Words I've Never Spoken

Words I’ve never spoken
are those I’ll never write,
like words that might recall
the glow I felt one night. . . 
One choice lifetime’s fragment
I took for paradise. . . 
a time for which my memory
alone cannot suffice.

One summer’s whispered end. . .
your feel, your touch, your scent,
your lashes on my cheek,
the pure enrapturement. . .
your hands and hair like silk,
your pause to gaze on me -
they seem more an illusion now
than past reality.

Words I’ve never spoken
are those I’ll never write,
like words that might recall
the glow I felt one night. . . 

No words can bring to life
the fleeting ghost of you.
You haunt my empty hours;
there’s nothing I can do,
for if you think of me,
I guess I’ll never know.
And how you made me thrill
no words can ever show.

Words I’ve never spoken
are those I’ll never write,
like words that might recall
the glow I felt one night. . .

I think I missed reading this very romantic write from before, Andrea-- this is really heartfelt and I can't help but think that this is about that Spanish guy of yours... I hope I remembered him right & thanks for dropping by my muse poem :) one itty tidbit-- I actually wrote that when the contest hadn't even been posted yet-- no idea that Susan would post such a theme! Freaky, huh? I just honestly felt that way about my muse, heehee :) ok I gotta go... hugs to you sweetie & congrats here!

Oh my gosh. You were in the zone on this one. I don't usually pick at poems. But on your second stanza, seem now more an illusion seems to flow better. Maybe you just didn't catch that yourself. Maybe you don't agree.WELL! Good luck in the contest. :)

very poetic and deep. great flow. I really love your last verse. it's so true about memories, that words can't bring them to life like they were. it does seem more like illusion or a fantasy instead of the past. awesome write!

Wow Andrea this is really deep! The first 4lines build the structure for this monumental write along with the title, supporting to the theme of this brilliant entry! Each verse is spellbinding and you deliver a fine performance on sharing little thoughts of this unquestioned individual, spoken through words! Magnificent!
