the poem that you wrote

the poem that you wrote

last night I found
the poem that you wrote
sleeping on my pillow
between a lullaby and a dream
scribbled on yellowed music sheets
with ink from my unopened fantasies
your lyrics sang of passion
a garden of eternity and jasmines
rhymes of me and you watching
our lonely silhouettes
making love beneath the moon

  1. How romantic is this, Drew. You melted my heart . Moon, jasmine, love and a poem written in the past. This piece is filled with beauty. But then you are a master, arenโ€™t you?
    Gorgeous. May the moon and your love be with you tonight.

    1. So sorry you are going through a difficult period. Life is so challenging. It can really get us down.
      I hope things get better for you. I will always keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

      Thank you for your beautiful comment. I appreciate your kind words.

      1. That’s so kind of you. I gratefully take care of my grandma, she turns 90 on Saturday, she got an infection, the medicine they gave her she had a reaction to. It just pains me to see her in pain and confused. As I have to repeatedly remind her of what is going on.
        Your words are wonderful and encouraging! ๐Ÿ˜Š

        1. So sad to hear this about your grandmother. At the age they are gentle and fragile. I know it is not easy for
          you to care for her. There are so many challenges, but I have no doubt your heart overcomes each and every one
          of them. I wish her all the very best. I bet she is a treasure. Obviously, she means so much to you.
          Bless her. I wish her a speedy recovery from the infection and may the rest of her days be healthy and happy.

          Thank you for the compliment. It is greatly appreciated.

  2. If you were trying to add to my favourites list, you succeeded. There feels like such an element of fate and inevitability of these lovers… her dreams and her poem on your pillow, and, best of all
    โ€œscribbled on yellowed music sheetsโ€จwith ink from my unopened fantasiesโ€

    That.. knowing, the match… your ink, her words, the perfect harmony written in some blend of music and words. โ€œBetween a lullaby and a dream.โ€ Seriously.

    So many levels of right here Drew. I was already melting and then you added jasmine and the moon.

    Wow.

    1. You are so sweet Rachel.
      I kind of had the feeling of an inevitability of these lovers. Him adoring her writing.
      Him longing to be with her.

      It’s funny, the poem didn’t start out that way. Originally, it ended very different.
      Somethine like “i tucked the poem in the crevices of my heart, to inspiore every beat.”
      But I tweaked it three or four dozen times over the last two or three two days.
      I appreciated this ending better.

      You are much too kind Rachel. YOu beautiful appreciation makes me blush with happiness.
      I am trying so hard to write differently. Sometimes I feel so predictable.
      So this poem and your reaction, made me so happy.

      Thank you so much. I am touched. xoxoxo

        You have something very unique and very special in the way you write. I donโ€™t think having a theme means itโ€™s predictable. The only predictable thing for me about your writing is that I will love it.

        I do know what you mean though, I feel the same about my writing sometimes. Weโ€™re usually our own harshest critics.

        Have a wonderful day dear friend xoxox

          Your are so sweet. Believe me I have had complaints about all you write is about love.
          I usually reply, what else is there?

          Thank you so much. Have a wonderful evening. I hope you are feeling at home, though I am afraid that takes a while.

          1. Good reply… what else is there? What else is more important? Having said that, Iโ€™m sure youโ€™d do a great job no matter what you write about. Your poetry is beautiful.

            It is my morning, I am on my way to work. I have not shifted continents, just house, so itโ€™s not too major. Plus, itโ€™s Friday and the sun is shining, so Iโ€™m happy enough (just need another coffee).

            And, broken is beautiful, just saying ๐Ÿ˜‰.

