What Becomes at the End of Words.....

How will it end ...this craving.......the hunger of words
Your words.... each of you touches me
I saw that vision once....in a movie
and it remains with me
and with you

In the vision a crowded place .....wandering
souls moving without form
And a man lost .....wandering....but all
of those hands touching him
or her too .......

In some way .....that's what I feel here
in this space of writing
your hands sliding ...grasping
tearing untill I stand naked
The words are mine and just like
you'res they must continue

Until we have achieved the impossible
until we have all touched .....together
at once and within that touching
We are one
we are one..........

ahorseback, it does sometimes feel like another writer had hold of my pen or me theirs. What a lovely and accurate write you have here. We can never get too many words, consonants, vowels, lines of beauty....

Sometimes words seem scrambled, esp. after reading so much poetry, then i read words like this and it's clear, we are in love with words ( Poetry ) It's what makes us tick, and we are as one, hoping to reach each other in a special way. Thank you. You always make me think. I like that.

What a beautiful poem....I love the way it flows. I really enjoyed reading it. We all have a connection when we write because we all share this gift.

Hello ahorseback. You've spoken for many here who, I believe, have found solace and support in this place..I am amazed that there are so many here who have bared themselves in this venue; who may not have been so open and vulnerable elsewhere. For, it feels as if there are many of us who are similar who have found this place to share, to find support and friends. I am astounded at the intimacy here - unparalleled in other areas of life..I believe this is what you are saying...it is how I read it. UP and Beautiful and Awesome and written so well.

Lucky Cats , Yes ! That is it isn't it . Being 57 now and only writing for about 12 years I do find this intimacy strange and yet welcoming at the same time! As a young man I was very reserved , quiet ,a solitary man but uncomfortable with myself at the same time! As I age I have opened these old doors and the light has come inside a bit , and that is good ! And as to writing , I have learned by so many here , I am not alone! Thank you for understanding! And sharing too....:-}

How I loved this poem ahorseback and you have it so right , and Lucky Cats also.It is because of writers like you that we have all gelled and been able to express and to know that our words are understood.

This brings us up to another level of composing and sharing.

I was such a closed up person and not that long ago either , but everyone here on HP has helped me to open and grow.

Thank you for this gem which I vote up and bookmark as one of my favourites. Thank you my friend and take care

Eiddwen , As you're words have as well touched me . We are lucky ! I know that all of this has somehow liberated a prisoner inside of me. If I have done that in one small way for anyone ,then I am a lucky man! I have finally contributed meaningfully to mankind {and woman}! Thank you for you're words and in symbolism you're hands! If thats all we ever do then somehow we have touched each others insides. Thats a beautiful thing!.....:-}
