Liquid Love

I pour myself 
into you:
cool 
and pure
Changing my form
to fit perfectly 
against your edges.
Liquid Love,
becoming anything
 you want me to be.

But you remain rigid,
and fixed
a stony basin.
not moving an inch.
Catching me 
only for a moment,
before the Sun Sweeps me Up
and I become the vapor 
that sticks 
to another's cheeks.

This is so 'elastic!' I was immediately reminded of the story in Ray Bradbury's "Martian Chronicles" where the Martian melted and merged himself with whomever he was with...Truly a wonderful write! Season's best! ~ Gershon

Love the way this poem slides down my philosophy and enters my core like wine and I drink it up, memories at every gulp. Well done Julia.

Wonderful imagery, love should be fluid, not rigid.

I can see that this poem, as do most effective works of art lends itself to many interpretations. For myself, I love the simple but appealing image sequence that evokes many metaphores and basic truths

Metaphorically beautiful, Julia. If one can't reciprocate love, then no wonder one goes for an alternative solution...moving on! Regards // paul

If someone can't reciprocate love it is best to move on as they will only injure your heart and your spirit. I love this soulful write! Congratulations on your first placement in Brian's contest Julia! : )

I have read this four times; I have no idea why it appeals to me in every direction, in ever essence of me. Since I cannot understand the why, I will explain the how. My soul loves this poem. I have FAVed it, Julia.

What a beautiful thing to say! Thank you so much

tograsp the sounds of your thoughts, I broke it down to read in parts. I name the beginning " the end" so I could read it over and over again. I poured your love into a flute. And dined as if the refreshing liquid would suit. It was forfilling and grand. I instantly became a fan!

This was so cool, I like everything about this. You have created a scene that is easy to imagine even though it is something one has never seen before. If that makes any sense. Anyway, I like this a lot.
