Hold unto me

Hold me so tight else I slip through time Hold unto my gaze so fixed else u lost them among crowd of timeless time a time Hold unto my lovely tales else you hear them no more and long recite them in ashes scold of many empty nights..Hold close my warm cherished lips else they gum to another red smoothy rosewell from carpet brook of down gallery fantasy tips....Hold unto my elephant arms else they clinge unto hugs from states and bring back the fears you saw in bloom of nightmares. Hold unto my fingers when you can, else you see a golden flash or diamond splashes dazzling from rings of unbreakable proposal. Hold unto my chest whil e you have my grip moving a sluggish race of beam else you lose them to busy street upheavel and recite its comforts in dreams of past nightfall. Hold unto my love while you can for sooner it may grow wings and fly away.

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
