Quarantine of the Soul

-Quarantine of the Soul-

Tranquil pills fall deep like the night
A sweet fangless course
Bites with no remorse
Your eyes struggle to read my ageless soul
You open a heart under Quarantine 
The past
The present
The future
Stand in the way of what was and never will be
A contagious disease
I call "LOVE!"

(Past-- you came)
Somewhere deep inside --with you--
The Maverick 
The Majestic
The Arriving Vessel of Light
I separated myself from the world
 --to be with you--
I polished a new diamond night
With pleasures of meeting where our hearts began
Deep like the night, you woke my sleepless soul
Removing it from the safe harbor of the sea
-Isolated from all to see
No risk or chance, of smiling endlessly 

(Present-- you set)
Tonight you fell from Mandalay
You spoke in a way that Cut my throat with truth 
You detained my ego clouding the auspices sky
Allowing a smile
A tender peek into your heart
It spread in ways -- I wanted more 
I kept deep until you found your way past the door
Persistent memories 
In search of eternity
Tonight lets learn to live again
With no fear, I remove all labels
Making the moon and sun rise together
My love, my life now depends on you

(Future-- you left)
With no explanation
The age of Quarantine will forever set

You came to me
Set me free
Just to leave 

Now you are a virus --- Just like them!!!

Wow! This required several reads as the strength of emotions never abated, your words starkly honest, speaking to the anguish felt yet the vulnerability and what you cherished, is heartbreaking. A profound piece rich in emotional truths, beautifully written. A pleasure to read and re-read. blessings, lynn

Hey Linda, magnificent piece!! You had me hanging onto every single word. It really describes the angst and frustration of the speaker, as well as the goodness experienced even after the fall. Amazing down to the last letter. Oh, and I apologize fro not answering your question soon enough. I live directly below Houston, TX. Hit me up whenever you like Linda. And, as always, lets go where the winds don't blow so strange. Robert

Sounds like the hurt that never leaves. I can identify with that. Some of us hold on to things. That is tough. Thank goodness there are outlets like this. You are a gem!

PD, A marvelous free verse write in every respect here. "Love," that great emotive force will do it every time. Your gift of verse and relative storytelling here most certainly steps the reader through the essence of the "Quarantine of the Soul.' Very Well-Done!! A "7" + FAV!! Best Always, Gary
