    So filled up...
    Emotions brimming
    while each corner of my
    mind is slowly skimming
    this poetry that is you.
    Too filled up...
    Certain love ballads...have me
    fighting back the tears
    and the few that do manage to drip
    are filled with joys and fears.
    Bittersweet tears they are...
    Bitter because my arms are too
    short to physically reach you
    Sweet because our auras have actually
    touched, creating a spiritual bond so true
    **** near overflowing
    this ocean of love
    waves crashing in against my soul
    controlled by your moon above
    If I ever allowed this dam to burst
    Oh, what would become of me?
    Would I drown in this sea
    of passionate possibility,
    or overflow in poetry?

    Well put...


    [email protected],
    that touched me, and I'm sure all that read it as well...
    I read this and a very warm flow of sunshine rayed straight through my heart, I smiled when I read this...I really enjoyed reading this.

    Queent, your response made me smile, I am happy to know that my words touched a poet such as yourself. Perhaps it did the same for others, thank you.
    Dams can't hold back the force forever sage, tis true, thank you.
    Rich, hopefully the read was just as deep the second time around. Humbled by your response, thank you.
