Silence

BLISS

Until the moment
Turns into nostalgia
Two poets speak
Without words

Your mere glance
Expresses emotions
I could only dream of capturing
With plain letters

Your silent smile
Rests on my lips
You wear my love
On yours

The silence
Is our only witness
When our hearts vow
Without metaphors or similes


and the way
Your hand searches for mine
In the stillness of the night
… wordless poetry.

AGONY

A weary heart hides
Within the shadows of ebony
Still waiting for the pianist
To place her fingertips
On the ivory keys
And pierce
The deafening silence
Of an unwhispered goodbye
With a melody that a heart
Wishes to hear
In order to sing again

Unspoken words haunt me
I will listen to them
I will interpret them
I will cherish them
Until
They will eventually heal me
When I learn
How to compose music
Out of silence

Journey

It is time to go
But let me just disappear
Into this poem
For a while

Words drip out slowly
Like honey
Or the cherished dream
That once poured out from your lips
And flowed into my mouth

The setting sun plays an immortal hymn
For the moon
Her love is not unrequited
It is just out of reach

The waves break on shore
They carry ancient love letters
So that the beach would never have to be
Skinless

In awe I listen to the rolling sea
It calls out my name
Just like your gaze before
The one that said forever
And I drowned in your eyes
Time after time
Without fear

A solitary pilgrimage
Beneath the night canvas
Painted with sighing stars
With nothing to hold
But memories, dreams
And my undying hope
Faith

Miles away, worlds apart
Footsteps heading in separate directions
Yet you still are my beacon
The indescribable beauty of the nightfall
The soothing stillness of my lonely walks
When I am trying to finish off the story
That never ends but constantly evolves

Perhaps our fingers intertwine again
In another eternity
All we have to do is whisper
Our magic word
And the Universe will remember

Like the sea and the sky
Two souls
Once united
Will always be connected
Somehow
Somewhere in time

Under My Skin

Nearly two months on WordPress. I am deeply touched by your love and encouragement. Thank you (145 times).

This is my first poem on WP – for no specific reason. I just wanted to test how “re-blogging” works.  I also slightly edited the original.

I have two really important deadlines approaching, but I’ll try to get something new posted soon. I’m not going anywhere, and I will definitely enjoy your work during my writing and editing breaks.

Hope you all have a wonderful, inspiring week. Happy writing!!

Echoes and Reflections


There is
An unforgettable story
Resting
Under my skin
Waiting
To be told

A poetic masterpiece
We outlined
While our lips
Melted together
In a sensuous surrender

Powerfully devouring
We became one
Strong
In heart, body and soul

Your smile
Found a home
On my lips
The infinity
Of your eyes
Stole my breath

As we traveled
To the heights
We had never
Experienced before

There is
A devastating story
Hidden
Within my heart
Longing
To be released

A fairytale
We dreamt and lived
On a journey
To a destination
Where we never arrived
Together

La Solitudine

A deserted beach
Footprints
Only in my heart

Deep divine sea
Crystal blue sky
Complemented
By the hopeful beams
Of the maternal sun

The careless wind blows
Bittersweet memories
Unlived dreams
From the times
When I was
Your long-awaited
Once in a lifetime

Tomorrow

An unknown destination
On the horizon
Veiled by the tender mist
Of my past

Eyes closed
Breath held
I imagine

The sound
Of your
Returning footsteps

Time
After
Time

In solitude

Only an Ocean Away

A walk by the sea
Of my own imagination
Searching for the words
For one of the many
Yet unwritten compositions
My soul sings
Without lyrics

Aiming to still portray
How it felt to love her –
With all of me
How it felt to be adored –
By her heart
How her soul entwined with mine
In the deepest meaning of the word:
Intimacy

The longing north wind
Quietly weeps her name:
soft, melodic and merry

I don’t have to wander
The trails of yesterday
So that I could find her again
She is still in a sacred place
Where I once welcomed her

The slumbering waves sigh
They evoke memories of the moments
When we fell asleep hand in hand
When my touch was more than a touch

I whisper my four lettered confession
To the place
Where the sea joins the sky
With an invisible kiss

Infinite sea,
Please carry my love to her shore
To the place
Where she nourishes her soul

Tell her
I’m never alone
On my endless exploration journey
There is always hope
Walking by my side
Gratitude in my heart

The memory of our love
