in the blankness of the white page------Writers Island



I move my rings on my fingers,
looking at I do not know what.
in the books I read, I try to find signs-
in my mailbox, what am I searching?

in the blankness of the white page,
I try to find words- your words,
which you never say, can never say;
it is as dificult for you as it is easy for me.

"in the complexity of it all, it is so simple-
breathing you in- is answer enough"

"breathing you in" - I know that feeling well when it comes to my soulmate. Saying "I love you" is simply not deep enough!

Beautiful!

Sometimes we search, aimlessly for what's right there, in front of us.

This was a fabulous poem, especially the last two lines.

We seem to always be looking for the answers in our relationships.
Well done!

The image of breathing someone in is marvellous.

Sometimes silence speaks volumes more than words ever could.

I can add nothing to the above. Once again another outstanding piece.

Pauline said...

nothing is more open (or more empty) than a blank white page...

I, too, like the intimacy of the beginning of this piece

Whitesnake said...

Very well done...
Such talent

Leonard Blumfeld said...

"which you never say, can never say;
it is as dificult for you as it is easy for me."

Is this really true? If it is, you're admirably in control of the relationship and yourself...
