kisses from home

Come, my darling,

sit close and time will

whisper things to you

no man can ever hear;


as grains of sand,

I'll pour affliction

through your hands

and you will feel my fear.


With quivering lips,

I'll show how once

the air I breathed electrified

and I was made afraid;


now, lean close,

my darling, that this

expellate jolt may find

a blotted sound's escape.

So kind, dear Martin. I'm puzzled by expression, at times. I would wish that the mode would stay constant in its form, yet, I cannot force it so.

Thank you, kindly.

Thanks so much, to all, for your response. I'm often outside of my comfort zone, here. Though, I've found that my reticence is rarely're all blessed to have created such a very welcoming atmosphere.

Still an air of mystery, but oh so close that you can touch the indefinable that is your privilege, and becomes transmuted into feelings and fascination. Beautifully simple.

A great confluence of lines elP

a lovely poem and i can only concur with what has been wrote, you retain the quality of words and the ethereal nature of your work but with this you have brought the interstellar satellite down to earth and found beauty in the every day instead of cold, metal galaxies.

This is different for you elP, I'm still trying to get a grip of it.

lovely elP - feels like you have stepped sideways out of your comfort zone a little with this one - maybe.
