Faraway Love

Updated on March 16, 2011

The places I have you hidden are trapped in our place in time
We each have one moment that is ours, the culmination of bliss
And I bury ours in that place awash in colors of faraway love
I hid you as a warrior on a fierce quest of loyalty, covering your beauty
I would open your gilded box of sweet coveted flame for no one
It would spread you out across oceans and seas who would surely lose you
While I would have you here alone, with me, and close.

Time forced upon us another road not sweetened with your caress
One not so lush and bright and full, or awash in colors of love
Nor would this road hear the gentle waves of your voice
Time was cruel for it knew you were enough for my heart
And I spend all my days searching for that old road
The one that let me feel the rush of running to your door
Where we would sit for hours on your sailboat, alone and perfect
You were heaven for my soul, and sun for my body

I keep you sleeping, quietly with me and consider
The echoes that once were heat and flame and dew
I pick them up carefully, as with an aged parchment
Each time I hold them a few more slip through my fingers
I examine those memories and smell the turquoise waters and heat
Feel your love, pure, full of song and meaning, aware of times call
Knowing I have such a small piece left makes me all the more ravenous
And my heart closes, to light, to love, and seeks only solitude.

      Thank you so much, Stephen. Your comment means a lot and it is exactly what I want, I want people to feel the feelings I did, just for a moment, and then we connect. Pretty awesome that you quoted me too. =)

      Wow Maria lovely prose, beautifully written, great images and I love when pieces are written where the reader can feel like they are there. "You were heaven for my soul, and sun for my body" is a great line. Excellent my friend, loved it.
