We'll Always have San Andreas

-rearranging the stars-

How could we agree to separation? 
If you were destined to be my soulmate,
Why would we allow the stars to change our fate?
They've written in a fresh verse 
Sewing in a new song, soon to be sung
The Stars are not to blame
The fault lies deep within our hearts

Like earthquakes wondering through the years
separating silicone valley of tears.
Sweeping sweet dreams far away
What has become of my day?
Today the sun sets holding on to old hope
Tears fall down a sudden slope

Now my dreams are drowning down another road
Tonight I sit under the aspen cold
Alone, no longer in search of gold
Naming nights you whispered words of love to my soul

Your love no longer speaks 
Without warning, the Midas touch slowly fades
In my chest  -  I find fault  
The sound of heartache echoes every day
Rejuvenating every crack from display
In plain sight, I search for thee
The sun  -The moon  -The madness  -The Salton Sea
My heart no longer speaks

Everything I dream of sinks like the night
Stuck in quicksand  -- the aftermath
Healing scars the aftershock left behind
Finding ways to fill the gloom
Alas bridal curtains sit silently in my room
Setting boundaries between Earth's poetic plates
Like an earthquake passing through my heart 
You left like the moon, moving mountains apart

IS THERE SOMETHING YOU forgot TO TELL Me, dear
Suddenly, San Andreas Fault looks tragic from here
Until then I will hold my breath
In hopes, our Plates will meet again

A very gorgeous, though tragic love story, PD. Hats off to you. You are one mighty fine poetess. Such great creative writing skills. Just perusing your poems, I'm learning the diff poetic styles very quickly. Couldn't ask for a better mentor. The fans have spoken: you're just our average savant. Ha ha ha. But a beautiful one at that. Keep the love and knowledge flowing, my dear. Much love and respect to you.

Hi Linda, once more the depths of your emotions shine through in this excellent write. The words build up such a canvas before us they enter our hearts to stir our emotions. You paint such brilliant images as your words seem to flow forth with such ease. As always, you lay down your work in your own inimitable style. This has to be a seven and into my faves Linda....Vlad.
