Loving in the Light and the Dark

Updated on May 2, 2013

Every beginning

is an ending

connected

with a hidden bridge.

Every long kiss

rushes time

even as it begins.

Every touch

fills and empties

pours into

and hollows out my core.

Each glance in my direction

nourishes

and yet

emaciates as you look away.

The desperate knowledge

of each impending goodbye

fuels my appetite

for the next.

      I love the title---evocative magnetic contrasts! I was especially moved by this part:

      "Every touch

      fills and empties

      pours into

      and hollows out my core."

      That feeling of being hollowed out is something I know well, but you put it into words!! That's what poetry can do....thank you. :-) Voted up, awesome, and beautiful. ~Lurana

      I am glad that you read that in the poem! My intention was to present that dichotomy that exists in the same moment...for better ot worse! And I thank YOU for your lovely compliment!

      Aw, thank you... I'm glad I made you smile. I've been seeing you around for a while and I wish I'd have stopped over sooner! This isn't the last you'll see of me... I'll be reading more of your hubs... I'm just trying to get through my 500+ backed up emails tonight until I can't hold my eyelids open anymore :-)

      This poem, and ' Casualties Of A Poet's War ', are my two favourites by you so far Theater girl; The latter, because it is so fun to read, and this poetic verse, because of the flash of brilliance that runs right through the middle. : )

      Yours Sincerely,

      R.Q.
