Always on My Mind you baby...

Dreams have another sound
that i know by heart
ticking to my soul
every night
rising to my fall
Holding on tight
As I call them,
The One and the All
He is.
The one who is nameless
Identified with my confusion
like the touch of time
within me,
He is the Time .

Is the one who is only few letters
of a love word
haphazardly visited with those,
shutting the doors of fantasies,
Opening the roads of ecstasies,
Inviting the tears to roll
on lines of euphoric submission
and the "Hows"
that are Exotically unanswered
craving in His moaning silence

He is more then
a "No!", a "Never will be.",
A Happening He is in me
a "would it ever?" or a "when?"..
a stammer
between tears and laughter
He is not more then few numbers,
Those of the lottery ticket
I am playing with my fate.

This one has to be read over and over and with every read meanings and feelings sink in. Amazing piece! Love it :-)

Claudia said...

..He is more then

"....Those of the lottery ticket
I am playing with my fate..." I know this journey well :-) A very nice one-shot.

Your poem is very interesting in terms of the conventions of English grammar——deep, inventive. Invokes sympathy for the speaker under the currents of pointed meanings. Starts with an amazing first line too. Unfortunately, odds of winning the lottery are obviously not good, though that doesn't stop most players from dreaming their prosperous dreams. Can definitely, sadly, relate to that in my own way. Cheers, Abeer.

Read this twice--full of nuance and very sensual. Playing the game of love, and everyone's a gambler in that one. Nice write.

Mesmerizing poem. I love all the deeper meanings.

joanny said...

There are so many ways -- big and small - to express ones love for another - here words of love are beautifully written through the heart and soul of a poet-

Sweetly expressed in your own lovely style.

This is a lovely, lovely poem, Rose.

It has a simple resonance which is very deep.

Beautiful. And hopeful.

I love dreams, as they stir up emotions, which often remind us to apply some much-needed conscious attention to some areas of our life. Without dreams, nothing is possible; without dreams, there is no future. Dreams are the power, which drives invention, which drives our imagination and more importantly our love. Without a ticket, no dream of winning is possible. Like your poem, dreams give us hope!

This has many layers to it. I think I could read this many times and get a new meaning with each read. Great work!

There is something both spiritual and romantic in this. I love that you leave the interpretation to the reader.

Oh My dear Abeer,
You leave me in awe with that way of yours with words, love whys and nos and don't ... but maybe fate has it for you

Monkey Man said...

By living and breathing, we are all playing with fate. Fate created my One Shot.

Steve Isaak said...

Beautifully stated, sublime at certain points, and certainly romantic. Masterful line breaks, masterful flow.
