will you catch me
if i fall?
i am jaded by my past that haunts me
the wild are free
i always love their mirrors
that show me
it was already yours…

Falling without fear into the luminous ocean. Dancing with laughter as we drown.
How else shall the human worm
It is meant to be like this.
We have forgotten.
Mirrors flashing in mirrors…
“the face we had before the world was made”
with crinkly eyes smiles.
We have forever been, all of us,
beautiful response, blake.. .you are magical
thats the fear which haunts us too often, will our loved one be there when he/she will be needed most.
beautiful, tender sketch of fears of a lover.
a beautiful place to be…
“the wild are free
love the “ands”. just love them
the ‘ands’ do add to it, huh. i liked the flow… makes it more dramatic (which it is 🙂
thanks, it spoke deeply to me.
I love how you threw the ‘yes…’ in there – it slows the reader down, draws us in more. Excellent.
it’s also a way to cut off the person who thinks a lot, when really that is the only answer she wanted to hear. 🙂
It has been said that we love that in others which reminds us of ourselves..I hope your love will/would catch you if you fell, and I can imagine that you would do the same. 🙂 Lovely write.
Tender one … pulls you in … thank you for sharing. ~becca~

I’m visiting from Poetry Picnic.
To see ourselves in the eyes of love & to know (s)he will always be there for us, no matter what trial or tribulation might befall us is something truly special.
Thanks for sharing & visiting.

What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger.
