amor terrenal

amor terrenal



soft whispers of earthliness
dirt smeared across your cheek
your love of the life
a delicate dream on which the world rests

sweet words of wisdom

sun streaks in your hair
your help a saving grace
a desire has grown in my heart

unlike anything I have ever known

your peaceful delight is like a sunrise to my nightmares
I dream of you as waking life

sound notions rooted in love

your jeans old and faded
the world sings at your footfall
and I am a flower that longs to be studied by you

Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.

T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
