After We Talked

After we talked
And you chose
We cannot be together
I went from certain heaven
To possible hell
I wandered about
I met a genuine damsel
Girl with ebon hair
And purple shining
Eyes gleaming darkly
Black pearls
Beyond beauty
Looking at her
I could barely breathe
Her everlasting entity
Grabbed me by the soul
Beautiful black hole
Endless depth
Bottomless ecstacy
Thinking of you
I wondered
About certain heaven
And possible hell
How close I walk to the edge
I was sad for you
Not for me
I am beyond sadness
Because I love
And hurt like hell

Tremendously powerful and beautiful poem Regis. I can feel the emotion in every word, every line. Walking on the edge. I know this well. I wrote a poem called "Sleeping Tide" which touches on some of these themes, like life on the edge. We keep doing this Regis. Must be something in the poetic heart.

The pain of lost love can be healed with the touch of new love...

wandered about
I met a genuine damsel
Girl with ebon hair
And purple shining
Eyes gleaming darkly
Black pearls
Beyond beauty
Looking at her
I could barely breathe
Her everlasting entity

Maybe even in love, when one door closes another one opens. We just need to be ready to walk through it when it does...

Well done as always...

Boy of all the AD poets I've read you really capture the "perils" of love, its expectations, its unrequited possibilities, its bottomless joys and soaring griefs. Your style is so suited to it... Hey, read your new bio, who's the "new" lovely lady on your arm? Wonderful! And where can I find out more about "Autumn Leaves" (?) is it a book, ezine or journal?

Your Words of Emotions Are Inspiring Regis
those temptations we crave of love’s touch
oh….the invigorating sweet erotic quest
steadfast we dance like sensual passions
gleaming upon the concurs of euphoric unity
yet charted only by the goddess of decisions…
From the gracile flights of our desires yearning
we fall from the sky when our wings are removed
the descent is indeed a torrent pain
regressing within our hearts….
Much Love & Inspirations Regis
