Of Longing


Somewhere,
Across this great expanse
You are.
I feel you,
The way I have always felt you,
From the core of my being.
Though we have never met
On this side of the veil
Your essence
Is imprinted upon my soul.
And I ache
For the time we’ll be together
Beyond my dreams
Once more.

Oooooo Felicitas ~ I LOVE this today. The photograph is just so intriguing too. Such beauty being able to combine the two with such poetic words. Mesmerizing!

My 55 is up (though it's a "66" today ~ I granted myself an exception):

I read this in a deeply spiritual way. It is beautiful. Mine is up as well, but it isn't spiritual at all.

Emotional and spiritual, both at once.
Lovely.

"Though we have never met on this side of the veil..."

Such longing, such agony. So well done.

your stuff always make me think what a beautiful writer you are. Great 55 as always.

Felicitas said...

Thank you, Karis! I thought the image was cool, too. It's from Deviantart which has alot of beautuful artwork for download and sale. But the photographs you post - which I know you take yourself - are ALWAYS really lovely as well.

Hi Sheri, thank you and welcome. This piece definitely came from my heart.

Chris, you're right - this is also a very spiritual piece.

MM, I can feel you too - thanks for the hug!

Happy Mother's Day to you too Shakira - and all the other great moms here! Hope your kids spoil you this weekend!

Alice Audrey said...

Intriguing image and enchanting words...definitely enjoyed this piece.

Fireblossom said...

Felicitas, you are one of the reasons I love the Poetry Pantry. This poem is nothing but gorgeous. It is at once hopeful and killingly melancholy. I have felt just this way so often. Thank you for putting this feeling into words.

How beautiful!

Mary said...

Believe it or not, Sherry Blue Sky used two words that I WAS going to use. "Beautiful" and "mysterious." Great minds think alike, I guess. Kind of reminds me of Enya songs.

Diane T said...

This poem is one of mystery and yearning. Beautiful!

Jingle said...

old piece,
thus I believe that you are well now.
beautiful sentiments.
well penned.
