    I've met Her a million times in
    a hundred lifetimes
    but still don't know Her name
    marveled at Her wonders took note of no blunders yet still
    wanting to meet face to face

    like right after the last time,...

    I know we've met before;
    maybe on burgundy beaches
    with black sun-rises in the background......
    Walking upon white rose petals
    as each step took days to complete
    I've lived countless lifetimes
    in so called live situations as the only soul enlightened
    was at the edge of the baby blue pool

    and still can not remember Your name......

    New beginning by swimming under embryonic waves yet
    Crashing came the soul) to end the journey of 270 days.....
    So a new time and new way, new people, places....and a completely new face
    This ain't the face I remember last from the reflecting pool, so fast... You left me
    so cruel, only to have vague memories....
    of beaches so burgundy that every nite on my knees

    I try to find Your name.....

    I have visions of dimensions that aren't even capable
    of living in this atmosphere
    Yet I am trapped here
    a descendant of hate mistrust and fear
    A prisoner of this skin yet we suppose to be
    the closest of kin
    as others mixed the books and created these sins.....
    is this why I can't recall....?

    Are you not to blame
    for this flame of insane
    that now burns in this beating heart...
    Where is that next time
    as shades of crime travel coarsely from seven to nine
    dividing the line
    of reality and absolute truth..,..
    Can I touch the root,
    as to remember your name

    wow...poet, this peace swept me off my feet...
    and then I needed to read it again...so I soared
    through the words of your soul 3 times before replying...
    I sensed...the searching of a soul mate...I could be wrong
    but this is what I derived from these words, touching
    remnants of past lives in the poetic me...

    but allow me to say...I LOVE THIS PEACE....WHOA
    your writing and style was phenomenal...
    it was calm...but raging with passion and questions
    the searching...you could feel pushing underneath
    each stanza...and "Burgundy beaches"....oh I loved that phrase


    Awesome...Awesome Work....Encore Poet, Encore...

    I'm so glad that you enjoyed this, but it's not about a past love....it's deeper than that. I want to wait for a few more responses before I uncover the source. But I am so glad that you are enjoying it!!! Thank you thank you, you don't know how much this means to me

    I thank you both for the kind words of encouragement....

    But it's more than the deepest love a man has for a woman
    It's more than the deepest love a woman has for a man
    It's more than the deepest love a couple share,
    It's the Highest love around.....

    A higher power than us perhaps? Well, whatever you are describing it sounds like a vision almost too stunning to behold.

    Maybe it's the searching for a child? I mean, you said 270 days.... That's about 9 months...
