Ballad of the Heart


You flew me to places unknown
never had I felt so high...
in another realm you will
always me my guy...

wrapped in the arms of
dreamy romanticism
making love, sensuous words
our hearts in poetic rhythm
were they the verses of fools

in the wanderings of my mind
poetic forms forever intertwined

lingering lips, a lyrical kiss
memories of you sing in my head
I awaken, alone,  it's you I miss
so many thoughts, I never said

You flew me to places unknown
never had I felt so high...
in another realm you will
always be my guy...

Lord, knows I couldn't sleep last night
our spiritual dialogue an unsung song
crying in darkness, waiting for daylight
longing for a tune, it's been too long

in the wanderings of my mind
poetic forms forever intertwined 

in silence, I pen nouns and verbs
trying to reconstruct a bit of magic
our story, more than a short blurb
fusion of the soul raw & dramatic

You flew me to places unknown
never had I felt so high...
in another realm you will
always be my guy...
always be my guy
always be my guy

this is for you my unsung song
ballad of the heart, before dawn

tell me in the morning's light gleam
were we more than a slumberous dream

author's note: Thank you for reading!
A restless night stirred the wanderings
of my mind.

  3. This is beautiful, my friend. Once one has flown, it is hard to be earth-bound. You will soar again. Here at the farm, there is a family of eagles, the young are learning to fly. Wow.

  4. There is nothing darker than a restless night... so many regrets and sorrow catch up with the sleepless person

  5. Sleepless nights do bring those restless thoughts. You captured the angst beautifully here.
    Hope you sleep tonight.

  7. "lingering lips, a lyrical kiss
    memories of you sing in my head"

    I read this over and over and over... imagining the shape of a lyrical kiss, the sound of memory dancing into an expecting head.

  10. I sense you feel very, very strongly about this person! And that there were some wonderful experiences that are now memories. I feel the romance in your words and also the sadness for what is no more. Sometimes the ballads of the heart are bitter sweet!

  15. This one hits home! I dreamt about my late husband last night, that he was alive after all and I was so happy to see him. But it was such a vivid dream that I still felt happy after waking.

  16. They say restless nights are caused by someone dreaming about you.

  17. While it's true that some things are better off forgotten, some things can never be forgotten... nor should they be.
