Come to me my beloved,
save me from life's brutalities,
so this heart can soften -
sparkle like a million fireflies.

For you hold the light
to illuminate my soul.
For you are the ceremony
and I the dance.
As you come near,
I'll spin like a mad man,
dancing in the rain.

If to touch you is a sin,
then I am a sinner,
yearning to sin till my last breath.

If to hold you, means to lose everything,
then I will live as a penniless man,
rich within the luxuries of your affection.

If to love you is a crime,
then I am a criminal,
lock me away and dispose of the key,
chain me within the chambers of your heart.

If this is my last poem,
then let these words become spirits,
sleeping within the sacred sanctuary 
of your supernal soul.

Silent One
Simple Musing

Well, S O, I'm certainly hoping it's not, but if this is, or should be, your "last poem", you'd certainly end with a bang and not a whimper, and would continue to blaze very brightly for a long, long time.

S O my friend, you never cease to amaze me with your extreme talent. I read this to my wife and her response was, "that's poetry"! She is absolutely right. Oh, to have a third as much real poetic finesse. Thank you for such a great write.

If this was your last poem..I would come and read it every day...because such a beautiful poem this is.It speaks of how deeply love can go...Love risks so much...some say Love risks more than it is worth. But I'd say to find Love.It is worth everything.....even losing so much at times..Fantastic post.

I really like how you did this theme. One of your best works, Silent One. I felt so silly when I clicked on the number one poems for your last contest and realized you did not specifically ask for one liners. Anyway. I do love the one liner contests!! I need to read directions better though.

This radiates poetry beauty while touching emotions of fact and fantasy, a like. I was gladly held by each stanza streaming love's treasures worthy of losing all else. Beautiful. Poetry hugs ... CayCay

Hi Silent, if this were your last poem the soup would be a far sadder place. Your poetry illuminates. As we know it isn't I should just go on with my comment. An excellent write as always my friend. This is more than simple musings, this write comes from the heart, an emotional waterfall that entrances with its poetic grace. You take free verse to a different level. I feel the spirit of the poem. I always feel when I read your poetry. A fave. Your friend always....Mike.
