    Deeply engulfed in
    The pain of loneliness
    Sinking and choking back
    The tears of solitude
    There is no comfort
    To this pain
    There is no pill to take
    To put my heartache to rest
    There is humility
    Buried in suffering
    An intimacy experienced
    When you really look into you
    A diamond you appear to be
    But a closer look
    You’re flawed like me
    Never the less
    I choose you
    There is a word beyond love
    It defines how I feel
    For you
    I love you
    Beyond
    Expression

    LadyBelle,

    This is confirmation that we are but dirty rags compelled to love one another, and some truly understand its profoundness by going Beyond, thanks sweetheart!

    Outside of my heart
    is a pain from loneliness
    hidden under my soul
    we both have bath inside
    these deeply waters of nowhere
    no one to caress my existance
    where i suffer most but i saw you
    there in sparkles of grain
    up closer you was just an image
    yet i allowed you inside me
    embracing the words of love
    which can't be express or compared
    yet it's defined by your hands
    touch me again !

    And I reply........
    If I could shape this love
    Into mere words
    That would be easy enough
    To mold my thoughts
    So that my meaning
    As meaning
    BEYOND loving
    BEYOND the emotional
    There is a place
    Deep in the heart
    There is a moaning passion
    That only the touch of a lover
    Could suffice
    Love is more than
    The sensual caress
    More than a tender kiss
    Love is opening the heart
    And the accepting of imperfection
    And loving
    In spite of
    LoVe

    Clyde,
    Sometimes we get consumed in the idea of love but lack joy. I wanted to capture the experience of true happiness that is shared beyond love, which is loving inspite of love. Thank you for feeling me.

    Upon da river of love
    is where i lone to enter
    beyond da slitter of love
    i vow to vast inside
    this place of joyful joy'
    where a true lover stay
    within da heart
    and circle da soul
    i stumble at the helms
    of such beauty
    and wish upon da star
    as love defines itself of me
    pass sensuality
    but at the door step
    of da spirit
    here's where i got lost
    come save me !

    LadyBelle,

    Oh no, you are the clear in the clarion call. Now is a good time to explain to you what some of the others know of me, that as a true romanticist, I require a break from reading our poets/poetess,' from time to time.' So, know that during these periods of absence, I'm still here and participating, just not fully, having gotten so full on the feast, do you understand what it is I'm saying? Hit me with a write, if you do! Sounded like James Brown for a minute, huh :).

    Clyde, I am just seeing this message so forgive me for responding late. I think I understand what you are saying. Speaking for myself, I love to write about all of my experiences good or bad, romantic or destructive. But too much of anything can be draining on the spirit. Thank you for your honesty.

    LadyBelle,

    A very sweet person you are to apologize for a late response. Thank you for that. My intent was to not shock you in any way, since you are quite new here. And you seem to fully understand that words are very dear to me, and I tend to take them to heart, rather easily, and overwhelmingly.

    They fire me up, so to speak, they become as darts hurled toward the enemy, when in actuality our enemy is invisible. So, when one is already filled with truth, extra becomes overkill, which is to say an over-abunance. Hence, it is the overflow that becomes wasted, not so much as the spirit draining, as you have said.

    This is how I see it, and this is how I control it, and that, by taking a break. Your virtue is in recognizing the honesty that is within me, which cannot be taken away from you!

    You are a gorgeous Lady, in all respects, and your husband should be very proud to have LadyBelle.
