Untitled love

Untitled love

it’s inevitable how love refuses to part
with the sunset over the Aegean blue,
it’s unsettling to follow my shadow
wandering between pebbles and sand,
maybe because in your eyes
I see a way to escape the wind shears of life,
maybe because holding me in your arms
feels desirable and right
or just because I realize that
the crumbling snowflakes
are nothing more than ivory- satin stars
triumphantly spinning,
eventually ending the pale mornings.

And it’s hard to resist your kiss
when I’m falling in love,
it’s hard to forget that
there isn’t anything as delicate,
as dazzling,
as solemnly divine
as the dainty sounds of a crispy night,
with bodies drifting back and forth,
like carbon fibers lit
in a game of clouds and flames,
in burning Shangri-la.

and the sudden bells of vulnerability
have no faces, no names,
just sweetness that I want to grab,
grasp, cuddle and squeeze
every last taste of it.

I look at your face and
I am blithely content
in the silence of your presence
but in my veins, in your veins,
oceans gather
all those under water, echoing swirls,
which toil over our holding hands and
I thank the darkness for letting me so near
to the light of your world,
I close eyes in worship
just before every whisper goes
blind and senseless,
just before I find home
in the beauty of stubbornly, teal flowers.

and I wish I could freeze
the phantom of love,
to isolate our breaths,
our first touch
in a lonely equation of space,
surrounded by Damien’s Hirst
butterflies and roses,
where Neruda’s words are
the beats of my heart and
they never stop the gallop
in the tunnels leading to your heart,
they never escape
the stream of Cupid’s arrows,
and river flows in you, in me,
in the Universe,
and rain sparkles everywhere,

because it seems that
I exist only
in the candled lightnings of your smile,
holding fragrance and violets,
and the lullaby of feathers and violins.

    There was something extraordinarily wonderful about this poem… Towards the end, I realized my eyes had actually welled up with tears… Thanks for such an enchanting walk down the romantic paths of this universe, Blaga… And I really mean it when I say you’ve reached another plane with this awesome writing!

    “crumbling snowflakes are nothing more than
    ivory- satin stars triumphantly spinning, eventually ending the pale mornings.” <— What a gorgeous image! This piece is full of them, of course, and you have once again taken us on a journey into that deepest of wells of emotion, the human heart. I especially like the last two lines…I think anyone who has loved would feel how true they are and can relate to that feeling.

    Well, now I have read this several time and find it an interesting poem … and it’s not the imagery, though that is beautiful and original. It is that it so completely captures the exotic bliss and the whispered insecurities (phantom) of romantic love … and the way we want to pin it down and set it free all at once … and we are quite sure the entire Universe is vibrating in unison with us … and, maybe it is. Well done, my friend.

  6. Jamie Dedes Says:

    Ah, the editing never ends. I just made two changes to the “Chasing Light” poem and all morning on a rewrite of my latest short story. Blaga, I so look forward to reading what you do on soulmates. :-)

    Back to see you soon …
