    Don't touch me, don't gesture, don't even look
    For I am a torn, tattered, out of print book
    that has been closed since the end of our time.
    I am human, I do want to...
    but I don't dare, so I linger in rhyme.
    How can I allow somone to open the cover?
    To skim the pages, to make inferences,
    to become my second authentic lover?
    Such thoughts are too intense for me,
    So I remain content in poetry.

    unfold and define...
    let the pages be turned is how you learn
    and grow....pain and hurt is part of all the
    chapters but at the end once upon
    a time it is happy ending..
    but until you ready just let it flow though poetry...
    sorry i like what you wrote...and i am sort on a
    flow vibe dis morn...hope you dont mind...:angel1:

    I can completely relate but outside of that
    this piece has captured the state of many a poet
    so well....its' amazing how one can live through
    something as beautiful as poetry....

    but as they also say....

    "To much of a good thing can be wonderful"

    and that would be poetry to me...


    great work here!

    Mzblkangel, I don't mind your response, you're just going with the flow. I appreciate the fact that you enjoyed my words enough to comment on them. Life is less than a bowl of cherries for everyone, I know, and when I get stronger I will live fuller. This year has been a very hellish one for me, to say the least. But, my horrific experiences have made me look deep inside and use a talent that I have often abandoned.

    Peace

    The "play on words" came easily to me this morning for some reason. Glad you enjoyed this, SwtT.

    Angelicsage...That I could even attempt to capture what so many masters of words feel in their souls humbles me. Thank you
