Heaven or dust

by Free verse   Oct 10, 2017

It took me
more than a year to speak
three little words.

You smiled
without even uttering a word,
and I knew that you had
given me a chance to ring
those bells of love
hidden somewhere
in your heart.

And it took you
less than 3 seconds to fill
all of those dreams
(I had in my eyes)
with color of blood

I don't remember,
when did I die?
Once the streets of my soul
were infected with your love
my mind became a labyrinth
while solving a case of you.

I thought of you as the Moon:
A place that I could call my home,
but you were merely
a piece of rock.

And when
I didn't get the chance
to live in heaven with you,
I took the dust;

I made earth my delight,
and once you start spinning
upon the green everyone looks like a
stranger to you.

Even me; Even you.

    Shane, this is a beautiful write... I love the beautiful tone of your writes, it's very unique as Frank puts it. This speaks to the heart...it is passionate and full of yearning with a tinge of sadness over love that is lost. I feel bad that I do not have a nomination left...as this would do well in the front page. I hope someone does nominate.

    Dear Lu. all your verses are statement on their own. They are utterly unique -not imitating other's works.- But what is most striking about your works is the metaphors. You mix element together, so unusually and amazingly make them work. This by itself alone is the sign of a very creative and unique mind.
