to live

look, how blue

your flames are
curling up
between my fingers

you do not know, love
my hands are closing
to hide

my light, as you flicker
will you burn away
the gray trails
in my eyes

the
splinters
in my heart

love,
with your blanket of gold
will you catch me
as I fall

casting death
like a paper ball

into your fire
to live

WOW!

my bird, i enjoyed this absolutely...really..you are so poetic above love...

i could never write a real love poem...life, my life, is a vain one dear, whatever I try to do...

I am not sad about it, though...the vainness helps me engage myself fully in whatever I do...anyway, those are matters of Providence..no comments there...

but, why is it that i tend to talk too much with you..

you offered a life to me, more than once if I say...:-)

love,
devika

"My life is a vain one", strange words coming from one so capable, Devika, or is it just that you are modest, not vain...!

This is so vivid, full of beauty, pain and passion, you are quite extraordinary...I click everyday to see if you have something new...and then I think, everything old is new to me...so I'll go backwards lol :)
