Air And Smoke


  • Lost Love

    Air And Smoke

    I won't find love in a happy place
    or find it in a strangers face
    they are too numerous
    and we are too few
    for me to find what I had with you
    and sometimes I wish
    in some secret way
    that the world might move on
    and let tomorrow be today
    is it my fault alone
    or will the ending be unknown
    a truth hidden from me
    where only blind men can see
    with fingertips and lingering lips
    each caress a brush stroke
    painting pictures with air and smoke
    you are my wooden cross
    and I am your Jesus figurine
    my most significant loss
    happiness beneath a guillotine
    however fleeting
    you have been worth the meeting...

    You have style and a way with word images..strong read! Paraphrasing words from an old movie... "'Treasure those moments, for moments make up your life."

    Wow, this is beautiful, "with fingertips and lingering lips/ each caress a brush stroke/ painting pictures with air and smoke" I loved those lines....the whole thing is just beautiful.

    absolutely gorgeous. this pain. this regret. the absences of your heart because you gave it willingly. never getting it back. never wanting it back. thank you

    My boyfriend never got over his first heartbreak. Reading stuff like this remind me of how sad he use to be...

    Poetry is what is lost in translation.

    Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