    Where do I start….? I’ll answer that…somewhere between a lullaby and a dream
    That line was unbelievable.
    How dare you write a gorgeous, sensual, dreamy, loved up , gently hawt and heart pounding poem, dripping with music and pillow talk and moonlight talk and expect me to behave? How????
    Sigh
    I’ll do my best. For you
    I adored the opening line; discovering her poem sleeping on his pillow..personification and a heart felt metaphor of pure love. As though …her poetry sleeps beside him between dreams, reality and music waiting to be spoken aloud. Or even, as though his dreams are made of her poetry. The yellowed paper made me think that this lyrical love is somehow…old yet timeless and eternal, written long ago yet still waiting to be awakened by him.
    I felt like there was a beautiful symbiosis of their poetry here too . She used the ink of his unopened fantasies to scribble her rhymes and lyrics …oh my gosh. unopened fantasies makes me think of a love on the brink of ..materialising…One cannot exist without the other. That’s what I understood from those beautifully woven lines there. And all in a garden of eternity. That’s an amazing turn of phrase. A garden constantly going through cycles of time in this eternity of theirs and then you gently dropped the magical flower Jasmine in there. That is one scent that can carry me away on so many memories, and just fyi, one of my perfumes smells just like Jasmine. I love it. The poem and the scent ๐Ÿ˜˜
    I adore that he speaks of her words as though they are a song, lyrical and passionate with rhymes of “you and me” …just heavenly honey.
    And then your finale. A pause between heartbeats to watch themselves..lonely yet not alone making love beneath their moon..I may just be a hopeless and helpless romantic but I know this can be read with longing but all that came to my mind and heart when I finished reading this (for like, the 10th time) was yes, longing but also a very gentle, sweet hope of a love that was made to have life breathed into it, a sensuality that is undeniable and a spark that was created in poetry and beautiful lyrical song and dreams and two lovers made for each other.

    I adored every single word and as you know,when you write about your “you”…I just can’t even! It’s one of my favourite things that you do. Poetry wise, I mean.

    I hope this makes sense. I left the paragraphs and logic at your doorstep

    We can collect them later.

    One last sigh!

    Always yours,
    Fiery

    1. Fiery,

      What better place to start than between a lullaby and a dream?
      To be honest, I was kinda proud of that line. Another honest confession, that was the only line of this poem that was never tweaked. I liked it from the start.

      “As if her poetry sleeps between dreams.” Yes, that is the way I imagined this when I penned the opening line. The yellowed music sheets, I thought of as an old poem. One that maybe he had forgotten or had been misplaced. Sort of like a love that we have taken for granted or never materialized )like you said), but it was always there. And it was written with ink from his unopened fantasies. At the time the poem was written, they were unopened. Perhaps, no longer is the case.

      Love on the brink of materializing. I like that. Really loving your thoughts here.

      Loved your thoughts on the garden of jasmine and eternity.

      I said the poem was written on yellowed music sheets, because her words are a song, more like a ballad. Full of gentleness and love.
      I figured you would appreciate the rhymes. Smiling big time.

      A sweet hope of love…..that is so beautiful.
      I really do love writing about “you.” People appear to relate to it.

      Thank you for all of your beautiful words and sighs.
      I am grateful and humbled by your reaction to my little poem.
      Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    1. Thank you for stopping by to read and leave your nice comment.
      Much appreciated.

      My friend, I stopped at your blog to read and comment. Here is a little advice from an experienced blogger
      who has seen his blog explode with followers in a short time. I never ask anyone to read my work. I never
      include a link to my posts.

      The trick to growing a large, loyal following is this: 1) blog content. Write good shit.
      2) Follow, sincerely follow, other bloggers. Read their content and LEAVE REAL COMMENTS. The better you comment
      the more likely they are to follow you back and comment on your posts. 3) Other bloggers will read your comments
      on different blog and they will be curious to have you follow them. They will start following you. 4) Make
      sure to comment on good content of large blogs. why? They are the blogs with high traffic. More viewers
      will see your good comments. And you are more likely to pick up more followers.

      When you do things that way, your blog will grow (and if you do it well, it will grow FAST).
      Make a sincere effort to interact with people and they will follow. Introducing yourself the
      way you did is a big turn off to me and to so many others.

      That’s Blogging 101. Good luck.
      happy Saturday.

      Best of luck.

    dormendo sul mio cuscino
    tra una ninna nanna e un sogno
    scarabocchiata su fogli di musica ingialliti
    con l’inchiostro delle mie fantasie non espresse
    i tuoi testi cantavano passione
    un giardino di eternitร  e gelsomini
    fare rima tra me e te che guardi
    le nostre sagome solitarie
