I Breath Your Name

Updated on May 14, 2012
Source

Breath you name out

Breath it back in

The darkness that I cannot control

Lives inside but wants out

In water

In earth I look at you

As earth you look at me

And we are both seen

I know it is true

But I cannot turn to

That source of comfort and joy

The darkness lives in me

And wants to come out

In water

And for all the things we said

What I wouldn't give for one

More time of hearing it the same

And angry I would be

As you would be at me

And sad is what I am

That it won't happen

Decisions must be made

But I can't make them

Things must be done

But I can't do them

So please come back

And teach me how

Please

I don't want to say

Good-bye

      My pleasure. I am learning to LOOK for the spark of our Creator in everyone and nurture it. And to see the beauty of everyone's soul.

      It is an expression of loss, but of impending loss, not loss already experienced. I don't usually like to talk much about my poems because with any kind of art, beauty is very much in the eye of the beholder and I'm always afraid of destroying whatever pleasure or other emotion the poem generates.

      Thank you so much for reading and commenting. It means a lot to me.

      Whenever we express ourselves it is a good idea, Chris. ONLY you know exactly what you are expressing and the rest of us can only guess or speculate. It says different things to me...did you lose someone? Because it also says to me that the Disciples of Yeshua wanted HIM back the way they knew HIM.

      Thank you very much.

      I just reread it myself. Maybe not such a good idea.

      I think this is a good and powerful poem. I like the emotional pull and longing contained in it. Nice work.

      SHARING it with others.
