An apparition of lovers.....

Ever see the movie Ladyhawk?


For Michelle

It will be so much safer this way to reach
across an abyss in ghostlike
caress
A supernatural affair is the only
way that no one
suffers
For isn't it the human touch that
causes all of loves pains
When two perfect hearts in any beginning
always end up in emotional
rehab
Imagine for a moment
when you need heartsongs or touch of
my ghostlike arms
surrounding you
Or because what I need is to move you
my own apparition fulfills its
own desires
Yes you see now dont you ......
Just like her the ladyhawk and him the
wolf....he watches over her in daylight
and she him at night
They can only be so human opposite
each other

Yes they spend thier human forms
yearning and in natures form
touching
I reach up in the daylight as you
land apon my leathered
arm for all time
And you my dear lady I protect
with my life as the wolf always
at your side
Then my love the only suffering
is the wanting

I wrote a comment and think it got lost when my Kindle lost Internet connection. This is a fine poem on love and unceasing wanting. Indeed for some of us it never ends. I adore LadyHawk. It is a great and under appreciated movie. Lovely read here ahorseback.

Wow! That is beautiful beyond words - and so true. You found the right words to describe it. I'm sure if the lady reads it, she will be warmed and comforted.
