, a heartfelt piece. As usual with you... A phenomenal talent! Hugs

    Again, I like your impassioned poetry too often full of dreariness, but very effective

    Hi, Laura! =D I'm very glad you enjoyed this. I don't think this is even close to genius. But, I know this didn't suck either. lol You're very kind in your comments. Thank you so much!
  1. Date: 9/6/2013 4:03:00 PM

    an intriguing piece, as your poems so often are; sensuality mixed with sadness, good use of metaphor, this is what free verse is all about...thanks for stopping by with your uplifting comment :)

    A romantic night of passion, each knowing it would be their last time in each others arms, they cry tears of joy and sadness. Your writes are like doing puzzles and I love putting the pieces together. Excellent write Drake! Hugs

  1. Date: 9/4/2013 6:41:00 PM

    I really like how you put words together. They fit, but almost don't. Romantic & steamy and sad. My favorite lines are "Bringing lukewarm elasticity/To gentle boil" Good stuff... Jack

    Eszes Avatar Drake Eszes Date: 9/4/2013 6:49:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Nicely said, Jack! :) I seriously appreciate it! Thank you so much!

    Many of your poems could be songs to be sung on a rainy night, soft guitar, weeping windows, a dark street light quivering in the wind. This is one.....giving the reader a sense of loneliness, heartbreak, and deep emotion of a love gone wrong. Do you play music, Drake.??....you should put this to chords of a mellow, somber melody...I would cry buckets!!

    Eszes Avatar Drake Eszes Date: 9/4/2013 2:07:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    You have made me smile so wide. I dabble in piano here & there. I can rock a guitar like nobody's business...in Rock Band. lol I never thought to put this to a song. Maybe I could...??? Thank you so so so much, Carrie.

The person at the entrance booth will either be Donatello of the Ninja Turtles or Marvin the Martian. ;-) Also, I didn't disappear anywhere. lol It was a Holiday weekend. I was away for just a few days. It's nice to have been missed though. You're friggin awesome, Eileen! Thank you for being you!
