Human Treasure

Lonely hour with no rest
Dreaming of your arms
Tightly wrapped around my breasts.
Faceless hero, conqueror of my heart,
Cherisher of my soul,

You stand there in the dark,
Unaware that I exist.

You wonder who I am, and where?
As you wander through daily steps ,
Finding and losing yourself all over
Again and again.

 

As time passes, I can’t but ponder,
Whether you and I grow closer,
Or step apart further,
Floating on opposite streams,
Flowing aimlessly,
Unable to sense the directions of the wind.

 

Treading on wide grounds,
Sided blind by wondrous escapes,
Angels and snakes, we keep on walking.
Plentiful Earth has turned starved and lonely.
Joyful mountain rides and abyssal cliffs
Stand in our way. Day after day,

 

I wonder… will we meet?

  1. This is beautiful ❤️. Sad, but beautiful. The opening lines I know to well, when you wake up unable to sleep with your mind forcing feelings onto limbs to live out its fantasies.
    I do wonder that at times. How or when will I ever meet that special person, and how will I know it’s them? Maybe they left that coffee shop 2 minutes before I got there because I stopped to wait for the traffic lights before crossing. Or maybe I just live my life normally and I just happen to run into someone during some everyday situation that just happens to be the perfect girl for me at the imperfect time and I don’t see her for what she is. Is cupid just playing a cruel game of chance with all of us 😅?
    All I know is, keep being you and you’re bound to meet your perfect man eventually. You’re too beautiful a soul not to attract him when he sees you 💕

    1. I don’t see it as sad ^^ but I see how it could be perceived that way. To me it is just a series of questions I can never answer in the present but ask myself anyway, once in a while.

      You know I am very happy. I don’t mind being on my own a lot. I have wonderful friends that truly see me and that means the world to me.
      It is all about being open to meeting people, one day, I believe you are bound to be attracted to someone in a relationship that will evolve beyond friendship.

      Thank you for the way you see me. Maybe I will and I am sure you will too. Meanwhile single souls have to work on ourselves and be happy and grateful for all we have already.

    Everything. The picture, and your words remind me of what drew me to your artistry all those months ago. Such feeling, draws the reader helplessly then hopefully; following you as if a soul shadow following. The adventure has begun and it shall be something to write about dear heart, just as all these chapters are ❤

    I love this verse most for it conjures up exactly how i feel when i pass through some place and feel like an imprint was left behind by someone or something before me telling me it was just there before me, you capture this moment of atoms colliding so preciously. the finding and losing ourselves over and over again because we doubt our intuition, you so wondrously described the feeling of waiting and letting love find us after much disappointment.

        1. Yes, you did 🙂 your exact words were: “I lose and find myself all over again and again it seems Hailie, though i think i am lost more than found”.
          Thank you for thinking so and telling me. I am always grateful for your lovely words, I treasure them. ❤

    I always feel inspired after reading your words to create some words of my own 😊 but I am curious to know the process. Do you just begin to write or do you have an idea/emotion in mind?
    And the confidence to share your art? Where do you find that?

    Anyway, loved reading and especially love the photo 💙

    1. Hey lovely B! I am glad I can inspire you to dig into your own creativity ❤️
      The process varies. Sometimes I write because of an emotion, a moment, a place that I find absolutely stunning (especially when it comes to songs or poetry) Other times I start from a theme, an idea or I explore a world that is already thriving in my mind.
      As for the confidence, it comes with practice and the assurance that I have found a safe space to share. WordPress is full of wonderful, talented writers who support each other. Also, what have I got to lose in sharing what I write or what I think?
      The picture was taken in the south of the Alps, close to where my grandmother lives.
      Hugs my Bola! See you very soon!
