Lost Forever: A Poem By Moondustwriter


Lost Forever: 
A Poem By Moondustwriter

Could you really be
the all encompassing
reality that I need
to return to me???

How can an image
an idea
make a difference
for living breathing flesh?

Yet - your words
speak clear
of me
and you

If 
I believe

I will be
submerged into the swamp
of lost forever

for you see
my heart and I
are intertwined
as I would like to be
with

"If I believe" - those 3 words just hang there, waiting to tip the balance...and leaves me incredibly curious.

Is our hearts and souls
so intertwined we give all
Must we be lost forever
upon words just spoken
will an image alone last
when time itself moves on

Question only you can answer

Now that's love at work. Excellent expression of the heart.

I've been reading your poem over and over - really curious what it is about - trying to analyze with my mind instead of my heart - maybe a mistake - you're asking questions - not sure to trust yourself - afraid of consequences if you give in - but would love to...?
It's beautiful!

This is lovely. "If I believe" says so much. If one has been hurt, this is often the hardest part of all.

I'm not sure why you chose the photo, but I'm picturing a romantic meeting up there.

Wonderful! Very powerful--as such things of the heart do tend to be.

Alice Audrey said...

That belief is such a fearful step.

Peter Stone said...

I like the idea of the other being the link to reality that helps the writer find themselves again.

If I believe...

I will meet incredible poets who bathe the moon in inspiration.

Thanks for letting me share Thursday with you

Unrequited, hopeful, and yet the trepidation...

That's cool how you pulled the entire poem around from so many questions into those clever last lines that sound very well-placed.
