Chasing Paper Rainbows

by Lu   Oct 17, 2009


You carved our names in paper -

And ...
all stood still
for that one brief moment
when your tongue -
caught fire
and burnt my soul.

"Time heals all wounds"
they say.
- When shall that time come -
Tomorrow ?
(The tomorrow that never comes)

It's much too painful
chasing paper rainbows,
while drowning.
And the sun never seems to fit,
in my pocket.

On and on ...
My thoughts continue to bleed.

So here's to us!
A tarnished goblet
to quench the thirst
of darkness.
- a toast -
To the man,
I hate, to love.

    I hate to compare you to another poet, but Melpomene's & your styles are so similar and equally amazing. I get addicted to your poetry & hers so easily. Anyways, another really awesome write. The "To the man, I hate, to love." was the perfect ending & was extremely powerful. Another awesome write from you, filled with emotion --wonderfully done.

    Love na hate lie so close together, Luanne....and when we love a man deeply, it can turn to bitter hate at times when he lets us down...

    You are such a beautiful human being...you deserve to be treated well.

    God bless:)

    5/5 Ingrid
