On the edges of perception
« on: December 07, 2011, 06:17:50 PM »
I can almost remember,
On the edges of perception,
What it was like to love
And be loved in return.
I can almost feel
The soft warmth of it:
Loveís innocent confidence.
When did I become so cold, so hard?
When did I stop seeing the beauty in things?
When did I stop dreaming those impossible dreams?
I miss being gentle.
I miss being soft and happy.
I miss being vulnerable.
I miss being able to trust myself.
I donít want to be this way forever.
I want to be that way again.

Athos,

Your words portray such a lovely sense of longing; I had to read them over again several times.  I do enjoy lingering over a good poem.  Thank you for sharing.

Bravo,

Ephe

Seconding what everyone else has said.  You have a real gift at poetry, Athos.
