Nie bój się kochać

afraid of love i am not

more afraid of losing you

under our tree ill be waiting

for fear to cut me loose

countless nights i vision

prophets speak to me your name

the psychic said he be cloaked in black

and then henceforth you came

with bitter sweetest mercy

the gods opened the sky

the rain fell down, and passion's smell

stoked the wound that met your eyes

you glimmer like a gypsy

distracting yet unseen

and challenge all the questions

that ever silenced me

i need your breath to breathe

your taste against your smell

and once more it means nothing

unless your hands are felt

swing on me the flowers

that grow beneath your soul

and ill show you every part of me

that ever lost control



















secrets lies and reasons

artificial tears

its never been much more than nothing

that's ever brought me here

your body towers over me

so strong and forceful yet

and if you'd only let me

...id pray to be your pet

severe in my intentions

dangerous indeed

none the less i hunger

as they devour me.

truth is that I'm dying

to be still in time with you

and stop the retched tocking

and cradle cacoethes youth.

Nie bój się kochać

i'll never fear you'r love

even thought its power palls my core

it's what my life's become.

...well Steph of better Shakespeare than me - you are a far more gifted poetic writer than I will ever be ..... and I've had the distinct pleasure of watching you grow in this genre too. I can see that you are a kindred spirit of our mutual friend Vincent Moore with grand words like these.

So wonderful to see you again and how you blessed my humble little hubpage with a much loved visit.

Sending you warm wishes and good energy from lake erie time ontario canada 6:11am

I am blessed to be able to read such beautiful thoughts from a beautiful mind like yours Ms Pink. Your words touch my soul indeed. Like magic entering my chamber you bring forth a world that lingers with each breath I take. I long for the day love touches my soul as it did so many years ago.

It's vanquished and left my heart cold and empty for these past years. By finding myself again at these Hubs my muse has once again placed the Quill between my fingers and given me life again. Although lonely without real love from a soul mate I have not found, I have floundered in make believe love of a fool's game.

I am not afraid of Love, it's wings just have not embraced me as yet, a lonely Raven on the road, I hop around and then take flight to nowhere most times. Like a fish out of water and a fox on the run I'm a poet lost in my own words and drowning in sorrows yet still feel the hunger for Love's touch, embrace. Oh how I hunger for it so much.

You lift this old tired warrior up with your beautiful words and I am truly thankful to have read your words you leave and share here on my timeline. Interesting word timeline, huh? How much do we have left, we wonder. Feel me wrap my thankfulness around you for thinking of me, I am truly honored and humbled. You are a fine poet and you must continue to share your gifts with the world.

Lovely @the pink umbrella, this was a beautifully written poem with real emotions being spilled all over the page here.

I also love the imagery here as well, and the final one the Raven, oh so sharp it appears, and as if it is watching us all. Nice stuff!
