Parting rings a note of agony
on my heart each moment
I've to say good-bye
like a tree on a lonely path;
I feel deserted, abandoned

When thoughts of you coax
my mind, I feel elated
like a drop of honey on the tongue

If pains and scars are wiped out
what difference would grace
our pallid miasma -
a gladdening paradise
with love, harmony glowing...

I feel raw love for you
true , I share innermost
thoughts of affection for you
each time I recoil in monologue
of songs

O give me your authentic love
the cascading rhythm of joy
Give me your unmitigated affinity,
an intimacy moistured
like the early morning dew.

O my dark gazzle
bare your teeth in laughter
on my harmless face
to let me bathe in smile
of happiness

Your smile is tonic
to my heart
it emits hope

Your voice, timbre whisper
from the laughing waves

I take you for
what you are, honey
not what I hear
muted from the grapevine...

This opening stanza grabbed me:

"Parting rings a note of agony
on my heart each moment
I've to say good-bye..."

and wouldn't let me go until I was to the end. Then I started over again, because it was such a lyrical trip.

If this is an indication of the quality of your work, I do hope you decide to stay. Wonderful work here.

A wonderful celebration of the kind of love that doesn't simply fill up time but empowers lives with the substance of healing passion and the rich rewards of faith in one another.

You write so well and I hope that you will try the bronze membership for awhile and not give up. Here is a good place to start and I have had some good luck with it. I image if the others knew that you needed some help with your membership they would be glad to help you. I first started with BidPay for the three months and then went for the year. Later I will upgrade to gold when funds become available. But do think about the bronze membership and keep posting you do have a talent.
