If I Find Her Not

If I find her not in my search, then indeed,
Does the face of time stand as my arch enemy through all eternity
If my Indian Princess stands not near my side
For we sit baptized daily and bathed pure, in our words amany
Whilst our lingering worlds drift beyond us unnoticed in traced time

Our worlds colliding in time, drawing us closer
With each breath we take interlaced as one
The world in our very midst doth dissolve into time,
And so doth vanquish itself with our very embrace and touch
We swim in soul upon one another's breath united as one

The world at large shall curtsy and bow,
As we pass sway all abright and aglow in the way
My painted vision of you strewn upon parchment
Shall grab soul to hand to heart
No man shall look away the same

You biting at my heart as you do
Indian Princess standing in tears
You feed upon the very breath of my soul
Pressing me to spill in heaped breath of soul, utterly undone
Indian Princess standing tall and bold

We lay now, in the polestar of swaddled love pure in pose....

We swim in soul upon one another's breath united as one

Oh Rodney, I cried! This one phrase just tore at me:' You biting at my heart as you do
Indian Princess standing in tears" This os so poignant and filled with longing.

if i could i would write for you here how this touches the soul. i can't. i was just discussing today with someone about writing technique. the simple versus the ornate, the honest versus the veiled. you sir have it all
and lucky are the halls of the den that you make your home here that we may share the wealth of your great talent.
may you find your indian princess and may she indeed be worthy

Great lines.

"Shall grab soul to hand to heart
No man shall look away the same"

It is within each of us to be moved by the genuine and gentle love we observe, as well as the love we feel ourselves.. If we strip away the reservations, the fears, the practicality in life, we have what you've written here.. unconditional, breathtaking love. God, but you're a lovely romantic, Rodney. (smile). Pain, be gone! katy.

I feel a calm sense of release with this one. Not a giving up ... but an understanding and acceptance.

Reviewed by Tinka Boukes 5/27/2003
We are two shores apart
The river of love joins us together
And we are facing each other
Admiring each other from afar
The soft contours of our bodies
The luscious sweet slopes of fantasy
Now our own moment of ecstasy
Since the last angry flood
Went away and left us alone
Alone in our own comfort to heal
Now jealously came lurking
Watching our hungry hearts
As the river of love
Dividing our feelings
Kisses each other in its turn
We look at each other
Inseparable in love
But in opposite worlds
Still secretly crumbling
Two people’
Hearts


Love Tinka
