    Timelessness

    Even when the elements split the earth in me
    and fling my crumblings into the scattered emptiness
    of worlds ground to crushed chaos and smashed collision,
    your Love will be my beacon thru the rubble
    blinking in the nothingness,
    dodging past the brokenness
    and guiding me 'til end of Time.

    And when Night caves in from stars sucked out
    by Age, leaving days and shattered suns
    slipping down Eternity at a million midnights per second,
    your Love will be my flame in the black wind
    blistering in the coldness,
    emblazing me with boldness
    and fusing me to your Love divine.

    And when I measure my Life,
    not by the number of breaths I take
    but by your moments which take my breaths away
    and not by the number of aches I’ve caged in heartbreaks
    but by your conquest of my plundered ones set free.
    Breathless may be the light of all precious stones
    but only your Love shines the polished gem of me.

    For I’m stained glass, lost at night,
    with a longing waiting mindless
    in a trembling fingered blindness
    for that moment rendered timeless
    when your Love dawns the darkness
    and I bathe in shafts of Light.

    I loved it
    There was something so tender about every word that just touched me

    JusDatNice - I tried to tap into the "romance" in all of us. In an attempt to express the visions I saw, these words came out. I am so very happy that you enjoyed them and I do appreciate your comments. They put a needed smile on this poet today and I hope its tenderness remains etched in the heart. Namyh

    Magnificent!!!

    Harry...oh Harry! Where do you live again...you married, right? LOL

    Boy...if I met a man talking to me like that....hmmm....I would send him to work with a smile on his face EVERY day.....


    This right here...yeah, this is that old school love...that back in the day love....that type of love that the temptations would sing about, all huddled around one mic.....have the girls in the audience, gettin all hot and bothered and fallin out.

    Harry!! Oh, HArrry Ahhhhhhh! We would scream....a girls dream!

    Magnificent piece!

    sweet apple*pie,

    Now, I have told you once, but you didnt get it. So, I'ma gonna tell you one more time, you are too young to know anything about what you have said, in other words, you are talking way above your head, now:).

    You are a good sport and all that, but, what else are you cooking besides that Apple Pie:) Big Smile lol
