Disparate Dreams

It's your breath
That gives shape
To the love lining
My falling tear drops

-------

Silence pours
Out of my palms
An offering of peace
To my distant goddess

------

You spoke and went
Leaving me there
To sift through the sands
For your vented words

------

Two full stops
And yet
My heart beats
The familiar rhythm

-------

Your mouth
Wraps around my words
Rolling them around
Like fresh green grapes

--------

I thought I felt
You yesterday
In a thought that
Kissed my lonely lips

-------

I woke up
And thought of you
Sitting in a chair
Covered by
My blanket of love

--------

It is evening
And I await
Your call-
My evening star

(15/12/2004)

-------

All the thrills of life
if distilled will not fill
my eyes with enough
tears to cry for a love
lost without you.

--------

Trace my eyebrows
With your rhymes
As they arch over
Your words left unsaid

(13/12/2004)

---------

My voice remained
Alone-
Inside your
Partitioned heart

-------

I look in the mirror
To find those dreams
You carved
On my concave cheeks

Manisha: As always thank you so much...you are a great source of encouragement. And I've to confess that your poetry is a great source of inspiration for me!

Hmm..I've to admit that I did not understand the latter half of your comment. Could you explain/clarify a bit? In the end coming to your questions...well they will have to remain unanswered....for now.

What should I say, consistently wonderful or wonderfully consistent?
