Icarus of Love

28 Aug


Like Icarus Who Flew

Too Close To The Sun

Destined To Burn Eternal

So As My Love

I Flew To Close

To Your Heart

Destined To Burn

In The Eternal Hells

Of Unfulfilled Love

I Came Too Close

And Burnt My Lips

On Your Tender Words

I Fell Into The Fiery Orb

Of Your Bewitching Smile

I Saw Beyond The Stars

And All The Shining Suns

Into Your Heart I Fell

And So Eternally

To Dwell

Release Me From This Demon

This Hell Of Aching Love

And Hold Me Once Again

Within Your Arms Of Love

Quench The Fires Raging

Within My Loins

And Let Me Taste

The Nectar’s

Of Our Secret Moments

Of Love

Embrace Me My Darling

As Once So Long Ago

Times Have No Meaning

Time Is Gone

Yet In Eternal Love

Time Lingers

Forever On

Bathe With Me Again

In The Waters

We Once Shared

When We Floated In Dreams

In The Golden Waters

On Our Bed Of Love

I Make That Bed Again

My Darling

A Bed Of A Thousand

Rose Petals

Of Roses Yet Unknown

Lay Your Love

Beside Me

And Whisper

Those Sacred Words

To Once Again Hear

Your Words So True

Yes My Darling

I Do Love You

    Heartfelt words, Ian, and words that touch and tug at the heart. How are you? I’ve been off and on in blogland, but I’m trying to post and read a little now and then. Have a wonderful Sunday.

        Life sometimes gets in the way of blogging, Ian, and I’m taking another class, which is even more demanding than the last one. But I’ll do my best to spend some time here, which I love…have a wonderful day 🙂

    Ian, and extraordinary poem indeed. I felt your words as if they were mine as I experienced this kind of love in this “century”. Fortunately I don’t hurt anymore over it. But it took a long time to recover from such a deep love.

        Thank Ian. That love affair was over 12 years ago and I smile and laugh a lot now. It’s no longer on my radar which is good. These kinds of love are so painful when they end.

          Life does go on Peppermint Gil as you know, great to know you have adapted to it’s changes as I have had to do twice in my lifetime, the waiting was well worth the effort and anguish.

    Your words seems to cut so deep, is there someone in particular you’re thinking about?

      You may not believe it gp, but my words are really written from over a century ago, damned if I can explain it, but my words seem to come from past times as soon as I start writing. Long before we met on Word Press gp, I used to write all my poems in pen before posting, I have a box full of all my poems handwritten, think some people call it automatic writing, for me it’s just emotional writings, such is life old mate, memories of the mind or heartstrings from the past.

        I understand. (and I still do a lot of my posts long hand first – just don’t trust my memory any longer.)

          Gave the long hand away gp when I figured out that the computer can do everything for me apart from wiping my arse.

            I have a habit of crossing out and rearranging paragraphs – it’s quicker for me to draw a line, put in editors marks or simply draw a line through – I’m a slow typist (bad left hand), so that’s faster for me than copy/cut/paste on the computer.
