To Breathe "You" In....

Your beautiful name, echoing throughout my thoughts "Everyday!"....But I never tell you this? Sometimes when I breathe, I close my eyes to imagine Breathing, everything that you are, to me, deep within.... And it is then, when I can feel your heart, beating, next to mine As I hold you in my arms, my soul melting, to these rushing waters, inside These dreams of countless moments, that I dream, with you by my side Sometimes it hurts, so profoundly, this pain, when you are not there These endless reflections, which tear at my being, my existence Mixed amid smiles of longings, of what I hope, may someday be!? Every beat, every breath, every second of my life Filled with you, and you alone, forever in my sight! I do not need to paint these things, upon a canvas of colors For what good are they, to me anymore? When all I want, they can no longer hold; because, they hold not "You" My eyes are saddened sometimes, as they desire your beauty, but find you, never there My soul~How can I explain this, yearning that I have!? How? As I question, what happened upon this path? For it seems so long, since I have felt this way.... These searing flames, more and more, everyday! And all I know, is that right now, as I breathe you in A thousand years, would not be enough, time, to share with your life Anything, less than eternity, I believe, would tear me in half This, is how much, I truly love "You!" And not even the most amazing words, within this world, that were ever written Could make it any truer~As I gaze, into your endless eyes ~ I would give you the stars, this I know, as I have given you my life To walk along the shore with "You"~To walk, through the tides of time.... Is all that I shall ever want, and all, that I shall ever need! Watch me bleed, without your splendor, here ~ Can you feel my passion? Can you feel my love? Calling to "You," within every moment, that I wake Dreams, inside my heart~My raging soul, which burns, for "You" A torch, until the ends of time~Can you hear it, calling too!? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ To breathe, your beauty, within....

my dear friend john thanks for taking the time to comment on my poems,you are so kind to me,you ve asked me a question and since you dont do soupmail i answer here,many times my writes are about me or someone very close to me,yes that Haiku was about me infact,reflecting a dark moment,but it never lasts long cause God is great and everyday is another present so it isnt fair to feel darkness in all this light--thanksnfor being a loyal friend,hope i am to you too,and hope all is well for you;)-c.c

I hope the lady you penned this for appreciates these powerful emotions and tensions! There are few men that will pen such emotions and whilst such feelings are very personal, it's so uplifting to share and know there are those caring souls out there! Smiles. Thanks for your lovely comments, hope you are having a lovely day, Happy Easter, Anna-Marie.

Thank you John for your tender comment, and caring nature after reading my last poem. I was writing about my Dad, who spent his last few years living with us, after he couldn't be alone any longer...those were memories of that time, as we were losing him. Thank you for your thoughtfulness. We all have those times, I've been thinking on this rainy day ...and writing helps clear my mind. ~ Love, Carrie

Beautifully penned from your heart, John. It flows with loving tenderness and a subtle, though still powerful, yearning. A declaration of love...an attestation of loyalty, and perhaps of Faith? Truly, you have the heart of a romantic! This is filled with wonderful metaphors and imagery...ones we can all enjoy and appreciate.:) Wishing you and yours the best...God's blessings to you! Love to you, Mikki
