Some Promises need to be broken

Soulmates II

Still straining to see past the moonlit flights of fancy 

the racing heart of the devil may care passion 

still even though by agreement we left it,

I find myself craving our particular brand of painful madness.

I ask you on the wind if you still miss me?

still straining to hear your soul answer mine

the self imposed banishments could not last forever 

it was too good to last 

Yet, not right in countless ways to go on,

it all seems so small and irrelevant now

I hope a quiet hope,

that ill see you once more 

that I will lift my spirits in your eyes

and feel once again alive! 

How I miss you, I miss you in my bones 

i need you and the devil may care but I don't 

the promise still unbroken,

But, I just need to be close. 

To feel okay under your knowing smile

To see you alive, and well and happy,

or are you now as dead as I?

Ssmoothie! The last line

Ssmoothie! The last line makes the whole poem! 


...because my love,

What is life, but love in motion?

A constant churning,

A burning,

A sometimes seemingly



Cycle of









Breath and yes,

Death mixed in


From the very day we are born,

Leaving its mark deepest

On some moments we are feeling forgotten, 


And with eyes open to this we can rejoice,

In knnowing that even our very death

Is our own choice.


Take my body if you will,

But our souls, my love,

Belong unto only each savior's will,

Some in the hands of devils,

Others' in a  wading pond unclaimed,

Mine belongs to love,

Without blame,

Without shame.






...and he asked her, "do you write poetry? Because I feel as if I am the ink that flows from your quill."

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

I like the line "I miss you

I like the line "I miss you in my bones." It makes me think of how depression can lead to physical pain.
