Do you know that sometimes, when is dark,

-really dark

your ghostly eyes do light my path, like white, slow fires,

and in their flames I see desires?

-you think I’m blind?-

Is it true that, sometimes, when it’s cold,

-truly cold-

your icy lips do freeze the sweet and soft caresses

and all I hear is bitter guesses?

-you think I’m deaf?-

Have you see that, sometimes, when love dies,

-actually dies!-

your hopeless heart still speaks its free, wild prayer

and I am tortured by despair?

-you think I’m voiceless?-

Oh, don’t you know that silence screams the coldest blasphemy?

It turns my soul into a scene for wild obscenity!

It shouts into my helpless agony…

-that you are lost-

It isn’t quiet in its cruelty!

-When all we are is dust in savage wind,

you think I’m made of stone?-

  2. Just so strong. Love the emotions that run through the poem. The end really hit me hard. Packs a punch really. “You think I’m made of stone?” Really resilient and strong.

    1. Thank you with all my heart and soul! The end was hard to write, it spoke about a long lasting sadness and the power to look straight into its core.
      Thank you for feeling it! I’m grateful beyond words! 🌹♥️

      1. My absolute pleasure Claud. Sometimes it does get very difficult to find the words well enough to convey that storm of emotions within us without making it seem flat, and believe me when I say this, you have just struck a chord in everybody’s heart.
        Just wonders in those words. I hope to read even more of them. Glad to have had this conversation.
        Love and peace to you.
        Take care!
