Only In My Heart - Poem by Emma Kessler

You seem to be here
Hiding in my shadow
Often you feel so real
That I feel your breath
But you only exist in my mind,
my heart and my dreams
Sometimes you seem so real
That I believe you are alive
So you have become
A strong advisor
A close friend
A true love

    Wonderful poem - what you feel within the expression of these words reflect a reality on both levels! (Report) Reply

    Nobody feels that pain..then why you, me and people like us are still stuck with that? But your words are really amazing and hurtful. (Report) Reply

    Hi Emma - I love this - it is elegant - just like you. On PH we share cerebrally and we exist in each others minds. This cerebral relationship is wonderful because it transcends space - time - age - culture and allows a very objective appraisal of each others poems. To each other we are Strong Advisors (although our critique is gentle) . and we become - through verbal interaction Close Friends. Your poem explores a more transient and ephemeral 'supporter' an Angel perhaps. There is an analogy with our relationship (you and I) after one gentle exchange. There is another level which involves the Heart and our Dreams and by mutual exchange and understanding we become a True Love which is awesome. Because we are both in the PH Family I have chosen to interpret your lovely evocative poem in a PH context. Thank you - Excellent. Love You in Poetry - JOHN X (Report) Reply
