In a smoke-filled empty room barely lit
Reclined and unexpectedly keen
Our song saturating the senses with its melodious musings
I lay here pondering the blank page before me
Taut and anxious for my touch
It stares back at me with bated breath
So fragile and irresistible... desirous for depth
And the importation of my meaning
My hands amply spread out
Brushing across this barren landscape
Preparing the blank page for what is to come
My pen teasingly and vigorously growing closer
To that which GOD has provided for divine conception
Creation is a process I say as I put pen to page
In my mind’s eye I watch as our dreams through sighs escape us
Each exhalation a day drifting by on the sea of time
In which rippled wake we see the very drama of our lives
Your attention rapt as my fingertips lovingly paint for you
A scene more powerful than any picture
Each stroke telling a tale so potent that it transcends
The very page upon which it is written
Providing for us something profoundly tangible
From the very soul that adores you
Imparting something lasting as evidence that this love exists
And perhaps leaving a trail back to this feeling
Long after our final sighs
Tonight we will not falter nor be overwhelmed
By thoughts of our own mortality
Or the fear that in the end
It is all for naught
And there really wasn’t anyone listening
No tonight my muse let the heavens echo
From the scribbling of a man
Who once pondered the blank page
And was able to change it
Like those famous lovers
Too soon forgotten

Trying like in all of my poems to make them allegorical and to tell multiple stories at once simultaneously

1 story is the act of creation with the written word
2 story I imagined a couple trying once again to have a child
3 story I imagined GOD creating from the void

No dear sister poet YOUR VOICE inspires me... and I know it for the treasure it is and will not suffer a lack of belief in it ;o)Let us be cooperative - never competing - never lessening ourselves to lift the other - let us instead aspire to be who we are and remain true to our voice. Both growing and enjoying the journey in such a way as we both win and are richer for the opportunity GOD has afforded us :) I for one am excited to see what the future holds as you continue to mine the depths of all that GOD has for you and all that you have to offer.I will endeavor to use your voice for inspiration and to ensure I let you know how valuable it is.GLYASDW-c

Thanks brother.I am still going to work on them. They just arent cIicking for me yet.I try to tell two or more stories simultaneously (allegorically if possible) but somtimes the words get elusive or they start desiring to tell a story of their own.I used to think words where pragmatic but they have revealed themselves to be idealistic dynamic and self-directed. The best I can hope for is to chose the right words as allies to tell the story I want to.I am liking your writing as well!You have a very unique and cool voice that is both real and at the same time exhibits a refinement/skill that comes from being battle tested.Life is a trial by fire and you wear your battle scars well.I'll be sure to comment on yours as well.I respect what you do and how you do it.-c
