I stare at this
white as the
in winter’s staging
Where are the syllables
I crave to create a
mixture of magic?
I fear they have traveled
to faraway places,
across desert dunes
and boundless oceans,
and might not return
so that I may tell him
how he’s irreplaceable
I’ll just kiss him
and steady myself
in the arms of a man
who is satisfied
with my simple

Awww, this is so sweet, Lauren! Kisses and hugs are the best when you don’t know what to say 😉 Lovely, romantic poem! Xx Iris
Thanks so much, Iris, and yes, there’s nothing like a kiss and a hug for communication! 😉 Have a great week ahead! ♥
Oh this is so lovely Lauren. Sometimes the words we would love to say simply won’t arrive and aren’t actually necessary in the end. If we find those words then that’s a bonus! 😊❤️ xxx
Thanks, Chris, and that is exactly what I was conveying through my words. 🙂 ♥ xo
That’s very nice, Lauren.
Thanks so much, Binky! 🙂
The love of a kiss symbolizes the unspoken words well! I like this one very much, Lauren ❤
And there’s nothing like that one kiss! 🙂 Thanks, Christy, I’m glad you liked this! It took me “forever” to figure out a title, though. Hugs!
That’s beautiful Lauren.
Thanks so much, Ian, and thanks for your prior message, too. I got it and had deleted this last night for more editing. So sorry for the confusion, but I appreciate your patience to return again. 🙂
This is such a beautiful imagery of love, Lauren!
Aww, thank you, Naima! I really appreciate your lovely comment. Have a wonderful week! ♥
beautiful ” “Close your eyes and I’ll kiss you, Tomorrow I’ll miss you.”
Thanks, Mihrank, and I love that song! 🙂
Kisses never fail😊 Just beautiful Lauren!
No they don’t Madhu! 🙂 Thank you, my friend, and I hope you are well so far in this new year! ♥
Wonderfully touching Lauren!
Thanks so much, Don! On the flip-side to finding a balance is romance. 🙂
Beautiful and romantic Lauren.
Love while you can and love with all your heart
You never know when love decides they no longer want to be in your heart.
It hurts, I know.
Thanks so much, Ian, and you’re right. Some things like love should never be taken for granted. My hubby and I just celebrated 26 years of marriage and we’re still happy so I’m very grateful, believe me. I’m sorry you’ve experience hurt and I wish you much love in your future, my friend. From your beautiful poetry I know your heart is one of romance, too…wishing you also a wonderful weekend…
Well I guess there is nothing more you can do, when there is a lot you want to do except you find yourself limited by the things your body will allow you to do as opposed to what your mind wishes you could do. This then means that the perfect combination and fusion of the two is expressed through the glorious journey that a kiss takes you on.
Thank you for this beautiful post Lauren.
I think you said it well and what better way to express than with that special kiss! 🙂 Thanks so much, Tarisai! Have a wonderful rest of the week!
Sweet poem dear Laurel ! Just a kiss or a tender stare is more than enough to show our care,our true love … Great poetic work my lovely friend 🙂 ❤ xxx
Thanks again, Doda, not only for your lovely comment, but for catching up on many! 🙂 May your day be filled with many smiles, my friend…hugs! ♥ xo
