Always on My Mind you baby...

Between the lines...

If you could read my mind
those thoughts that i wouldn't tell
my heaven dipped in your hell
this sacred taboo
I ink on your skin
shining like a forbidden tattoo
that merges from my within
dancing secretly
in your eyes
you are there
holding these letters
in a parade of glitters
or better
you are the weather
that swings me in all the seasons
at once
you land like a lazy feather
your logical madness upon all my reasons
these thoughts of you
I run to every time i close my eyes
haunt me like feverish lullabies
cradling my insomniac nights
to sleep
echoes of your whispers
sinking so deep
taking me to where you are
in a simple blink
why do you think?
why do i love you this much?
that what you can possibly know
when you see what the words don't show
If only you
could read my mind
pouring,between the lines.

“…these thoughts of you - I run to every time I close my eyes - haunt me like feverish lullabies - cradling my insomniac nights - to sleep…”

There is really nothing else to say, as this sums my life up :-) Sweet dreams!

Oh this is good!

Nevine said...

Abeer, this is beautiful. A testament of not only love... but dedication... and adoration. And it flows... like that ink on skin you describe. So very lovely. And so very you. I enjoyed... every word, ya amar! Bosa!!!

Lovely piece, with touches of sensuality running through it--nice examination, well-written.

Kay said...

if only, indeed... :)

Dulce said...

Why do i love you this much...
I guess because you have that gift as no other.
Those lines betweeen in your mind... difficult to read, but not so to understand!

Desert Rose:

You take the ordinary and put your personal spin on it and it is pure magic-- an extra ordinary experience of words teasing the senses.

Love the video on Neruda Pablo a good match -- for you as well have that way with words like he did.

lots of love to you sweet romantic one,

this is beautiful. I especially love

"you are the weather
that swings me in all the seasons
at once
you land like a lazy feather
your logical madness upon all my reasons"

and "feverish lullabies".

So much emotion in this. I'm so glad I got the chance to read it.

Beautiful poem. I wish we could all love with such passion.

I enjoyed the Neruda poetry as well.

some bliss is destined
to live surreptitiously
in our hearts alone

Desert Rose, your poetry never fails to soothe me, reminding me of the power and the crazy beauty of love.

Thinking of you and hoping all is well.

tuberider said...

I really enjoyed these lines:

"If only you
could read my mind
pouring,between the lines."

Very cool.

Desert Rose:

Miss you dear one, you haven't posted for awhile? It seems like this is happening to many of us, time passes, we are being called like the seasons -- thank you for the visit and comment always wonderful to hear from you.

I think I will do a lovely tribute to Cairo one day, we owe so much to that part of the world, it holds so much of our past our roots in antiquity.

warm wishes to you,
