oh,  doubt not my love!

no breath can i  take
without the scent of  you
intoxicating me

no sight can i  see
that i  do not wish
to share with you

no food can i  taste
near so sweet
as your kisses

no touch can i  feel
that makes me tremble
the way your fingertips do

no words can i  hear
more precious
than your pledge of  love

my love for you grows
with each beat of  my heart
my heart
which now belongs to you,  my Love

is love alive?

in spring
when newborn tendrils struggle
to find their way through cold earth

in summer
when the sun’s lips brush across open blossoms
hot,  like a lover’s kiss

in autumn
when leaves become weary and fall
onto the ground so hard

in winter
when all becomes quiet
within the snow’s embrace

our love
defies the seasons
ever-growing
ever-lasting

alive

·›• it’s my birthday! { almost } •‹·

• ◊ •

you have probably noticed that  i’ve been re-posting a lot of  my earlier poems and prose.  February 12th will be my heart’s love songs 5th birthday!  i never in a million years could have imagined having a blog for this long ~ or having a blog at all,  for that matter.  i wrote my first poem  (a haiku ~ sorry Fireblossom)  in January 2010 on Twitter.  the only reason i  started a blog was to have some place to write poetry because i  figured my twitter friends must be getting sick of  it by then.  amazingly,  other people came to visit.

i  don’t write new poetry or prose very often anymore.  { i’m sure my muse is out getting drunk or high or both! }  in a nostalgic mood,  i  looked up the most viewed posts throughout the five years.  i  realized that they,  and some of  my personal favorites,  had not been seen in two or three or even five years.  so i  am reposting them throughout January and February and probably into March as well ( hopefully along with occasional new poems.)

the last time i  did the  featured poets series  was in 2012  (with some re-posted in 2013)  so i  will be re-running the series in March and April.  partially for the blog’s birthday,  and also to celebrate  National Poetry Month in  April since that was what originally inspired the series in 2011.  i was truly honored to have 60 amazing poets agree to participate.  i  am going to re-post without updates,  so if  anyone featured would like to make changes to his or her bio,  please just let me know when it appears.  if  you haven’t seen the series,  you’re in for a real treat as there are fabulous poets to meet and stunning  poetry to read.  (again,  i will also be posting any new writing of  my own.)

i  hope you enjoy this trip through the archives of  my heart’s love songs  as much as i  have enjoyed the blog all these years.

thank  you  SO  much for visiting!

i  glorified you
thought it was love
maybe so…
maybe so…

you basked in my devotion
pretended to love me
addicted to the adoration
and the power it gave you

i  worshiped you
until the day
you laughed at my love
thinking it wouldn’t matter

in that moment
i  lost my religion
knew you were no good
…..no god

i  revered  you
learned it wasn’t really love
even so…
even so…

“Losing My Religion”   Anouk

lyrics {or an approximation} ~

Oh life, it’s bigger
It’s bigger than you
And you are not me
The lengths that I will go to
The distance in your eyes
Oh no, I’ve said too much
I’ve said enough

That’s me in the corner
That’s me in the spotlight
Losing my religion
Trying to keep an eye on you
And I don’t know if I can do it
Oh no, I’ve said too much
I’ve said enough

I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try

Every whisper
Of every waking hour
I’m choosing my confessions
Trying to keep an eye on you
Like a hurt, lost and blinded fool, fool
Oh no, I’ve said too much
I haven’t said enough

Well, consider this
Consider this the end of the century
Consider this, as well
It brought me to my knees,  Hell
What if all these fantasies
Come flailing around
Now I’ve said too much

I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try

But that was just a dream
That was just a dream

That’s me in the corner
That’s me in the spotlight
Losing my religion
Trying to keep an eye on you
And I don’t know if I can do it
Oh no, I’ve said too much
I haven’t said enough

I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try

But that was just a dream
Try, try, try
That was just a dream
Just a dream
Just a dream, dream….
