  • Didn't I tell you, what I believe... Did somebody say that....that love like that won't last? Didn't I give you all that I got to, give baby?


From the tallest mountains,
The deepest seas, and the hottest sands blasts through my soul
I could travel far and wide and never find what I search for
What am I searching for?
What am I needing so badly, that I'd go through anything
Who is the person that would bring me through storm and fury?
Who is the woman who would have me endure the sting of the scorpion, the sting of a bullet, the pain of nearly dying in a state of mind

All that I could have her love...

How could she my world as I lay up in my bed each and every night?
Would she be that one that burn through soul, even as I enter the heart and soul of another at the most powerful level?
When did this... how and why this primal urge, this unnatural barrage of emotion
This rendition of love pulled from the ashes like a phoenix from its pyre.

All that I could enjoy her smile...

Drowing in her eyes, her name hanging upon my lips like the sweetest intoxicant, how I could not dream of her as I stand in the setting sun.
Why do I fear her taking her love from me?
Would I run from all that I ever built with my two hands, fly into the sun and stars
To love her, hold her, to press my lips to her greedily
To place myself within her soul and feel all that I need run through me as would her
To that end, that maddening passion, would I trek the genocidal carnage of a man's rent soul

Just for a chance to kiss those lips...

Like the rain drops in the desert, the tears of my soul barely contain the truest feeling I carry in my heart
If I could only reach out, to touch and hold close.
So close and so far away from me...

Would she only come so close to me...

That I could say that she wasn't my first love, but she indeed was my greatest love
Who could bring this proud man to his knees but she?
I know that if she were here now, would my words be so bold to admit, that I wish she could come and lie next to me tonight
that I could wake with her at the first light
And that my life could be finally at peace.

Or am I just doomed to walk this path?

Oh my dear, just come once. Don't deny me this thing. Let what was then be in the Sea of Forgetfulness, but hold on to me as I you, and come forward with all that you truly feel.

Baby, don't be mad at me. Just know that I am gonna love you forever

My dear, I love thie urgency in this poem, I do hope that your search draws to an apace... you will ifnd her, your words will draw her near like a starved bee of honey in sight. She will feel you before her eyes ever reveals your presence... Go in peace...

A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
