Love’s Melody – Love, Sex & Poetry (Daily Prompt Post – Cupid’s Arrow)

Happy Valentine’s Day – 2013

Love’s Melody – Love, Sex & Poetry
By: Linda A. Long
Tracing the edges
Of a heart
That lay
Between my breasts
And beat
A rhythm
In the melody
Of your name
One note
One beat
My heart sings
In waiting harmony
Of love’s promise
As if lifted
By the memory
Of your face
Through the distance
My heart plays
A bittersweet tune
Stinging of loss
My skin
Rests with the
Scent of roses
As it’s touched
By remembrance
Sadly mourning
Our missed opportunities
And grieving
The chances
We never took
My heart
Is still invested
Yet slowly
Trying to sing anew
And find
Its harmonic match
But still
Bleeds your name
The bridge to my heart
Still starts with you
Closing my eyes
To listen
As it sings its song
Sad yet sweet
It tells the tale
Of love and choices
In the sweetest pitch
Love overflows
The container of my heart
And flows
Like a perfect
Blend of voices
As one
Through my
Sad eyes
And seasoned by
The salt of my tears
A better time
When love wasn’t
So complicated
Love plays
Like a violin
On the strings
Softly tugging
At my heart
In the melody
Of your name
I love you
I will love you
I will never
Forget you
I will
Love You

About Linda Long Writes

I am an individual who believes in man's ability to overcome adversity and triumph. Life has taken me on many journeys. But, the most important trip I've taken is the one that leads right down into the bottom of my soul. That's where I live. I am an open person and willing share, encourage, and befriend all like-minded individuals. I live and practice the Law of Attraction. I practice Gratitude and Giving every day as a way to source my own personal and spiritual growth. I am Yogini and plan to pursue teacher training in the next year or so. As for my blog, my blog is written from the heart and is about my quest to the best I can be in this life. And, I also post my authentically written poetry on my blog. A couple of notes about my blog: 1. I post three to five times a week depending on inspiration and the flow of creative juices. 2. I ’m always looking for inspiration. Please feel free to send me a message with suggestions or suggested reading materials. 3. My blog is considered a “lifestyle” blog. It is based on self reflection and personal experiences. At times, my blogs can be a bit heavy, deep or overwhelming. But, at other times, they are just plan filled with the nonsense and garbage in my head. Either way, they are honest, genuine offerings coming from within my soul and, hopefully, touching yours.
