Falling in love again

Updated on June 9, 2010

I'd crept into the deepest darkest place,
Where life and love no longer saw my face.
My heart was cold, my very soul was dead.
My only solace, memories in my head.

You came to me and caught me unaware,
And unprepared, I fell into your lair.
I struggled as you crawled into my mind,
Afraid of what your loving me might find.

And as I stayed resistant to your touch
You never turned away, instead t'was such
an oh so gentle nudging at my soul
that woke me with your ever sweet cajole

'Til finally I melted in your arms
Unfolding as a child would, free from harm.
I gave myself completely, so beguiled.
A whole new world had opened when you smiled.

      Yes, Kentucky is a beautiful state. With the poetry, it's not a knack, it's a skill. You have to first let it flow, then go back and tighten it, infuse it with imagery and make sure it has rhythm and cadence.

      Well done!

      The knack of writing poetry still evades me, but I'm working on it.

      BTW, I lived on a farm in Casey County Ky. for a few years. Beautiful country. I miss it.

      I like it! It expresses the spectrum of feelings. The lines I love best are:

      "I struggled as you crawled into my mind,

      Afraid of what your loving me might find."

      I echo Denny's comment and would like to add how beautifully you captured that moment of awakening out of a long-held and protected resistance..."And as I stayed resistant to your touch / You never turned away, instead t'was such / an oh so gentle nudging at my soul / that woke me..."

      Thumbs up! You have a new fan.

      What a beautiful piece, loved it! And such good encouragement to others to dare, one more time, in spite of feeling burned out emotionally, to love once again, discovering they can now rest in the loving. Thank you for the word treat! Blogging this on over to my poetry blog for everyone else to enjoy too! Thanks for writing it.

      it is so nice to get all of this support from the community. it really makes it all worth while. Well.......... I'd probably be writing anyhow, but it's so much better when someone responds. Thanks so much.

      Ditto for me, Alkehouse. I found the title very intriguing. The sentiments expressed in the poem itself very familiar. So hard to let love in the second (or third) time. Much easier to stay closed and hardened. Love the "melted" imagery. Lovely. More, please!! MM
