“This Side of Innocence"

You stand firm on this side of innocence
so that this world can somehow know
in that you are far from reproach or ill
in what that truth will eventually show
that the heart wants what the heart wants
and the yearning shall linger insatiate
until it concedes what remains in dark
wandering on the other side of passion

I cannot help but wonder each night
what the world would think about us
if we step undaunted into each other
taking that path of least resistance
stretching out to one another in life
to reach in our wildest imagination
so that we may benefit from passion
and garner that romance embodied

that we may reap the fruits of our labors
like immigrants stooping in the fields
tasting the forbidden fruit on the vine
tasting the harvest at our masters table
then breaking the rules of engagement
bypassing these rigid rituals of lovers
faint whispers behind closed curtains
that do not escape into the frigid night

what say you we should hold hands?
entwined in this inexhaustible venture
unfazed by the tolls of another winter
lost in a mumble of regret and turmoil
dreaded fear that haunts guilt or shame
so that we may face one another again
to embrace while we savor the warmth
provided and found only in our hearts

while pressed firmly against each other
with hunger delineated only by bodies
lingering forever in an extravagant kiss
holding on in an eternity to one another
an inordinate pleasure in our expression
that lies waiting in the fringe of dreams
and then recycle the warmth conserved
when one word lies tethered to another

therein let us bathe in each others words
where two souls have labored in the mire
to arrive at the same intersection of love
and extrapolate in the meaning of desires
that have lingered in the fringes of need
to express through the distance the pain
of holding what is dear in dysfunction
yet bridled within the burdens we share

I say what you feel as you feel what I say
and repeat through the fog of tomorrow
what one another has to fathom in verb
and replay in the soul, mind and heart
what has always been there long since
and somehow we both know continues
that shall not be denied by dark riddles
but arises as the truth conquers our fate

in this side of innocence long forgotten
where we fraction emotions to a whole
it is here where we are always reminded
of that pain that love becomes immune
and inspiration conspires in the sunrise
to gather dew of what was left behind
of our own footsteps off in the distance
that return from where they had begun

Exquisite realisations, Amor..your thoughts and words tske us on a visual path toward truth...lovely!

Hello from long lost Taylor and it is a pleasure to pass your way even if only briefly. Amor, your latest bio fortells your poetry...and Don Henley said it far better than I can in complimentary expression. In love, if it is true, "you reap what you allow". I dream the same dream and walk the same walk happily.

A beautifully personal execution of personal spirit,
xo Taylor

"I say what you feel as you feel what I say
and repeat through the fog of tomorrow..."

is perhaps my favorite.

I find the poem very thought-provoking and almost hypnotic.
Romantic, yet also down to earth.

Thank you for sharing it, Amor.

Bless you!

so much much follow those footsteps is to grasp but a moment of weave us with you through your poetic escape and capture us at the ending much more.

exceptional work my friend...
Reviewed by Kate Burnside 1/16/2011
As Belle says, the migrant worker imagery does it for me, too: an alien living a life ploughing and working fields which are intrinsically foreign to the heart and soul; wrong place, wrong time, wrong life... the only peg in the ground is right love! Or so it seems. We can spend our whole lives with one foot nailed or shackled in that foreign field, circling the core of what we believe would free us and make us whole. Self-imposed bars we make our innocence, too, sometimes. A mature and tender treatise on the nature of deep soul connection and affection that withstands both time and circumstance until all the pieces come into line. Your work always comes from a very deep place, Amor, and you give yourself to it thoroughly, majestically and whole-heartedly. In appreciation always, xx
Reviewed by Janet Caldwell 1/16/2011
Wow, makes me think that the love that is clearly in the distance, yet right at hand is the one that you or I hope for. Sometimes you just have to go with it, expect to pay a price, write the (emotional) check and go for it. Love it! Stay well my friend. x

This poem is tantalizing!

through your words
this beautiful expression evolves
this wonderful & yet pausing emotion
a journey to self discovery lives
and embraces us all through our
own paths and choices
and knowing in some choices
there is pain...and yet renewals too

I know there are many footsteps
I would gladly gather again with wisdom
and then also some that I would never ever
travel upon with that gained wisdom
which we all do gain wisdom in every step

May Love's Bounty Always Embrace You

Somehow, Amor, your words resonate within the depths of my soul. It is almost as if you are speaking so clearly to me on a supreme level, I am sure every woman that reads this, can identify to what I am saying. We all have lost loves, misguided decisions, rendering us helpless to our inner most deep desires that we all try to hide from view. Some people can express themselves so divinely as you have done in this masterful poem, and some of us just dream of what we desire of our lives and loves.

Simply lovely and stirring poetry as always,

Peace, love and light,

Reviewed by Sage Sweetwater 1/12/2011
This takes us on a journey through time,'s evident the more we leave behind of love, the more we seek to revive it to the whole emotion it once stood for. We can have love in this form you speak of, but I think, we must break away from those we no longer feel passion for to embrace those in which we are soul mated to, regardless of distance or of breaking another heart. We've got to heal the heart of its false hope to revive any real true love. In other words, we've got to let go of all that isn't to embrace all that well.
