I love poetry. Science is not my speciality though I'm sorry. Perhaps you should write one, I would love to read it.

About twenty years ago (21 in fact) I had a few short stories and poems published in an Arty magazine called 'The Fred '...one of the stories was serialized and ran over four issues....which is nice !!...unfortunately for me, they went bust !!...I think my poetry and stories killed their sales and alas since then, I've never tried to re-publish my stuff...it's shame. the story that was serialized was going to published in a large hard back book in it's own right !..we had all the illustrations done and everything......what a piss !!!....and that's what I have to say about that !

Men are the same as women.... just inside out !!

I love poetry, my favourite poet has to be W.B Yeats, especially Aedh wishes for the Cloths of Heaven. I have written a few pieces but I don't believe them to be very good. But I'll post one, as I'm new it's less embarrassing.

My Beacon

Have you ever wanted to own a piece of heaven?
Well for me I do, as I have you.
No longer with the need to see the beauty of the stars;
Because I can simply look into your eyes.
When I do, it's like travelling through time, getting lost.
But you always bring me back with your smile and heart
My beacon!
You are the lighthouse on my shore.
Ever guiding me back to you
Watching and making sure no harm comes back to me.

No sense dwells in this feeling so fragile
It is a madness tinged with a joy so real
I see your eyes and I am lost now within you
Securing my love together with yours

It's close to the edge and I sense the overwhelming
Struggling to keep my senses as fact
For inside you is a heart that has caught me
Holding me close , with you I'm intact

For you are the dew in the morning of my life
The light of the day and the darkness of night
This blanket of seasons has sold me to you
let the mist be the cloud of the first kiss


No sense dwells in this feeling so fragile
Our lives are a recipe that can't be ignored
Hold me, betroth me to the inside of you
Timeless does beckon as I say " I do "





I love poetry too. what do you think. I just made it .

My head is not what it used to be.

Than you Helena,

I just share peoples love for the written word here. And just imagined that I had a loved one to write it to.
I find that if I can just put myself in the emotion then the words flow.

Thank you

I love Mirages one too.

Ian

Ian that is amazing. I only really got into poetry while I was at college where on most days found myself sitting on a peaceful patch of grass and writing my thoughts down.

Thank you all for your kind words. I will indeed put it in the shared writing thread along with some others eventually.  Thank you again

My Heart has been captured and you hold the key, Your the keeper of my heart, My soul lives in thee!

A chain of love, surrounds you and I; So strong our emotions, we both sometimes cry....

Reaching out from so.. so.. far away, Grasping and longing to be closer each and every day!!

Entranced by the power of the sheer love and desire our hearts are joined tightly and bonded by fire!

Incredible hurdles we leap for one another, holding tightly to this love as is like no other!

Hearts in harmony and joined in bliss for there never will be a love more pure then this!

A treasured moment which has been stolen from time, a kiss of betrothal that lingers sublime!

A mutual joining of two spirits in love with a host of sweet angels singing of their love...

Alas forever their souls have combined living in the world their two hearts have divined!

Karen

Loveís Betrayal

By Loretta Gibson

Romantic love, the kind wherein partners become lost to each other, is a falling towards expression of lovers. Lovers choose a way, making a decision to find themselves together. A rare gift that goes beyond the boundaries of religion or materialism, romantic love inspires the psyche with profound motivations for life.

Lovers are no longer in solitude; their solitude rather is enriched by the mere presence of the other. Life becomes a journey shared, and the destination is but the fulfillment of love. Each moment is unveiled in glory, and mystery upon mystery of love is revealed. Lovers discover that the yearning they once possessed in silent is now answered through each otherís existence.

Romantic love is not an idealism professed, it is a transcendent tryst. Lovers shape, and become shaped in turn, by the act of devotion they share. Lovers see, and know, and feel the world to have somehow been changed. A sanctuary is created wherein their hearts may dwell.

As they change, lovers choose to change together, choose to re-make the world within the image of love they hold. As they change not together, then there is a falling away from love. Love is no longer the center of lifeís expression for them. And love has been betrayed.

Lovers chose to risk the hardness of heart sometimes experienced in the world and ventured for the potential of loving vulnerability. The betrayal of love becomes a process of grief, the sanctuary of lovers is thrown down in dismay, and the gates shut. The dull ache of betrayal to oneís inner being is the realization of being an individual in solitude once more.

Disillusionment with the possibility of love arises. The reflections upon the once shared world seem bitterly unrealistic. Now all that remains is for the individual to understand, and accept, that life does not fall apart, it merely falls into fresh patterns. This acceptance of life, however, is dependent as well upon the acknowledgement that love is the only realistic answer to an unrealistic world. And what can be learned is that love sometimes exists in contradictions.

Bereft

Thoughts are empty, as an echo in a valley.
All that remains of love's devotion is a blunted, knotted memory rooted in thoughts of him.

An ending now, possessing no beginning.
I no longer hear his name in the halls of my being, nor call out to his from the hollow places of my heart.
I am harnessed in my speech, withholding what means to be fervently spoken.
I cannot utter his name, therefore my love is nameless.

There is no longer that lover's lightning moment of embrace.
The truth of my Self hidden from him, there was no chance for redemption. He was blind to me. And I saw only what blinded me.
In ruthless honesty I dwell. The house of my soul now opens to wind and cloud cast day.

In ruins I exist.
No longer the bright cleanliness of love, only the dust of what might have been.

Here is an older piece from me before my heart turned....and I was enjoying the sunrise in Jamaica!


Romance is like a Diamond

But romance has different facets not measured in carats, cut, color, or clarity.  

One only needs time to discover each side of love in its uniqueness.    

Romance is just not found in people, but in your atmosphere!    
You may think How? Where is my ... atmosphere of Romance?

Is there fire, water, and air?

Fire to keep it burning within and all around.
Water to keep it going and flowing through.
Air to keep it alive, like oxygen is needed to breathe.

Atmosphere is wherever and whatever you make it.
It can be a bitter cold wind nipping your cheek don't mask it within like a robe
keeping out the wind.

An ocean mist kissing your cheek, as you reflect on long lost love somewhere
which has not yet found you while walking along a beach.

A fireplace with such intensity it as if you are dancing among the flames
and are carefree with abandonment of your heart!

I have learned to expand my knowledge in this area...without a man to
learn to listen to the wind as it had wooed me when I was in
Jamaica while watching the sunrise on the beach before me showing off
her pretty arms of rays!  Gently caressing my cheek softly with her warmth
and her gentleness.

Losing oneself into the edges of romance drifting in and out as a long
winter's sleep.  I wake up and find romance is just sitting there.

beyond that farthest shore

you are that dreaming flower blossoming unto the vast sky
inherent simplicity of being surrounds you
and clothes you in diaphanous robes of joy

you are that flowing grace of the oceanís movement
wherein all existence of love permeates life
and my religion becomes a worship of that essence aflame you bear

you are that song of the far reaching road that leads me homewards
i have been long astray without your nourishing melody
and such child-like grace as you possess to lend refreshing beauty
to me

Oh Wow ! Loretta, profound, discerning , heartfelt and deep.

Thank You.

I love this " you are that flowing grace of the oceanís movement " in fact I would say that ' beyond that farthest shore ' is my favourite.
