My Lover in The Mist . . .

Aishwarya Rai Bachan
Aishwarya Rai Bachan
Angel in the mist
Angel in the mist
My vision in the mist
My vision in the mist
Her lovely face in the mist
Her lovely face in the mist
Lonely angel in the mist
Lonely angel in the mist
Dreaming angel
Dreaming angel
A seeking angel who seeks for me
A seeking angel who seeks for me

You are “the” woman, I had, I kissed, I loved, I missed

But now, you are only my torment, my lover in the mist.


Why, where, how did we meet? Why the food and rags on my feet?

You were “the” goddess my life, my station, I risked.

But now, you are only my phantom prey, my lover in the mist.


I woke to your silken hair, your name? Your softness, priceless bliss

Your eyes I met, your heartbeats I forget and secrets I forget to list

But now, you are only my pain, my happiness in the mist.


I was mad for your lips, so red, so full, how was it you wist?

Now I just crawl and feel my soul inside my angered head just bend and twist

But now, you are only my laughing lover standing in some invisible mist.


What demon, what monster made you lay and leave

Clutching my heart, waving, rocking, you hiding my sleeve

I never asked, never dreamed, just held steady my olden fist

But now, you are only my sight, in some forlorn vagabond mist.


Alas, cruel, soulless sundown so mocking, laughing like the *brute

My sight, my sound, my words of loving you ran moot

I died twice in your arms and no savior did I enlist

But now, you are only a shadow, in an ancient unfound mist.


Oh, for one moment more, dear Lilah, my angel, my match, my whore

No laws could keep such a heart, but life alive, the beast drove out your life

Just one sunrise, the kiss in your eyes, to hold, to say, to insist

But now, you are only my sorrow, in what used to be a mist.


*one meaning in pre-first century for satan

This is haunting and beautiful at the same time, Kenneth. Nice job!

Another wonderful poem! And thank you for providing the definition for the way you intended to use the word "brute". Reading it as "Satan" has a more powerful meaning than when I was thinking about "a savage person".

Another show of what a talented poet you are Kenneth. Very well written. Voted up.

So very different from your usual funny articles, and so full of depth of emotion, it is really surprising coming from you. Well done.

It drew me in like steel to a magnet. Excellent imagery and a great collection of words. I had to look up "wist" and I like it.

Very nice expressions and great pictures!

I was touched to see the Indian beauty, Aishwarya Rai's photo at the top.

You expressed so much in few words. Thanks and voted up!

bravewarrior,

I appreciate your analogy, my friend. Sometimes when the physical is low, sick and spent, the spiritual then comes alive.

God bless you.

Hi, sheilamyers,

You are very appreciated by me, my good friend. Yep. Brute is every dimension points to satan (no capital letter).

I would not be able to write unless it were for the mercy of God and ALL OF YOU cherised followers.

I mean it, sheila.

Have a Safe weekend.

Grand Old Lady (who is NOT old)

I love what you said about this poem. I love comical pieces, but a part of my heart pulls me toward a more-sensitive place many times.

Thank you for being my friend and follower.

Peace.

Hey, Eric,

Steel to a magnet? Wow, what a profound end result. Thank you for being such a great inspiration and mentor to me.

I have no punchline due to my mind and body being run down.

Have a Great Post-Halloween.

Mr. Kenneth Avery you've done it again.

Your masterpiece was very thought out and very appealing. I loved the way you described this women in the mist and it's unbelievable twist.

Beautifully writing:)
