l u P e z

 

I stare into your eyes and see the infinity, it calls me endlessly

And I gather every morsel I can, like a wild animal in your mind at times,

A sensuous delight in your bed, consumed by our hunger for us,

Brightening the darkest moments in our heads.

 

When we are apart I try to figure out where I should start,
It seems like I've missed days, even weeks sometimes,
I think about you and the questions cascade like a waterfall in my mind,
And always, somehow, I feel so left behind.

 

You're like a cryptogram, unsolved,
And I can never figure out why all of the letters match up
Except for that one that screws up the whole thing again,
My tongue is tied in knots as I struggle for the words, it's absurd.

 

When I was a kid, my father used to say I was ungrateful,
I never felt that way, I just had a lot of questions,
Life seemed so puzzling, and it's still a puzzle, often,
But I don't think I'd be happy any other way.

 

I love you with all my heart, and probably always will,
Because I can't ever know all of your pieces is not a big deal,
What I get from you means so much more,
And anyway, whatever piece I'm missing seems to fit perfect.

 

Love,
z

Author's Notes/Comments: 

The missing piece to someone else's puzzle usually is you.

 

This poem was inspired by the amazing and lovely Dovely.

Just...

breathtaking Nightlight!, and the music flows so well with this piece!

I felt as if I had fallen into a story of my own thoughts.

There is nothing wrong in trying to break down everday things,

hell, I do it, even in sleep! haha.

This was beautiful! I loved it! <33

Thanks. I'm glad you liked it. It's lke a muse for me to analyze and pick things apart. I do love puzzles too, but like everything, they can get to you if you don't take a break form them! ;-)

 

Thanks for commenting to, Ashes. <3

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "

Stitch me under the nightlight

 

Fold me under 

 

and press your needle 

 

into the fabric

underneath

 

Pull the thread through

 

and press the needle in

 

again

 

Stitch me under the nightlight

 

Wrap me around your delicate heart

 

press your needle in 

 

pull the thread

 

tight

 

and again

 

and again

 

until it's impossible

 

to tear us apart

 

 

Stitch me under the nightlight

 

 

Stitch me under the nightlight

 

Stitch me under the nightlight

This

is a brilliant form of deductive reasoning, to say the least.
Aristophanes said "Humans originally had four arms, four legs, and a single head made of two faces. It is said that humans had great strength at the time and threatened to conquer the gods. Fearing this, Zeus developed a creative solution by splitting humans in half as punishment for humanity's pride. Each human would then forever long for his/her other half; the other half of his/her soul. It is said that when the two find each other, there is an unspoken understanding of one another, that they feel unified and would lay with each other in unity and would know no greater joy than that." -~paraphrased~


And it also looks like you'd be a rather talented songwriter too.

Thank you RoC, for your comment about Aristopanes!! I love to hear about those philosophers, and am not a big reader. I'm glad you enjoyed this <3  :-)
