Memorized In Spaces - August 24, 2010


Memorized In Spaces

Your memorized replies haunt all of these hallowed spaces
Winding profusely around the precious truth
Dispersing beads of splendor into the sweetest memories
That I will always have and hold of you

The ink will never ever fade, or vanish from these pages
Which hold the words, deeply written in my soul
Engraved in these hallowed spaces of the precious truth
Completing, the other half of the whole

Glowing gifts of revelations sweetly haunt my memories
With the spirit of the Muse you put in place
As I respond to your replies in the crystal ink of my tears
With a smile of blissful joy upon my face

No matter where I roam or where this life may take me
These engravings are etched into my heart
Memorized in spaces, of the tracks of my tears of joy
Never from my spirit to depart

A love poem with a sense of loss. I read this a few times. At first I thought he was a liar, but I came to think he was just removed--went away, off to serve, or died leaving only memories of the passion and the love. Beautiful words, deeply felt. Thank you.

So many things went through my mind reading this and it has a soft quality that lingers. The "memorized" replies is intriguing.

"The ink will never ever fade, or vanish from these pages which hold the words, deeply written in my soul." Simply beautiful! I love it! :-)

So beautiful! The ink will never ever fade, or vanish from these pages
Which hold the words, deeply written in my soul
Engraved in these hallowed spaces - my favorite lines.

"Glowing gifts of revelations sweetly haunt my memories / With the spirit of the Muse you put in place / As I respond to your replies in the crystal ink of my tears"

Beautiful poem, that part particularly, hits home.

Some memories, one just CANNOT forget!
I loved how you used a few words from one stanza in another place in the subsequent stanza... it was very cleverly done!
With words such as yours in this poem, it's impossible to forget it!!

Lovely work...
