Ghost of my love

Folder: 
Unconsummated

 

In love with the ghost  of yesterday 
dreamlike memories bathed in warmth and delight
covert missions of rendezvous 
pinprick tensions suspended over danger 
adrenalin highs of loves riskè adventures
A closeness with the propensity to lose ourselves in each other 
Always only one moment away from complete immersion in rapture
enveloped by you
you invaded my senses in such an effortless way 
you felt so natural almost worn into me  
yet, you pulled away distracted by some other passing fancy 
and I waited till I had to move 
you were never here, in the moment I'm stuck in, for more than a flutter,
against my better senses 

I still believe you to be all you were and more 
but you were only ever nearly all in 
and my heart refuses to listen 
my soul, it goes by another story
spanning the tenements of time immortal 
its takes no heed of blubbering flesh 
it is merely a host for the tortures of love
and I,

it's conscious expression

Author's Notes/Comments: 

i want to write I really do, but it's just not happening the way it used to. it is what it is I suppose what an you do in just a few minutes. Real poetry takes time, energy, care, effort and molding sidestepping and bee lines oh time why are you so fickle whirlwind when you're not being so damn agonisingly slow!

We're fans is all. Poets are the worst judges of their poetry, by the way. Good stuff - but if I suggested a song: after How Dry I Am, I'd recommend Moon River by Andy Williams. "Wherever you're goin' I'm goin' your way...it's such a lovely world to see..."
