Love - Poem by Sylvia Thomas

the simpliest form of emotion
that complicates your world.
you never forget that

I dream of all dreams
of a girl, like every girl
she cries with pain
because she's tortured
by that chain of desire
that swallows up her heart.

It carries the flow
of the soul that dances
of the tears that scream
and the silence that all understand.

It is unseen,
yet it can be felt.
it is a dream,
that soars to the infinite sky

It is reality
right in your face
It is the warmth
that protects you from hiding.

You smile and cry
Your tears can prove
that you're
in love.

    You have a very keen ability to analyze emotions, and be very specific about the effect of emotions on people. This is a lovely quality to have. Well done.

    A beautiful piece of Lit you've writ that dances around the inside of thine head with a magical note in close proximity of the heart strings played yet gently so tender and dear. God bless all poets-MJG. (Report)Reply
