Truly We'Ve Met Before - Poem by Cat Tiger

Your whisper pounds my heart's rood
Rushing throbbed tsunamis throughout
So that the pulsing of my tepid blood
Expands even whisper into a shout.

Truly, our spirits have met before
Settling by parts in others we've known
Or rising from forests and familiar lore
To caress as a breeze softly blown.

Now as your fragments coalesce,
With each salient, cognizant burst,
A universe builds and draws me close
Till this body pounds with burning thirst.

    What is the theme, Terry? I wonder if you know. I'm not sure I do.

    Interesting that readers like mixing metaphors with a romantic-sentimental appeal. (Report) Reply

    maybe a trip too many to the Thesaurus (Report) Reply

    Sorry, Susan, I didn't go to the Thesaurus at all on this poem. Like most of my poems these words introduced themselves to me. I hardly knew them. And that's what worries me most about this effort. Anything else?

    The melody in this poem is amusing. The very first line itself soothes the mind and the love touches its zenith when you say we have met before and finally the mark left by beloved is the fragrance....Good write. Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply

    Loved reading this poem repeatedly and enjoyed its music and mysticism that is ingrained from beginning to the end. Thanks, Dear Poet (Cat Tiger is too far-fetched) . (Report) Reply
