who am i

Be gentle people, it has been two months since I attempted to write poetry. There is plenty of rust.

who am i

who are you
her reflection sighs
fogging the mirror
before I can steal a kiss

who am I
the mist dissipates
revealing a garden forgotten
a mirror image of me
two flowers of dark love
sowed in solitude

I soil my face with jasmines
her scent whispers to me
you are my soul
I am the air that you breathe

  1. Welcome back Drew, I do hope that you are doing well.
    Beautifully draped words,
    β€œ you are my soul
    I am the air that you breathe” oh wow my heart just floated away.
    Definitely didn’t spot any rust here.

  2. …Like riding a bicycle πŸ˜‰
    You back to your island home? Hope things are going smoothly where ever you are.
    This week it’s been just too hot (at least for me). At least the garden is growing πŸ˜€

  3. Crikey you have a lot of comments here. You’ve been working hard to reply to everyone & I hope now you are reassured that you’re not rusty at all, so step away from the WD40 because you’re well oiled & haven’t missed a beat.

    I hope you’re recuperating well, Drew xx

    1. Caz, I was recovering well. Then, the week tha I started posting poetry,
      everything went downhill. That is the reason for this late response.
      Two arteries in my heart are deteriorating faster than originally thought.
      I am scheduled for open heart surgery, omorrow morning at 7:00
      Please take good care of yourself.
      I want to find you here when I return.
      Thanks

  6. Are you kidding me, Drew? Rusty? Exquisite rather! OH it is so good to have you back! You have been missed …. your words… just still sighing with the words you magically produce. Your wand again has transformed me. SMILE xoxoxoxoxo

  7. You still got it friend. This was my favorite line “two flowers of dark love sowed in solitude…” Love isn’t always light. Sometimes it is painful as you love someone from the solitude of your thoughts and desires…especially when it’s not returned. Two people in love, living in solitude, unaware of their feelings for one another. Yes, that is a dark love.
    Sorry, feeling a bit melancholy and poetical today. Ha! I hope you are recovering quickly. Sending my love and hugs xoxooxo

  9. There is no rust in these lines, only a poet who does not realise their talent. It’s very descriptive – that’s the first thing I noticed. This is probably not how you wrote the poem, but I read it as a person who isn’t near their love, and so they’re having to remind themselves that they are still loved, even if not together.
